  Vikings | Case Keenum the frontrunner?    Sun Feb 18, 09:22 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum is still the favorite to return as the starter in 2018 because offensive coordinator John DeFilippo prefers athletic quarterbacks, according to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

  Vikings | Minnesota may look at AJ McCarron    Sun Feb 18, 12:36 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron is expected to receive interest from the Minnesota Vikings if the Vikings are not able to re-sign impending free-agent QB Case Keenum.

Footballguys view: McCarron's entry into the free agent market could change the plans for multiple teams out there. A fifth-round pick out of Alabama in 2014, McCarron is known as a game-manager type of quarterback. He can work well within a system but struggles to improvise when a play breaks down. In this QB desperate league however, McCarron is set to get an offer similar to what Mike Glennon (3-year, $45 million, $18.5 million guaranteed) got from the Bears in 2017.

The Minnesota Vikings are hiring Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo as their new offensive coordinator, according to a source.

Footballguys view: DeFilippo is going to have a say as to who will play quarterback for the Vikings in 2018. Many expect the Vikings to be major players in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes that are set to begin in less than a month.

  Vikings | Pat Shurmur honored    Sun Feb 4, 08:48 AM

New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, who served as the offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings during the 2017 season, was named the 2017 Associated Press Assistant Coach of the Year Saturday, Feb. 3.

Footballguys view: The Vikings offense got better despite losing their starting quarterback and running back. They overhauled the offensive line and had balance on offense. Shurmur immediately improved the offense after Norv Turner left in 2016, and now he'll turn his attention to a Giants offense in flux in identity and a few key positions.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook headed for big year?    Fri Feb 2, 11:34 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) has 'progressed nicely' from his knee surgery, general manager Rick Spielman said Thursday, Feb. 1, and Spielman said Cook could have the same success that Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson had coming off his knee surgery in 2012.

Footballguys view: Cook's injury happened relatively early in the year. If he hadn't gotten hurt, he probably would have only been looking up at Todd Gurley and LeVeon Bell in the final running back value tally. If we get to see him play in the preseason, he'll be a first round consideration, and maybe even if we don't.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater FA status unclear    Fri Feb 2, 01:47 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater could have his contract tolled, which would put him back under contract with the Vikings for 2018 at his salary rate ($1.354 million) from the past season as opposed to entering unrestricted free agency. The issue stems from Bridgewater spending the first six weeks of this past season on the PUP list and whether or not he was medically cleared at any point before those six weeks elapsed. GM Rick Spielman indicated the decision to have the contract tolled would come from the NFL and the NFLPA, and not from the Vikings.

Footballguys view: This could greatly change the complexion of the choice the Vikings have to make between three potential free agent quarterbacks. If Bridgewater is back at pennies on the dollar in this quarterback market, they could afford to sign one of Case Keenum and Sam Bradford to create a competition.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen healthy entering offseason    Thu Feb 1, 01:54 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) indicated that the back fractures he sustained during the Divisional Round win over the New Orleans Saints were not serious, and he is 'pretty much healthy' heading into the offseason.

Footballguys view: He's got plenty of time to heal and we don't think this will impact his 2018 at all. Thielen probably won't even miss camp.

  Vikings | Pat Elflein should be ready for camp    Wed Jan 31, 07:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings C Pat Elflein (ankle) underwent successful ankle surgery Monday, Jan. 29, according to a source. Elflein is expected to be ready for the start of training camp and could return sooner.

Footballguys view: Elflein was one of the most successful third-round picks of last year's draft, making the all-rookie team and starting all 14 games he played in. He was part a stunning offensive line rebuild and will be a long-term cornerstone for this team.

  Vikings | John DeFilippo may be OC candidate?    Wed Jan 31, 05:31 PM

The Minnesota Vikings hope to talk with Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo about their offensive coordinator position after Super Bowl LII, according to a source.

Footballguys view: If DeFilippo isn't hired in Minnesota, Vikings quarterback coach Kevin Stefanski could be the leading candidate. DeFillippo is also a candidate for the open offensive coordinator job on the Giants staff, but so is Eagles running back coach Duce Staley. Staley could also become the Eagles offensive coordinator if DeFillippo is hired elsewhere.

  Vikings | Minnesota signs two players    Mon Jan 29, 04:27 PM

Minnesota Vikings OT Storm Norton and S Jack Tocho were signed to Reserve/Future contracts Monday, Jan. 29.

Footballguys view: Norton is a big tackle who was on the team's practice squad until a few weeks ago, and Tocho was a seventh-round draft pick of the team who spent time on the practice squad. Tocho was weighing an offer from Houston, but decided to stay in Minnesota.

  Vikings | Mike Zimmer not sold on Case Keenum?    Tue Jan 23, 03:19 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum's future with the Vikings is in limbo. Head coach Mike Zimmer said the Vikings will go through the process of determining who their starting quarterback will be next season. Keenum and fellow QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford are all in the running.

Footballguys view: Reports before the NFC Championship Game indicated the Vikings were going to franchise tag Keenum and also try to keep Bridgewater around. Now, after losing in that game, things don't seem as certain for Keenum...even Peter King is speculating that Keenum will be the Broncos starter in Week 1 of the 2018 season. Stay tuned, as Keenum would have a strong price tag if available in this quarterback desperate league.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon wants to be featured back    Mon Jan 22, 02:16 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Jerick McKinnon said he would like to be a featured back for a team next season.

Footballguys view: McKinnon proved this year that he could handle a larger workload. He's more than a change-of-pace back but no matter where he goes there will likely be a split in touches. That's the nature of the game today, and even with teams that have great RBs (Saints, Falcons) there is a dual responsibility by two quality backs. It's a great RB class in the 2018 NFL draft, so McKinnon may not have the hottest market.

  Vikings | Case Keenum unsure of team's interest    Mon Jan 22, 01:53 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum said he has not received any indication from the Vikings on if they want to re-sign him this offseason.

Footballguys view: The word before the NFC Championship Game was that the Vikings were going to franchise tag Keenum and try to keep Teddy Bridgewater as well. Both are set to be unrestricted free agents (so is Sam Bradford) at this time. With Pat Shurmur moving on to be the head coach of the Giants, it would be interesting to see if he wanted to take Keenum with him.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook making progress    Mon Jan 22, 12:52 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) said he is able to do some jogging but does not have a timetable for when he will return to football activities.

Footballguys view: There is no timetable, but Cook should be ready to go in training camp. Cook may not be ready at the start of training camp, but without setbacks he could be ready late in camp to get ramped up before the start of the regular season. He's an RB1 for fantasy owners when healthy. We'll be monitoring his progress closely this offseason.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater believes he can start    Mon Jan 22, 12:29 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater said he views himself as a starting quarterback next season but is not sure if it will be with the Vikings.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater can start, but who knows where it would be. He's a smart and accurate quarterback who had his career thrown off path by a major knee injury. Set to hit the open market, Bridgewater is an interesting option for a team looking to give him a second chance.

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to consider former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo for their soon-to-be vacant offensive coordinator position. He has also received interest from several other teams.

  Vikings | Minnesota could interview Mike McCoy    Sun Jan 21, 10:10 AM

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to consider former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for their soon-to-be vacant offensive coordinator position. He has also received interest from several other teams.

Footballguys view: McCoy has had a mixed record lately, overseeing a typically underachieving Chargers team as the head coach and a very disappointing Broncos offense this year. He did do good things with Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow in Denver before leaving to coach the Chargers, and would have an offense in Minnesota that won't need much in the way of adjusting, other than the question of who their starting quarterback will be next season.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen expected to play    Sun Jan 21, 08:52 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Jan. 21, despite being in plenty of pain due to a lower back ailment, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Thielen could have a treatment administered to numb the pain before the game. He will play a big role against an Eagles secondary that likes to play off man and allows chances for run after catch yards, which Thielen has excelled at this year.

Minnesota Vikings CB Mackensie Alexander (rib, illness) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Jan. 21. He had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two out of three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis.

Footballguys view: If there is a weakness in the Vikings secondary, it is the slot and dime corners. Alexander and veteran Terence Newman will be on the spot to slow down Nelson Agholor.
