As the offseason progresses, the Vikings have found interesting ways to stay above the 2021 base salary cap.

The Vikings don’t have much space to work with, especially when you consider that the team still needs to sign draft picks.

With Minnesota signing Dakota Dozier to the veteran minimum, the team has a little more than $7.4 million in 2021 salary cap space, per Over The Cap (H/T Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press). That number includes Nick Vigil’s contract, despite there being no reports of the linebacker officially signing his deal just yet.

Minnesota should have ample cap space to sign rookies when you add in the cap savings from Kyle Rudolph’s post-June 1 designation. I wouldn’t expect any major signings the rest of the way, though.

The Vikings have already allocated a lot of salary cap space to players like CB Patrick Peterson and DT Dalvin Tomlinson. However, there is a chance that the team can go for another depth option.
