September 25, 2016; Charlotte, NC, USA; The Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (82) hit the Carolina Panthers middle linebacker Luke Quetchley. Compulsory Credit: Jim Dedman – USA Today Sports.
One and a half weeks ago, former All-Pro linebacker Luke Quetchley joined ESPN. Sports Center To give some insights into the 2022 NFL offseason.
Quetchley was asked about the league’s best secondary, and nowhere, He nominated the Minnesota Vikings“I’m going with the Vikings. Harrison Smith, Patrick Peterson, two young Rookie – Lewis Cine out of Georgia, and they drafted [Andrew] Booth out of Clemson. “
Quetchley’s omission was surprising because, in March, Minnesota secondary seemed suspicious, only to be headlined by Harrison Smith and Cameron Dantzler. But then General Manager Quessy Adofo-Mensah re-signed Patrick Peterson, added Chandan Sullivan to the cornerback, and then drafted the Cine and Booth mentions Quetchley mentioned.
Of course, the video clip has spread in the Vikings digital community because Quetchle is not a pea-brain splatter of lies. The man knew his things and had no preconceived notion of declaring Minnesota his pick.
Alas, he chose the Vikings, and perhaps the team’s subordinates weren’t ready to believe once.
And here’s the embarrassment – The Vikings spend very few dollars in the 2022 secondary. Compared to the rest of the teams in the league, Minnesota allocates the third-lowest cap dollar Up to his secondary with .7 23.7 million. Only the Atlanta Falcon and the New York Giants invest less. Every Spotrac.com, here is the breakdown:
The Vikings scrap the league’s top 10 divisions at quarterbacks and fall behind for spending but somehow “make up for it” with a price-based approach with protection and cornerbacks.

And affordability check out because Harrison Smith is the only defender in the megabox of Minnesota secondary earnings.
Overall, if the Vikings bring Quetchley’s hypothesis to life and transform it into one of the NFL’s top secondary, they will do so on a teenage budget.
In addition, it is good for the future because Dantzler, Booth, Cine and Binam are less than 24 years old.
