  Vikings | Two in contention for slot WR job    Fri Jul 18, 11:22 PM

Minnesota Vikings WRs Jarius Wright and Jerome Simpson are expected to compete for the slot receiver job during training camp.

Footballguys view: We'd like to see more of Wright. He had a couple of good games last year, including a four catch, 95 yard performance against the Eagles in Week 15. Wright is quicker and more explosive than Simpson, and he's a much more dangerous receiver after the catch.

  Vikings | Mike Priefer suspended three games    Fri Jul 18, 08:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings special teams coordinator Mike Priefer has been suspended three games by the team for making offensive and insensitive homophobic remarks in the presence of former P Chris Kluwe. Priefer's suspension could be reduced to two games if he attends individualized anti-harassment, diversity and sexual-orientation sensitivity training.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson to catch more passes?    Thu Jul 17, 06:51 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will reportedly have some of his carries converted into catches as the team wants to use him more in space and alleviate his wear and tear.

Footballguys view: New offensive coordinator Norv Turner knows how to build a quality ground game and get the most out of his running backs. Everyone knows Peterson is a top-3 fantasy running back already, and catching more passes will just cement him near the top spot.

  Vikings | Chris Kluwe plans to sue team    Tue Jul 15, 01:36 PM

Former Minnesota Vikings P Chris Kluwe plans to sue the team over the failure to release a report investigating the conduct of an assistant coach. The team would like to resolve the dispute out of court.

  Vikings | Zach Line could emerge    Mon Jul 14, 10:20 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Zach Line could make an impact for the team this season, according to beat writer Mike Wobschall.

Footballguys view: Sure, he'll make an impact if Adrian Peterson, Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon all get hurt. Line was undrafted out of SMU in 2013 and scored a 61-yard touchdown off a pass from Matt Cassel in the Vikings first preseason game last year. He's a running back/fullback 'tweener and currently buried on the depth chart.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon could have edge    Mon Jul 14, 10:20 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon could see the field more than backup RB Matt Asiata because of his ability as a receiver and change-of-pace runner outside or between the tackles.

Footballguys view: Asiata is a plodding fullback type who lacks elusiveness and creativity to his game. McKinnon is a converted quarterback who is trying to make the switch to running back in the pros. He's elusive in the open field and has the agility to create his own space. These two will battle in training camp to be the primary backup behind Adrian Peterson.

  Vikings | Anthony Barr likely at OLB    Mon Jul 14, 10:16 AM

Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr is expected to begin training camp as an outside linebacker, but he could be moved around to utilize his athleticism.

Footballguys view: Barr is incredibly talented as a pass-rusher on the outside. He has incredible lateral agility and acceleration to the ball-carrier or passer. Barr anticipates the snap well, and he gets into the backfield in the blink of an eye. He'll need to be tougher against the run in order to be a solid all-around pro. Scouts felt there was a bit of DeMarcus Ware (Broncos) to Barr's game at UCLA.

  Vikings | Corey Wootton expected to in rotation    Thu Jul 10, 04:34 PM

Minnesota Vikings DE Corey Wootton is expected to be part of a rotation at defensive end this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Expect a lot of things like this with new head coach Mike Zimmer who has always found ways to get the most out of his players. The team is looking for interior help since they let Kevin Williams walk, so expect Wootton to get plenty of reps.

  Vikings | Jamarca Sanford could be small edge for S job    Wed Jul 9, 02:48 PM

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph studying video    Wed Jul 9, 02:50 AM

Updating a previous item, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has studied videos of past tight ends offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked with before.

Footballguys view: Everyone is excited about the Turner offense that maximized tight end fantasy value, most recently for Jordan Cameron in Cleveland last year. Rudolph has a chance to be one of the best mid-round TE picks this year, but he also had too many duds in 2012 and 2013 to feel comfortable relying on him completely out of the gate. Make sure to take a high floor #2 like Heath Miller if you grab Rudolph this year.

  Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson has high expectations    Tue Jul 8, 03:49 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has high expectations for the 2014 season, thinking he could be a top-five play maker wide receiver. 'I'm going to be a top-5 playmaker,' Patterson said. 'I'm a playmaker, I like to make plays. Like I tell them, just get the ball in my hands I feel like I'm special with it. I just like to do special things with the ball.'

Footballguys view: Patterson is creeping up draft boards and often goes in the fourth round now despite the lack of a track record of fantasy WR1/WR2 production. He is electric with the ball in his hands, so if the Vikings make the same effort to get the ball in his hands that they did with Percy Harvin when he was there, Patterson might deliver on that rising ADP.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph slims down    Tue Jul 8, 02:55 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has slimmed down this offseason, dropping about 15 pounds. 'It was more of just a focus on my diet in February and March, versus, you are out in California, you work out every day, so you feel like you can eat whatever you want,' Rudolph said. 'Nothing really changes, because you make up for it with the workouts, but when I really focused on eating lean meats, eating the salads, you see the results.'

  Vikings | OC praises QBs    Mon Jul 7, 01:06 PM

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has been very happy with QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder heading up to training camp. 'We've got a really, really good group,' he said, explaining that it won't be hard to parcel out snaps in the apparent three-headed battle. Cassel is expected to be the starter, but Turner has praised Bridgewater for his arm strength and quick learning.

Footballguys view: The identity of the starter won't change outlooks that much because the Vikings won't force Bridgewater into the lineup. If they tab him to start, that means Bridgewater give the team the best chance to win in their eyes. Greg Jennings had great chemistry with Cassel last year, so perhaps he would take a small hit, but his ADP is already very undervalued for a receiver of his caliber.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon impresses Adrian Peterson    Sat Jul 5, 10:20 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he was impressed by RB Jerick McKinnon. "He's pretty impressive and there's not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in," Peterson said. "He's been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style."

Footballguys view: We're not over the moon about McKinnon's ability to convert from a quarterback to a running back, but if he's impressing Peterson then that's a good sign. The rookie is competing with Matt Asiata to be the primary backup behind Peterson this year.

  Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson improving as a receiver    Thu Jul 3, 11:47 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson is improving as a receiver, according to QB Matt Cassell. 'I just think his route-running and his ability to recognize defense' Cassell said. 'I think that's huge for him, and any receiver, as you move forward.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are looking for the next Alshon Jeffery. That could be Patterson this year. Jeffery was a breakout player last year, and he finished his sophomore season as a top-10 fantasy wide receiver. Patterson has an incredible skill set with speed, strength and run-after-the-catch ability. He was the 38th-best fantasy WR in 2013, and he could break into the top 20 this season.

  Vikings | Jerome Felton could see playing time drop    Thu Jul 3, 07:26 PM

Minnesota Vikings FB Jerome Felton could receive decreased playing time on offense this upcoming season unless he can find a niche in several different facets of the offense.

Footballguys view: Felton's role as blocker decreased tremendously last season and with Matt Asiata playing well and rookie Jerick McKinnon looking good in OTAs and minicamps.

  Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson impressing new teammate    Thu Jun 26, 11:43 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has impressed CB Captain Munnerlyn this offseason. 'The time we played them, he was nothing like he is now,'' Munnerlyn said. 'I told him, 'The time we played you, I'm glad we caught you early.' Because if we hadn't have caught him early, he was tearing people up at the end up the year. He's really growing as a receiver, and I'm seeing it with my own two eyes.'' Munnerlyn played for the Carolina Panthers last year.

Footballguys view: The team is going to feature Patterson this year. Fantasy owners looking for the "next Alshon Jeffery" can look no further than Patterson. Like Jeffery in 2013, Patterson could take a big jump in his second year as a pro. He has a current ADP of WR21 (5.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson could be showcased    Mon Jun 23, 09:50 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings said the team plans to showcase WR Cordarrelle Patterson this season. Jennings hinted that Patterson could overtake him as the No. 1 wide receiver for the team.

Footballguys view: Message! For fantasy owners looking for the next Alshon Jeffery, we give you Patterson. Jeffery went from the 80th-best fantasy WR in 2012 as a rookie, to the 9th-best fantasy WR in 2013. Patterson could have a similar second-year spike. Last year he flashed his big-play ability, and Patterson showed that he could dominate in the Week 14 game against Baltimore with five catches for 141 yards and one touchdown. He may not break the top 10 like Jeffery did last year, but we love Patterson as a low-end WR2 with top-15 upside.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson working on pass catching    Sat Jun 21, 12:19 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he has been working on his pass catching skills, because he likely will be asked to catch more passes in offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system. The team sees Peterson as an every-down running back, so he may have to pick up some blitzes on passing downs.

Footballguys view: Peterson can do anything he sets his mind to. The team lost backup Toby Gerhart in free agency to the Jaguars, and they don't really have a change-of-pace back behind Peterson. He's once again worthy of a top-5 selection in everyone's fantasy draft.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson plans to stick around    Thu Jun 19, 12:15 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has no plans to be done playing football by the time the team opens their new stadium in 2016. His current contract runs through the 2017 season, but he's the only running back in the league with a salary cap hit of more than $10 million this year, and the team could cut him without a cap penalty after next year.

Footballguys view: Peterson has been the one reliable point on the offense for some time, even including the now-departed Percy Harvin. While he makes a ton of money, he has been worth every penny and will continue to be. Perhaps they can talk to him about redoing his contract to keep him. It would benefit him and the Vikings both to stay together.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater impressing with deep ball    Wed Jun 18, 02:26 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater's deep throws have been 'outstanding,' according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Bridgewater's deep-ball accuracy was a concern heading into the NFL Draft, but Turner said Bridgewater 'can make all the throws he needs to make.'

Footballguys view: Our Matt Waldman pointed out that Bridgewater's deep throws often came off of short-to-long reads and appeared rushed, so maybe Turner has already figured out to mitigate this issue.

  Vikings | Coach hopes to use Cordarrelle Patterson as returner    Wed Jun 18, 12:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings special teams coach Mike Priefer said he hopes WR Cordarrelle Patterson continues to be used as a kick returner this upcoming season even though he will likely have an increased role on offense.

Footballguys view: Patterson, like his predecessor Percy Harvin, is just too dangerous with the ball in his hands to deny him the opportunity to turn games by immediately answering an opposing score or starting off a half in style. Check your scoring system to see if you'll get credit for Patterson's inevitable kick return scores this year, but don't let this designation bother you. It's a sign of how good he is, not a lesser emphasis on offense.

  Vikings | Matt Cassel expected to be starter    Tue Jun 17, 03:08 PM

USA TODAY Sports' Tom Pelissero thinks it would be a shock if QB Matt Cassel isn't named the starter in training camp next month.

  Vikings | QB competition wide open    Tue Jun 17, 02:32 PM

The Minnesota Vikings' quarterback competition this offseason is a wide open battle between QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will plan on having all three passers see enough snaps in mandatory minicamp to make sure that they all have a 'legitimate opportunity' to win the starting job in training camp next month. Zimmer won't rush into a decision, and he made it clear that Cassel won't enter camp as the presumptive starter. Both Cassel and Bridgewater had more snaps than Ponder during organized team activities, and both looked sharper than Ponder.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater should win any close calls, but the definition of a close call may depend on how ready the Vikings are to start him. He is a better passer than either of his opponents, and he is going to excel on short and intermediate passes in accuracy and timing. We would give him a better chance to win this job than most would, but it is still going to be hard for him to have fantasy relevance without a great running component to his fantasy stats.

  Vikings | Jasper Brinkley expected to start    Mon Jun 16, 06:47 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Jasper Brinkley is expected to start at middle linebacker. Brinkley is healthy after dealing with a nagging groin injury last season.

Footballguys view: When healthy, Brinkley can be a two-down thumper and enforcer in the middle of the defense. He can scrape and flow quickly to the ball-carrier, and Brinkley arrives at the ball with natural violence. He struggles in coverage and it's best if he comes off the field on passing downs.

  Vikings | Not likely to release Christian Ponder but may trade him    Mon Jun 16, 02:44 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder will likely not be released by the team, but the Vikings may try and trade the quarterback before camp starts. The team recognizes it would get only a late-round draft pick, but it could save $1.8 million just by trading him.

Footballguys view: Trade him for what? Ponder would draw little interest if he was on the trade block, especially if teams are expecting him to be released. Perhaps someone would take a shot on Ponder as a backup, but we don't think teams will be falling all over themselves to add the veteran QB.

Seattle Seahawks DT Kevin Williams said the Minnesota Vikings offered him a contract this week, but he decided to sign with the Seahawks.

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson, who took a pay cut to remain with the team after some off-field issues, is likely not in line to start with leading returning WR Greg Jennings and WR Cordarrelle Patterson in the mix. Still, Simpson is happy to be back, and he had a good relationship with head coach Mike Zimmer when the two were both in the Cincinnati Bengals organization together.

Footballguys view: Given the talent in front of him, as well as a potentially increased role for tight end Kyle Rudolph, Simpson may not get many looks, and certainly not many consistent ones. Right now, he's not worth rostering.

The Minnesota Vikings signed RB Jerick McKinnon, their third-round draft selection, to his rookie deal Tuesday, June 10. Per NFL rules, all draft picks sign four-year deals. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: The former college quarterback is making the jump to running back in the pros. He's athletic and has enough speed to get to the corner. McKinnon is not that natural as a runner, and he's a bit of a project. He'll compete for a spot in the pecking order behind Adrian Peterson. Matt Asiata is likely the primary backup for the Vikings.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater fine with backup role    Fri Jun 6, 12:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater said he'd be fine with serving in a backup role in his rookie season. Bridgewater missed only three passes all day during organized team activities Thursday, June 5, and marched the team down the field during the two-minute drill. He had some first-team snaps Thursday, but QB Matt Cassel had the majority of the starting repetitions and is expected to enter training camp as the No. 1 quarterback. 'Right now, I'm just learning from Matt.' Bridgewater said. 'He's a veteran right now, and I notice the things that he's doing when he's in the huddle. I'm taking notes from him and Christian also. Those guys have had past success.'

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is going to be an excellent teammate, but don't let this fool you when it comes to his competitiveness. We still think he'll beat out Cassel early in the season, that is if he doesn't open the season as the starter.

  Vikings | Matt Asiata works with starters    Thu Jun 5, 08:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata received most of the reps with the first-team offense during organized team activities Thursday, June 5, because RB Adrian Peterson was not present for the workout. RB Jerick McKinnon also received reps with the starters.

Footballguys view: This is the primary backup to Adrian Peterson now that Toby Gerhart has moved on to Jacksonville. Asaita may not be much of a big-play threat, but he's certainly got a nose for the end zone. McKinnon is a converted college quarterback who is going to try his hand at running back in the NFL.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater sharp in practice    Thu Jun 5, 01:25 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was as sharp as he has been in practice to this point Thursday, June 5.

Footballguys view: "You hear that Mr. Cassel? That is the sound of inevitability." We know what Cassel is: an average-on-his-best-day quarterback. Bridgewater was the most pro-ready quarterback in this class and his upside is evident, his ceiling much higher. If it's even close there is no reason for the Vikings do do anything but put the rookie under center. Still, until this settles officially, Bridgewater is no more than a Qb3, though when he wins the job he could end up as a solid backup given the offense he is in.

He's got an outstanding size/speed combination and can get after the quarterback from the edge. He's more than a part-time player, and it's no surprise he's got a chance to start.
