The latest free agency rumors link the Minnesota Vikings to having interest in Baltimore Ravens right tackle Rick Wagner, a 2013 fifth-round draft pick.
There’s no question that the Minnesota Vikings need help on the offensive line this offseason. Immediate assistant will come after March 9 through free agency, and the Vikings will have to look high and low for help as seemingly every position is open for competition.
The latest rumors link Minnesota to Baltimore Ravens right tackle Rick Wagner. Entering his fifth season, Wagner could hit free agency due to the Ravens lack of cap space this offseason. With the Vikings obvious need on the offensive line, the 2013 fifth-round pick could command a price tag of up to $10 million.
Born near Milwaukee, Wagner played in college with the Wisconsin Badgers where he helped the team to three Big Ten Championships. In his time in Baltimore, he has started all but three games since the 2014 season. Pro Football Focus ranked him as the 18th best tackle in the league last season.
The offensive line debacle will provide an unforeseen test for Vikings general manager Rick Spielman. Before the 2016 season, the group was said to be ripe with competition, but after a string of decimating injuries is left with uncertainty.
