The Vikings hosted reporters on Monday afternoon in Eagan, including KSTP Sports. A number of players held court in the locker room to review Sunday’s playoff loss vs. the Giants and to look back at the season as a whole.

There was plenty of looking ahead too, with many changes expected.

KSTP spoke with C Garrett Bradbury, WR Justin Jefferson, LBs Jordan Hicks and Eric Kendricks, and CB Chandon Sullivan.

The Vikings’ big free agents are Bradbury, DL Dalvin Tomlinson, and CB Patrick Peterson.

Players the front office could look at to restructure their contracts to create salary cap space or outright release include WR Adam Thielen, RB Dalvin Cook, Kendricks, S Harrison Smith, FB C.J. Ham, and others.

ILB Danielle Hunter is worth monitoring, as well. Did the Vikings feel like he fit their move to the 3-4 defense, or could they look to trade him?

Head coach Kevin O’Connell and general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah are expected to meet with reporters on Wednesday.
