AROUND THE NFC NORTH

Checking in with the Vikings’ division opponents after the first wave of free agency:

BEARS

What they accomplished: Upgraded an abysmal receiving corps by adding Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and pass-catching tight end Trey Burton.

Still left to do: Find more pass rushers and depth along the offensive line.

LIONS

What they accomplished: In Devon Kennard, they acquired a versatile edge-rushing linebacker who will help new coach Matt Patricia when he chooses to mix in 3-4 looks.

Still left to do: Find some experience to upgrade a tight end position that has no player with more than four NFL catches.

PACKERS

What they accomplished: Added Jimmy Graham to a barren tight end position and took a one-year gamble that Muhammad Wilkerson will recapture his pass-rushing prowess.

Still left to do: Find multiple cornerbacks to strengthen the weakest spot on the roster.
