4. Minnesota Vikings
Plenty of teams were labeled major disappointments throughout the 2018 season, but it’s difficult to top the Minnesota Vikings coming up short of earning a playoff spot when looking at previous expectations.
One year after coming up just short of earning a trip to the Super Bowl, the Vikings were considered one of the early favorites in the NFC since the addition of Kirk Cousins was supposed to help this team reach new levels from a competitive standpoint.
Instead, Minnesota faces more pressure than ever heading into next year to make sure they bounce back, especially with all that money Cousins is earning from that ridiculous contract.
As for the defensive side of the football, while Sheldon Richardson’s status remains a mystery, it looks like the Vikings have already lost Anthony Barr to the New York Jets.
Bringing on Suh isn’t going to fill the void left by one or both players, but it would certainly put the defense in much better shape, even after agreeing to a three-year deal with Shemar Stephen.
After last season, the Vikings should be willing to bring on any player possible that seems capable of helping them live up to expectations unlike last year, whether it ends up being Suh or someone else.
