Minnesota Vikings: State of Franchise at the Start of the 2014 Offseason

New Vikings head coach, Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman have their work cut out for them.

While the Minnesota Vikings' offseason started December 30—the day following the last game ever played in the Metrodome, the 2014 NFL calendar year officially starts Tuesday, March 11. This is the day that 2013 contracts expire, and eligible players become free agents.  

Since their season-ending 14-14 win over the Detroit Lions, the Vikings have been very busy getting their offseason underway.

They fired head coach Leslie Frazier and hired former Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer to replace him. They've signed nine players to reserve/future free-agent contracts and hired independent lawyers to investigate claims made by former punter Chris Kluwe against special teams coordinator Mike Priefer.

Here's a look back at the 2013 season and how things are shaping up for the Vikings in 2014.
