Minnesota wasn’t made of cap space when the team signed Bashaud Breeland. That’s why it was kind of an interesting choice.

The Vikings have three players — Patrick Peterson, Cameron Dantzler and Mackensie Alexander — who could have slotted to cornerback spots, in addition to decent players who could rotate in.

Minnesota had other pressing needs to address this offseason, but the Vikings signed a cornerback. Now, the team has a secondary with depth.

Even better news for the Vikings: Breeland’s deal isn’t incredibly high in cap space. As reported by Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune, Breeland has a cap hit of $2,727,944. He has a $1.075 million base salary and a $1 million signing bonus.

That means the Vikings won’t be strapped for cash after the decision to sign Breeland. The team has roughly $12 million left in cap 2021 space, according to Over the Cap. So hey, maybe they can still sign that edge rusher.
