The Vikings finally have a backup safety. They’ve signed Cheap Nate Meadors Jersey to the active roster to take the spot of Cheap Danielle Hunter Jersey, who will spend at least three weeks on injured reserve.

The team also announced that it is elevating linebacker Cheap Hardy Nickerson Jr. Jersey from the practice squad to the active roster. This years, teams can have 55 players on the active roster for each game, instead of the typical 53. However, only 48 can actually be active on gameday.

Meadors began his Vikings career as a cornerback and is listed broadly as a “defensive back” by the team, but he played almost exclusively at safety during training camp. Meadors was able to hold off rookies Cheap Josh Metellus Jersey, Cheap Brian Cole II Jersey and Cheap Myles Dorn Jersey – as well as waiver addition Steven Parker – to win the No. 3 safety job.

After going undrafted out of UCLA in 2019, Meadors impressed as a rookie and spent most of last year on the Vikings’ practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster for a Week 2 game against the Packers and gave up a touchdown to Geronimo Allison. That was as a cornerback. The Vikings believe that the 5’11” Meadors has more upside at safety.

It was very interesting when the Vikings released their initial 53-man roster and stars Cheap Harrison Smith Jersey and Cheap Anthony Harris Jersey were the only safeties listed. But it was always assumed that there would be a move coming prior to Week 1. “We won’t go into a game with two safeties, trust me,” Mike Zimmer said on Friday.

If things go to plan, Smith and Harris will play every single defensive snap on Sunday and Meadors will only potentially play on special teams. But if Smith or Harris need to miss any snaps for whatever reason, it’ll be Meadors out there in their place.

Nickerson was signed by the Vikings during training camp. He has played in 37 games with the Bengals over the past three years and was able to quickly adapt to the Vikings’ defensive scheme. He made the initial roster as the No. 5 linebacker but immediately lost that spot to waiver claim Cheap Ryan Connelly Jersey and was signed to the practice squad.

The Vikings now have 54 players on the active roster heading into a big Week 1 game against the Packers. They’ll have to name six inactives on Sunday morning to get down to 48 players for the game. It wouldn’t surprise me if Connelly was inactive since he’s been with the team for less than a week and has only had three practices to get acclimated.

If Connelly is inactive, the two backup linebackers behind Cheap Eric Kendricks Jersey, Cheap Anthony Barr Jersey, and Cheap Eric Wilson Jersey would be Cheap Troy Dye Jersey and Nickerson. Both of those players would be most likely to contribute on special teams.

They also had a wave of new Custom Football Jerseys

The 2020 Minnesota Vikings’ pass rush ranked dead last in the NFL per PFF. Until last season, Mike Zimmer’s pass rush had never been lower than 20th during his time here. There were a few factors that played into this outlier of a season that will lead to a stark change in personnel and improvement on the defensive line in 2021.

Injuries and opt-outs were the biggest reason the pass rush suffered in 2020. Minnesota’s four best defenders up front — Cheap Michael Pierce Jersey, Cheap Danielle Hunter Jersey,Cheap Anthony Barr Jersey, and Cheap Eric Kendricks Jersey — all were injured or missed time.

That’s not the only reason the pass rush was awful last season. They also had a wave of new secondary players come in to replace departed corners. The top three corners for the Vikings last season had an average of .33 years of experience in the NFL entering the season, with second-year corner Cheap Kris Boyd Jersey being the veteran of the group.

The young secondary started slow, so a Vikings’ pass rush that was already missing key pieces never had time to create pressure on their own with receivers open down field.

Regardless, Minnesota certainly will maneuver to improve the defensive line this offseason, and there are some moves that make perfect sense for their situation.

The D-line will have at least one notable departure this offseason.

Cheap Shamar Stephen Jersey has been a reliable depth defensive tackle for six years, but he is 29 years old and likely will be a cap casualty. If the Vikings cut or trade him, they would save nearly $3.8 million for next season.

He’s an obvious cut. But are there any others on the line?

The answer is most likely no.

As much as young players like fourth rounders Cheap Jaleel Johnson Jersey and Cheap Jalyn Holmes Jersey have disappointed in starting spots so far, the Vikings need bodies on the line and don’t save much money by cutting them.

It’s possible that Hunter’s contract gets renegotiated, but that is a big if, and it will only hit the cap in future seasons. Besides, there have been rumors that Hunter’s party wants him to be the highest paid end in the NFL, and that’s not unreasonable.

Cheap Ifeadi Odenigbo Jersey will likely have the starting spot on the line across from Hunter, but that side will always be a defensive end by committee with Cheap D.J. Wonnum Jersey, Holmes, and Hercules Mata’afa. It’s likely Wonnum will have earned the most snaps over the season if he develops after a solid rookie campaign, given he’s a complement to Hunter.

It’s more likely the Vikings add an end through the draft than free agency due to the cap restraint and talent already there. But, that’s where the defensive tackle position gets interesting.

Stephen’s looming departure leaves Pierce in his first year playing after opting out last year, and Johnson opposite of him. Minnesota is in dire need of a stable 3-technique and has been since Sharrif Floyd got hurt. That’s why Cheap Hercules Mataafa Jersey likely they sell out for Geno Atkins.

Zimmer has coached Atkins firsthand, and the defense desperately needs a good 3-tech. That’s why they tried Sheldon Richardson in 2018 — he just didn’t stick.

The pieces at the tackle position look a whole lot better when used as intended — for depth. Cheap James Lynch Jersey and Cheap Armon Watts Jersey were not meant to be significant role players last year, although the rookie Lynch did have an impressive sack in limited playing time.

With the addition of Atkins and Pierce, and the return of Hunter, the line will once again be able to pressure opposing quarterbacks. The rotational players also have shown they can play at an NFL level with all of the adversity on the defense in last season. I think they performed relatively well considering the amount of issues they dealt with.

The defensive line can only go up from here, and with added depth through the draft I think it will be a top-10 unit easily if they are able to snag Atkins and keep everyone healthy. Last season was an outlier; expect the D-line to be a strong point in the 2021-22 Vikings’ defense.
