A look at the unguaranteed portion of Vikings' player salaries for 2005, and those current Vikings scheduled for free agency in a month.


* Please note that these salaries are base compensation ONLY and are, in many cases, just a minor portion of the what counts against the salary cap.

The salary cap for every NFL team in 2005 will be 65.5 percent of all shared gate revenues and all shared broadcast revenues (defined gross revenue). ERFA = Exclusive Rights Free Agent; RFA = Restricted Free Agent; UFA = Unrestricted Free Agent.
