Bieniemy has a history with the Minnesota Vikings serving as a running backs coach back in the day before moving on to Kansas City. He's an offensive mind on one of the most innovative, attack heavy offensive teams but there are questions surrounding how much influence Andy Reid actually has on the offense and why Bieniemy hasn't been hired for a head job to date.

Similar to Bieniemy, Leftwich is a young up and coming offensive mind in the league. He's tied to a dominant offense in TB but also in tow with Arians and Brady.

Lombardi and the Chargers might be out of the playoffs already which could expedite the process for him finding a new job. Like others, he has a proven characteristic that the Vikings might like having quickly developed and offense around a dynamic and young quarterback. He brings in some of the new look NFL that the fanbase is clamoring for.
