  Vikings | Jim Kleinsasser to get goal-line carries    Wed Dec 28, 11:11 PM

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said Wednesday, Dec. 28, that FB Jim Kleinsasser will get the ball at the 1-yard line if the team gets down close to the end zone in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Toby Gerhart is still one of the strongest RB plays this year, but don't be disappointed when he doesn't get the first 1-yard plunge TD (if there is one).

  Vikings | Three TEs entering last year of contracts    Thu Apr 21, 01:53 PM

Minnesota Vikings TEs Visanthe Shiancoe, Jim Kleinsasser and Jeff Dugan are entering the final year of their contracts, reports Tom Pelissero, of 1500ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Shiancoe's been a good weapon for the team in the passing game since coming over from the Giants. This draft class isn't that strong at the TE position, so the team may consider drafting one in the mid- to late-rounds of the 2011 NFL Draft.
