The only quasi-notable offensive move enacted by the Minnesota Vikings outside of free agency in 2021 was a trade with the Arizona Cardinals that donned guard-center Mason Cole in purple and gold clothes for the upcoming season. General Manager Rick Spielman sent a 6th-Round pick to Arizona for Cole’s services.
Indeed, it was an offseason of defense for Minnesota, although the 2021 NFL Draft was an offensively-themed one. In that draft, Spielman added Christian Darrisaw and Wyatt Davis to the offensive line and Kellen Mond to the quarterback room.
The offseason can be classified as a defense-first operation.
