The Minnesota Vikings have released WR Bernard Berrian.

Footballguys view: Berrian was a healthy scratch two of the last three games for the Vikings so this move comes as no surprise. He met with Leslie Frazier to discuss his dwindling role with the team, but apparently the Vikings wanted to go in a different direction.

  Vikings | Will discuss Bernard Berrian's future this week    Sun Oct 23, 10:11 PM

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said Sunday, Oct. 23, that the team will discuss WR Bernard Berrian's future this weeek. He was deactivated for the second time in three weeks, although it was not reportedly due to disciplinary reasons. Frazier was vague on the reasoning for the decision and wouldn't commit when asked if the veteran has a future with the team going forward. 'It's something that we'll talk about this week and we'll talk about it more this week,' Frazier said.

The Minnesota Vikings have declared CB Antoine Winfield, WR Bernard Berrian, CB Chris Cook, DL D'Aundre Reed, OL DeMarcus Love, SS Jamarca Sanford, C John Sullivan inactive for Week 7.

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian had five catches for 54 yards in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears, his former team. Berrian came into the game with just two catches for 37 yards in four games this season.

Footballguys view: We still wouldn't pick him up unless it was a 32 team, start 4 WR league.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian puts deactivation behind him    Thu Oct 13, 01:59 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian refused to discuss his deactivation in Week 5, reportedly due to a disciplinary reason. 'That's old news,' Berrian said. 'I'm already over it. Can't do nothing about it now.' He also said he believes his standing on the team, and chemisty with QB Donovan McNabb, is fine.

Footballguys view: Berrian had better start playing better or he will continue to be a healthy scratch each week. The team could keep giving more opportunity to guys like Michael Jenkins and Devin Aromashodu.

The Minnesota Vikings have declared CB Antoine Winfield, WR Bernard Berrian, OL Brandon Fusco, DL D'Aundre Reed, OL DeMarcus Love, FS Mistral Raymond, LB Xavier Adibi inactive for Week 5.

Footballguys view: Asher Allen gets the start in place of Winfield and Devin Aromashodu in place of Berrian. Aromashodu is a good pickup in very deep leagues to see what happens now that Berrian has been rightfully benched.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian, lawmaker mend fences    Wed Oct 5, 01:43 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian and a Minnesota state lawmaker have apparently patched up their Twitter feud. State Representative John Kriesel and Berrian tweeted nasty comments to each other, but later exchanged phone messages and made nice. 'I deserved it. I ripped on him,' Kriesel said. 'I'm just surprised that he even cares about what me or others say.'

Footballguys view: Berrian should worry less about what is being tweeted about him and more about catching footballs and helping his team win. On the other hand Kriesel should worry more about helping his constituents and less about what Berrian is not doing on the football field.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian a non-factor    Tue Sep 27, 02:19 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian has only one catch for 17 yards through three weeks this year. He was targeted four times in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions and two came in the fourth quarter. The team wants to use Berrian as a deep factor, but QB Donovan McNabb's inaccuracy and the poor pass protection have ruined those plans so far. 'There were a few times where we tried to target Bernard, but I think we'll continue to try to work on getting him the football,' head coach Leslie Frazier said.

Footballguys view: File this under 'not surprised.' Berrian will fade into the background and a player like Devin Aromashodu could be mixed in more.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian invisible through three games    Mon Sep 26, 08:34 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian has mustered just one reception for 17 yards through thrree games. The team hoped by getting Berrian to take a paycut before training camp, and, in turn, making this the final year of his contract, the receiver would be motivated to return to his 2008 form.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian a focal point of the offense?    Mon Aug 29, 04:14 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian needs to resume his role as a deep threat to help take some pressure off WR Percy Harvin working underneath and RB Adrian Peterson in the ground game. Berrian flashed some of that potential on a 49-yard touchdown catch in the team's third preseason game. 'Bernard Berrian is really the guy we like to see be able to do that for us. Michael Jenkins has that kind of capability as well but we're counting on Bernard to be able to make the type of plays he made on that first drive. If that does happen for us, we have a chance to be an explosive offense,' head coach Leslie Frazier said. He seems to have chemistry with QB Donovan McNabb, which is something he didn't seem to have with QB Brett Favre. Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave is making it a point to make sure Berrian isn't forgotten like he was in previous seasons. While there was speculation Berrian may be a salary cap casualty, strong play and a restructured contract appear to make him a lock to make the team's final roster.

Footballguys view: Berrian will help stretch the field and keep defenses from cramping the line of scrimmage. However, we don't feel Berrian will be a huge fantasy factor this year. We like him more as a WR5 who you can select in the final rounds of your fantasy draft.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian to be FA after season    Fri Aug 5, 05:58 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian will become a free agent after this season as part of the restructured contract he agreed to with Vikings. His original contract ran through the 2013 season.

Footballguys view: Berrian is in line to start opposite Percy Harvin right now, but Michael Jenkins was signed and Berrian was nearly worthless last year.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian restructures contract     Tue Aug 2, 09:59 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian has agreed to restructure his contract, so he will be unable to participate in practice until Thursday, Aug. 4. Berrian was reportedly 'very happy' with his new contract, which will make a free agent in 2012, a year earlier than his original contract.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian will have great year according to head coach    Sat Jul 30, 02:47 AM

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said bolstering the team's group of receivers is not the team's current focus. He also noted that WR Bernard Berrian will have a 'great year' for the Vikings and help stretch the field. Berrian's name has been tossed around often as a possible cap casualty, as he has a $3.9 million salary and a salary-cap hit of more than $6 million this year. There is no telling if Berrian would stick with the Vikings should they sign a free-agent receiver.

Footballguys view: Apparently Frazier didn't watch Berrian play last year because he was busy with all of his new head coach duties after Brad Childress was fired, and he was preoccupied with the defense before that happened. The Vikings still need to sign a starting quality receiver to play opposite Percy Harvin because Berrian's best days are behind him.

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian might be salary cap casualty    Thu Jul 21, 02:31 AM

The Minnesota Vikings might cut WR Bernard Berrian when the NFL lockout is lifted. He has a $6.258 million cap number, and by cutting him the team would save $3.7 million.

Footballguys view: Berrian was a non-factor last year and should be given his release. Watch out for Jaymar Johnson, a shifty, fast return/slot receiver who has been working out with Larry Fitzgerald. The Vikings will also obviously have to address wideout in free agency, beyond making a run at Sidney Rice or his replacement.

  Vikings | Releasing Bernard Berrian would save team cap space    Thu Jul 14, 02:58 PM

The Minnesota Vikings may consider releasing WR Bernard Berrian once the lockout is over because they would save $3.7 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: A new Collective Bargaining Agreement will also bring a new salary cap. The Vikings need to clear some cap space and Berrian is expendable at this point in his career.

  Vikings | Several players fail to attend workout    Thu Jun 2, 09:47 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder had hoped to bring together a larger group of teammates for workouts this week, but several veterans who had committed to attend didn't show up as expected Wednesday, June 1. WRs Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian, RB Lorenzo Booker and TE Visanthe Shiancoe had been expected to join a group of seven players who worked out at the IMG Madden Football Academy, but none showed up, citing a variety of excuses. 'I thought it would be hard and probably should have had better planning,' Ponder said of scheduling the informal minicamp right after the Memorial Day weekend. 'We'll definitely do it again and hopefully a bunch more guys will show up ... I talked to a few guys, some other guys we couldn't get a hold of ... We got some good work in. To be around some of the guys was good for me.'

  Vikings | Bernard Berrian dealing with a lesser role    Sat Oct 9, 05:27 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian said his attitude needs to change, reports Tom Pelissero, of 1500ESPN.com. Berrian played in 85.5 percent of the team's Week 1 plays and 89.2 percent of their Week 2 plays, but saw his playing time to drop to 58.8 percent of their Week 3 plays. When asked if he's happy, Berrian said: 'Good question. Anytime a player's reps get cut or anything of that nature happens, a player's never going to be happy.' Berrian said rotating in and out of a game is more of a challenge. 'You don't really know what's going on. It's a little bit harder to find out what your role is but you just have to take your shots and roll with it,' Berrian said. Berrian's role will likely be reduced even more with Randy Moss now on board.

Footballguys view: Berrian lacks any chemistry with Brett Favre and that's why we've seen his role reduced in this offense. Now with Randy Moss there will be even fewer targets going towards Berrian.
