Running back DJ Ware and quarterback Dan Orlovsky were released, the Orlovsky one being a bit of a surprise.

Nearly every year there's one or two surprise playoff teams that no one expected to be in contention. At the end of the 2012 season, the Colts and the Vikings were making surprise playoff appearances, but their success was as much a testament to the inconsistent nature of last season's wildcard contenders as it was to those teams' abilities on the field.
Heading into the 2012 season, most experts thought six or seven wins would be a good season for the Minnesota Vikings. But the purple shocked the world, moving from three to 10 wins in the blink of one offseason.
