  Vikings | MyCole Pruitt could have sizeable role    Fri May 22, 10:04 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE MyCole Pruitt was praised for his versatility and ability to create mismatches by general manager Rick Spielman, and Pruitt could be the No. 2 tight end on the depth chart behind TE Kyle Rudolph as a rookie.

  Vikings | Mike Zimmer talks Adrian Peterson    Fri May 22, 09:42 AM

Updating an ongoing story, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains in pursuit of being traded or receiving a new contract and remains away from the organization during voluntary workouts. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN Radio he has a target date in mind of when he thinks Peterson will return to the team, but Zimmer did not give the specific date.

Footballguys view: That target date could be the start of training camp. Yes, Peterson would miss some mandatory workouts if he doesn't show up until then but the two sides are trying to patch things up. The Vikings hold all the cards here, and it's looking more and more like Peterson is going to stay put in Minnesota.

  Vikings | Blair Walsh contract talks    Thu May 21, 06:33 PM

Minnesota Vikings PK Blair Walsh said there has been some communication between the team and his agent regarding a contract extension, but nothing has been finalized.

  Vikings | Norv Turner opening up offense    Sun May 17, 10:39 PM

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has opened up the playbook to give receivers more chances to make explosive plays, head coach Mike Zimmer said at rookie minicamp.

Footballguys view: We believe in Turner as an offensive coordinator. We also believe in second-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. It's a good sign that Bridgewater is ready for an expanded playbook, and the Vikings have added weapons this year to the passing game like WR Mike Wallace. They could have a more robust passing game than some think in 2015.

  Vikings | Coach happy with Cordarrelle Patterson    Thu May 14, 01:25 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been impressive during offseason workouts, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. 'He's really done well,' Zimmer said. 'He's running routes good; he's working hard. So we just need him to continue to do those things and continue to keep getting consistent and keep improving. I've been impressed with the things that he's done.'

Footballguys view: Good news here. There are only a few players with the natural talent that Patterson has. Unfortunately, his pro game has been marred by inconsistencies and a lack of production. Potential is a great word, but eventually Patterson is going to have to start producing at a level he's capable of. We love quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and he will certainly help this Vikings passing game. Patterson is worth a late-round flier in re-draft leagues. His current ADP is WR63 (13.01) in 12-team PPR leagues, but his potential is that of a WR3/flex.

  Vikings | Trae Waynes signed    Thu May 7, 02:54 PM

Minnesota Vikings first-round draft choice CB Trae Waynes signed his four-year deal with the team Thursday, May 7, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Waynes should be a great addition to an increasingly tough defense. He'll help shore up an already stout secondary (seventh against the pass per NFL.com) and make this a very dangerous group to face. We like pairing him up with Xavier Rhodes to give the team an athletic cornerback duo.

  Vikings | Matt Kalil has both knees scoped    Thu May 7, 08:28 AM

Minnesota Vikings OT Matt Kalil (knees) underwent arthroscopic surgery on both knees in January and received injections designed to help patients deal with joint pain in March, two people with knowledge of the procedures told USA TODAY Sports. Kalil has had knee troubles the last two seasons.

Footballguys view: Yikes! It's been a long couple of seasons for the former first-round draft pick, who has seen a decline in the quality of play since his rookie year. Could the knees have been a huge factor and if so, will this fix it? The Vikings drafted T.J. Clemmings in the middle rounds, a guy with first-round talent but a stress fracture in his foot that caused him to fall in the draft. Clemmings is likely a future starter at right tackle, and it would be great for the Vikings if Kalil can get healthy and get back on track.

  Vikings | Mike Wallace makes bold claim    Tue May 5, 08:12 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace proclaimed himself the fastest player in the NFL Tuesday, May 5, per the Pioneer Press. 'If somebody feels foggy about that, we can [race]. I'm never going to back down from competition,'' said Wallace.

Footballguys view: Awesome, he's fast....too bad he's not making the same claims about being the best wide receiver in the league. Wallace failed to connect with QB Ryan Tannehill during his time with the Dolphins. We'll see if he can establish better chemistry with second-year QB Teddy Bridgewater in Minnesota.

  Vikings | Two options picked up    Mon May 4, 11:24 AM

Minnesota Vikings OT Matt Kalil and FS Harrison Smith had their fifth-year options for 2016 exercised Monday, May 4.

Footballguys view: Kalil will continue to give the Vikings a strong presence on the offensive line with the extra year added to his deal. Smith has developed into a quality player for the Vikings and it's no surprise they didn't want him to hit free agency.

  Vikings | MyCole Pruitt selected    Sat May 2, 02:02 PM

Southern Illinois TE MyCole Pruitt was selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 143rd overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: He'll be stuck behind Kyle Rudoph barring a big injury and used mostly as a blocker in the offense.


  Vikings | Eric Kendricks selected 45th overall     Fri May 1, 08:15 PM

University of California-Los Angeles LB Eric Kendricks was selected 45th overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Anthony Barr said he wanted to play with Kendricks at the pro level so the former UCLA pair was reunited in Minnesota. Kendricks is a great player inside and he and Barr will flourish in this defense.


  Vikings | Adrian Peterson's agent seeks new deal    Fri May 1, 11:34 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may be changing course in his pursuit of a trade as his agent, Ben Dogra, said he'd like the team to sign Peterson to an extension. 'One of the things that I appreciate with the Vikings is their resolve to say 'we're not trading him,'' Dogra told USA TODAY Sports. 'That tells me they value him not only as a football player, but what he's done for the organization. 'I actually, as an agent, not only appreciate it - I accept it. But actions speak louder than words. If that's going to happen, and you want to keep him, then show him a commitment to make him retire as a Viking. And I haven't had that solution.' Peterson has three years and $46 million left on his contract, but none of it is guaranteed.

Footballguys view: We all knew this was at least part of the plan with the 'no respect' nonsense coming out of Peterson's camp all offseason. The amount of money left on his contract and the amount of years make this request ludicrous though - how much more can you give a 30-year old running back with three years and $46 million left on his contract. Maybe they're trying to force that trade after all. Honestly, Peterson is a RB1 for fantasy regardless of landing spot, so in some ways this is all academic for out purposes. But in the macro, real-world NFL aspect of things, Peterson continues to show a stunning lack of awareness.

  Vikings | Trae Waynes selected 11th overall    Thu Apr 30, 09:20 PM

Michigan State CB Trae Waynes was selected 11th overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30.

Footballguys view: This is becoming a great defense. Waynes is a long, tough corner who can lock down receivers. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is coming for the NFC North.


  Vikings | No change to Adrian Peterson's status    Thu Apr 30, 02:06 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is still expected to remain with the Vikings even though former NFL WR Cris Carter indicated Peterson could be traded in the near future.

Footballguys view: This could all change by the end of the weekend. The Vikings have been driving a hard bargain on price, but the reality is, that first round pick isn't coming. So as the draft goes by, Peterson's price might drop. Peterson would be successful almost where he goes so he's likely to have plenty of fantasy value regardless of his jersey color.

  Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson looking to improve    Tue Apr 28, 11:35 AM

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson said he plans to focus on improving his route running this offseason. 'Just route running,' Patterson said. 'Growing up, I was always athletic and could just do anything. I'm in the NFL now, so I just have to focus on my craft and just work at route running, getting in and getting out of breaks and stuff like that.'

Footballguys view: Patterson has all the natural talent in the world. What he lacks is focus and precision on the field. We love his upside, but he's got to start proving that he can improve at the little things in order to take full advantage of his natural skill set.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson likely to stay in purple    Tue Apr 28, 08:50 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 80% likely to remain with the Vikings, in the opinion of ESPN insider Chris Mortensen.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. The Vikings hold all the cards here. They have Peterson under contract for the next three years. If some other team wants him bad enough, they'll have to surrender a Herschel Walker-sized deal to get him away from the Vikings.

  Vikings | GM praises Cordarrelle Patterson    Sun Apr 26, 11:21 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has dedicated himself to becoming a better receiver, according to general manager Rick Spielman. 'I think Cordarrelle has really grown up a lot,' Spielman said. 'I know what he has done this offseason dedicating himself to being the best receiver he can be, and how serious he is taking that, we're very excited about the future with Cordarrelle.'

Footballguys view: We'll believe it when we see it. Patterson has amazing athleticism, strength and speed...but he has yet to put it all together. The skill set is there for him to be a dominant player, and now it's time for Patterson to start playing up to his potential.

  Vikings | MIN wants to keep Adrian Peterson    Wed Apr 22, 02:13 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not expected to be traded by the Vikings unless the team is overwhelmed by an offer from another team, according to a source. The Vikings are confident that time will help their relationship with Peterson. A source said a recent report that stated the Vikings are looking for a first-round pick and a starting cornerback in a trade for Peterson is not accurate, which may suggest the Vikings would be looking for even more in a trade.

Footballguys view: This matches the mentality of a team that sees Peterson as still an elite RB option that they can get on board without any issues for this season. This could be posturing to extract the largest price for Peterson in a trade, as GM Rick Spielman has taken a gambler's approach to trade negotiations in the past.

  Vikings | Six teams in mix for Adrian Peterson    Tue Apr 21, 01:44 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains a candidate to be traded, and a source close to the situation believes that if he isn't traded before or during the 2015 NFL Draft next week, that he will remain in Minnesota. The Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the mix for Peterson, and the source didn't include the Oakland Raiders, who had been mentioned in previous reports as a possible candidate. Peterson is under contract for three years and $43.25 million, but none of the money is guaranteed. The Vikes may be hard-pressed to receive a late first-round pick for Peterson, because of his age (30).

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Peterson is going to attract a ton of attention if he's actually on the trade block. The Vikings hold all the power here as Peterson is under contract with them for the next three years. We'll see if any of these teams listed (or any surprise team) can pry Peterson away.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson not attending workouts    Mon Apr 20, 01:37 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not in attendance for the start of the team's offseason workout program Monday, April 20, according to league sources. However, Peterson hasn't attended this stage of the team's offseason before.

Footballguys view: Minnesota wasn't expecting Peterson to show, according to a source. His $250,000 workout bonus is tied to his participation for organized team activities (OTAs) and the mandatory minicamp in June.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson has offseason bonuses    Mon Apr 20, 08:57 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has a $250,000 offseason bonus in his contract for participating in all mini-camps, all organized team activities and reporting to training camp on time.

Footballguys view: The Peterson saga continues. The first day that has implications on that bonus is May 26 when OTAs begin.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson may not work out    Fri Apr 17, 12:28 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said earlier this week that he's not sure if he'll participate in the team's offseason program. Minnesota is set to start their offseason workouts Monday, April 20, with a mandatory minicamp in June. Peterson can now participate in all team activities after being reinstated from the commissioner's exempt list Friday, April 17.

Footballguys view: If Peterson wants out of Minnesota, then he won't show up to these activities. Now that he's free to play in 2015, the question remains where is he going to be? Regardless of a new team, same team, whatever team, Peterson has the talent and ability to be a first-round pick in fantasy leagues and an RB1 for your fantasy team.

  Vikings | No more punishment for Adrian Peterson    Thu Apr 16, 02:51 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not receive any further suspension after he is reinstated from the commissioner's exempt list, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Assuming this is true, you can have the green light to draft him in fantasy leagues. Whether he is with the Vikings, Cowboys (Cardinals?) or elsewhere, he will put up another strong year of production. He's a top-10 fantasy option.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson to be reinstated    Thu Apr 16, 02:13 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has been informed that he will be reinstated from the commissioner exempt list starting Friday, April 17.

Footballguys view: Now the question is, where will he play? The Vikings want him back (so they say) but he's still upset about how they treated him. We'll ignore the irony there for a minute, and instead reiterate that he remains a top ten talent for fantasy no matter the team. Now we'll see if the Dallas Cowboys will pony up for his services. Trading for Peterson would likely take a king's ransom.

  Vikings | Kyle Emanuel drawing interest    Tue Apr 14, 02:38 AM

North Dakota State LB Kyle Emanuel is drawing 'clear interest' from the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Emanuel should be drawing interest from many teams. He's a lunch-pail guy with a non-stop motor. Emanuel has good speed and closing burst to get to the quarterback from the outside. He needs to learn more pass-rushing moves because in college he mostly relied on the "run and bend" technique. Emanuel could also help out on special teams in addition to being a part-time pass-rusher. He's a late-round pick in the draft.

  Vikings | Will meet with Jalen Collins    Sat Apr 11, 10:07 AM

Louisiana State CB Jalen Collins is scheduled to meet with the Minnesota Vikings before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Collins has the upside to be a shutdown corner in the NFL. He's got ideal height, weight, speed but his technique needs work after only 10 games started during his collegiate career.

  Vikings | DeVante Parker visiting with Vikes    Wed Apr 8, 01:45 PM

Louisville WR DeVante Parker is visiting with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, April 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We'd be absolutely giddy if Parker winds up with the Vikings. He was a star at Louisville catching passes from Teddy Bridgewater--the current franchise quarterback for the Vikings. Parker has the speed to stretch the field, and he does a good job tracking passes over his shoulder.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson unlikely for suspension    Wed Apr 8, 01:26 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 'highly unlikely' to face more suspension from the league when he's finally off the Commissioner's Exempt List, according to a source. Peterson's next concern is clearing the way for his full return to the field this fall. 'Peterson wants to have a completely clean slate by the draft,' NFL Network analyst Ian Rapoport said.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Peterson was suspended. However, we have no idea where he's going to play at this time. Peterson could just stay with the Vikings, but the relationship has been fractured. He could be on the trade block, but the Vikings would be expecting a king's ransom in return.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson to meet with league    Mon Apr 6, 10:31 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is scheduled to meet with NFL officials this week to discuss his reinstatement for the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: We'll see Peterson back in action this season...we just don't know where yet. Peterson's contract is controlled by the Vikings, and they don't seem content to release him. Some team could trade for Peterson, but it would likely be a hefty price tag to do so. He is eligible to be reinstated April 15.

  Vikings | Caesar Rayford signs    Thu Apr 2, 11:52 AM

Free-agent DE Caesar Rayford (Lions) signed an undisclosed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, April 2.

Footballguys view: Caesar Rayford caught the team's eye at the Veteran Combine. Prior to that he had played in the CFL and Arena League. Rayford last played in the NFL in 2013 for Dallas and was cut by that team prior to the start of last season. He's likely just a camp body for the Vikings to kick the tires on.

Free-agent QB Mike Kafka (Buccaneers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, April 1, according to his agent.

  Vikings | Have shown interest in Brandon Spikes    Sun Mar 29, 09:49 AM

Free-agent LB Brandon Spikes (Bills) has received interest from the Minnesota Vikings, but the two sides have not been able to agree on financial terms.

Footballguys view: Spikes is still a two-down thumper who arrives at the ball with natural violence. The Bills are interested in bringing him back, but the price needs to be right. If he's getting interest from the Vikings, then Spikes' price tag could go higher than what Buffalo is willing to pay.

Free-agent OG Justin Blalock (Falcons) has not received any interest from the Minnesota Vikings at this point.

  Vikings | Michael Crabtree not an option for MIN    Sun Mar 29, 09:45 AM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is not a target for the Minnesota Vikings at this time.

Footballguys view: Crabtree isn't getting that much interest on the open market. The Vikings have revamped their WR corps when they traded for Mike Wallace earlier this year. They'll use Wallace and Charles X. Johnson as outside receivers with Jarius Wright and Cordarrelle Patterson competing for WR3 duties.

Former Washington CB Marcus Peters is on a pre-draft visit with the Minnesota Vikings Friday, March 27, according to sources.

  Vikings | Two players released    Thu Mar 26, 04:11 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Justin Anderson and OG Jordan McCray were cut Thursday, March 26.

Footballguys view: Well when you have Babatunde Aiyegbusi you have to make room somewhere! Well the Polish Phenom was likely not the reason either was cut. McCray was a practice squad level guy who has bounced around the NFL a little while. Anderson signed with the Giants after last year's draft, got hurt and then cut, but was brought back when Jon Beason got hurt. The Giants cut him late in November and he ended up with the Vikings, but he was never active.

  Vikings | Sign Babatunde Aiyegbusi    Thu Mar 26, 04:09 PM

The Minnesota Vikings signed free-agent OT Babatunde Aiyegbusi to an undisclosed contract Thursday, March 26.

Footballguys view: The Vikings need some offensive line depth and Aiyegbusi is an intriguing addition. Aiyegbusi never played a down of college football and has spent the last few years playing in the Polish American Football League and the Vikings (and a few other teams) are intrigued by his 6'8", 351 pound frame. The Vikings were impressed with how quickly he understood and executed drills and plays, but know he is tremendously raw. If he makes the team, expect a lot of practice squad time.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson discontent in Minnesota?    Wed Mar 25, 04:30 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back in Minnesota, but the question is if Peterson wants to come back. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn't believe Peterson would be a disruption if he did return to the Vikings. 'I want him to want to be [in Minnesota], like I want all of my players to want to be there. I've been in situations before that I thought were not the best situations.'

Footballguys view: Back and forth and back and forth. Peterson wants out according to his agent, but the Vikings are not budging. Zimmer added that he thinks his football relationship with Peterson is a good one in its current state. We'll see something give sometime....stay tuned.

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will not be traded this offseason, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. 'No, no chance whatsoever,' Zimmer said.

Quite frankly, we need to do a good job of figuring out how we can use him better and he needs to understand where he's supposed to be, the routes and everything.'

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is disgruntled and reportedly wants out of Minnesota, but head coach Mike Zimmer said the team has no plans to trade him.

Footballguys view: That's the plan right now, but if Peterson is unhappy the team might be persuaded to change their mind. What else could change their mind is a couple of premium picks. Peterson is still one of the best backs in the game, and there would be more than a few teams interested in adding the superstar back.
