A list of the best Minnesota Vikings of all time. Formed in 1961, the Minnesota Vikings have been one of the NFL's hard luck franchises. The team has had a lot of success, making the Super Bowl in 1969 along with 25 playoff berths since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. But despite that and three more Super Bowl appearances, the Vikings have yet to win a Super Bowl championship. That isn't due to the lack of great players. The Vikings have had a number of superstars wear the purple and gold. For years, the Purple People Eaters, the nickname for the Vikings defensive line, were one of the most intimidating in the league. The Vikings had several Hall of Famer suit up for them during their Super Bowl years like Fran Tarkenton, Alan Page and Ron Yary. These players are considered some of the best football players of all time.

The Vikings have drafted well over the years. They've drafted two of the best players ever in Randy Moss and 2012 NFL MVP Adrian Peterson. In 1990, the team successfully claimed Cris Carter off waivers. Carter was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013 and is one of the best wide receivers in football history.
