  Vikings | Klint Kubiak officially hired    Mon Jan 14, 09:19 PM

Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Vikings have hired Denver Broncos offensive assistant Klint Kubiak as their quarterbacks coach.

Footballguys view: Klint is the son of Gary Kubiak, Super Bowl winning coach and new offensive advisor for the Vikings. We should see Klint rise up the coaching ranks in a similar fashion to how Kyle Shanahan did the same thing (son of a Super Bowl winning coach) years ago.

  Vikings | Minnesota adds Brian Pariani to staff    Mon Jan 14, 09:14 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have hired former Denver Broncos tight ends coach Brian Pariani as their new tight ends coach.

Footballguys view: Pariani is part of the "Kubiak Crew" the Vikings hired this week. He'll be in charge of TE Kyle Rudolph and getting the most out of his targets from QB Kirk Cousins.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins has confidence of coach    Thu Jan 3, 01:32 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has the backing of head coach Mike Zimmer who spoke at a news conference Thursday, Jan. 3. 'I have a lot of confidence in Kirk Cousins,' said Zimmer, who predicted the quarterback will play well next year.

Footballguys view: Cousins was a 4,000-yard passer for the fourth year in a row in 2018, and he finished the season with 30 touchdowns to only 10 interceptions. The Vikings didn't make the playoffs after making it all the way to the NFC Championship Game last year with Case Keenum as their starter. Cousins has two years remaining on his fully guaranteed deal with the pressure increasing to pay off with a championship run.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray wants to start    Wed Jan 2, 10:58 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray said he is open to re-signing with the Vikings this offseason but is not content to being in the backup role and wants to start in 2019.

Footballguys view: Murray could be productive in a downhill running game but needs a good offensive line to succeed. Veteran backs usually take a step down in role when they have to go through a cycle of the free agent market with so many talented runners entering via the draft every year.

  Vikings | Minnesota signs 10 to futures deals    Wed Jan 2, 07:28 PM

The Minnesota Vikings signed WR Jeff Badet, OT Adam Bisnowaty, LB Reshard Cliett, DT Curtis Cothran, C Cornelius Edison, TE Cole Hikutini, CB Jalen Myrick, OT Storm Norton, DE Ifeadi Odenigbo and RB Roc Thomas to Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Jan. 2. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Badet is a speedster who could replace Aldrick Robinson next year. Thomas made the team out of training camp and flashed speed in the preseason but eventually gave up his spot to Ameer Abdullah.

  Vikings | No changes in Minnesota    Mon Dec 31, 11:46 AM

Updating an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman will remain in their positions after owners Zygi and Mark Wilf sat in on the final team meeting.

Footballguys view: The Vikings fell short of the postseason in 2018, even though they paid QB Kirk Cousins the first fully guaranteed contract in NFL history. Some felt Zimmer may be on the chopping block because the team fell short this season after playing in the NFC Championship last season. Zimmer is under contract through 2019, so we should see the team get him a short-term extension in the near future.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs gets into end zone    Sun Dec 23, 06:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs managed two grabs for just 10 yards in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions but at least he was able to score a touchdown.

Footballguys view: The Vikings receivers aren't the engine of the offense any more. Diggs is more WR3/Flex than WR2 against the Bears in Week 17 Superbowls next week.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph registered nine receptions for 122 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook ran 16 times for 73 yards in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions and he added three grabs for 35 yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: Cook was strong against a good Lions run defense. He has come on late to show why he was so highly drafted in fantasy leagues, but faces a tough Bears defense next week.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins tosses three touchdowns    Sun Dec 23, 05:35 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-28 passes for 253 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Cousins' numbers were inflated by a hail mary catch by Kyle Rudolph. He is going to be a lower volume passer in this version of the Vikings offense and won't be a QB1 against the Bears next week.

  Vikings | John DeFilippo fired    Tue Dec 11, 11:49 AM

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo was fired Tuesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: The Vikings offense has not been good this year. DeFilippo was supposed to work his way to a head coaching position and he had free agent QB Kirk Cousins to help him there. Instead, the Vikings offense has struggled to score points or even move the ball. DeFilippo will get another chance, perhaps not as an offensive coordinator, soon enough when the coaching bloodbath takes place after the regular season.
