Must Keeps:
Watson
Hoomanawanui
Williams
I'll take Hightower over Khiry
We need the 2 guards for backups

I prefer Robinson over Hightower but if he isn't able to return healthy next season from that horrific injury I can see them choosing Hightower

I really hope K. Williams returns for next season... one of my all-time favorite Vikings' players.

But in all honestly, none of these guys are priority one re-signings.

Re: Players currently not on our team (UFA)

We desperately need a LG. iirc Lelito is a good run blocker but not so good in the passing game. I read that he's just not mobile enough in the phone booth. I understand that he is better at RG than at LG but I only have my own two eyes and the threads from the BNG to rely on!

I would resign Forbath. He was above avg and better than what we have had in the past 4/5 years. Robinson should get the lowest tender. I just don't see him worth more than that. MIA, Spillers, Cadet and a surprise UDFA will do. Lelito is a must. He is better than our other FA's and should come cheap compared to UFA's. Hill disappeared and should also come cheap. Watson may demand more than we can spare. Hoomanawanui should also come cheap and is one heck of a blocker.

I think we can do better than Forbath, He's ranked 36th in the NFL in FG's. That's awful, even if it is fairly small sample size.

There are a half dozen high quality K's in free agency this year.

Oh no doubt I would like someone better but how realistic is it that we spend 2 million on a FA kicker? And that's lowballing. Crosby made 3.5 million last year. Tucker made 2.6 million. Next would be Zuerlein which only made 760K last year but will probably demand 2+ this year.

Re: Players currently not on our team (UFA)

versatile OG Geoff Schwartz NYG might be an answer.
