Additionally, he is currently ranked 27th in the NFL in total defense, as he has 393.3 total yards allowed per game. Furthermore, he stands 29th in scoring defense, with 29.7 points allowed per game.

The Minnesota Vikings right now

Currently, as the Vikings have signed in Alexander, it leaves them with a flexible inner team. However, regarding Alexander’s contract, they have yet to make the detailed information on it. 

As of now, the Vikings only wish to keep Alexander in some other position, even with the running possibility that he could compete for the slot corner. In fact, they seem to have made a strengthening plan now.

With Peterson in cornerback, they have Jeff Gladney and Mike Hughes at the slot corner. Following it, they have a space in the free safety alongside Harrison Smith. 

As for Mike Hughes, it is uncertain if he is to get an upgrade in his position, as it is his last season with the Vikings as per the contract. Also, moving Hughes would only save the Vikings $1.177 million in cap space.
