  Vikings | Ameer Abdullah re-signs    Mon Mar 18, 04:04 PM

Free-agent RB Ameer Abdullah (Vikings) re-signed an undisclosed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Monday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Vikings lost Latavius Murray (Saints) in free agency, so they needed depth at the position behind starter Dalvin Cook. Abdullah has failed to impress as a pro. The second-round pick (2015) out of Nebraska has plenty of speed but doesn't work well in cramped space. He played in seven games in 2018 for the Vikings, contributing mostly as a kickoff returner. That should be his same role in 2019 with a chance to get some touches on offense here and there.

Footballguys view: Rudolph has a cap hit of $7.6 million in 2019 and there is zero remaining in dead money. He lacks leverage in this situation and will likely have to play ball with the Vikings.

  Vikings | Bigger role for Laquon Treadwell?    Sun Mar 10, 04:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is expected to be more involved in the passing game under offensive advisor Gary Kubiak, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Treadwell has been a career disappointment. He had a career-high 35 receptions in 2018 and only one receiving touchdown. We won't be counting on him to do much more, but this is a storyline worth watching in camp if you play in dynasty formats.

  Vikings | Trevor Siemian's return uncertain    Sun Mar 10, 04:04 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Trevor Siemian's future with the Vikings may depend on if the team believes QB Kyle Sloter is ready to be the No. 2 quarterback, in the opinion of The Minneapolis Star Tribune's Ben Goessling.

Footballguys view: Sloter has more upside than Siemian. We'll be monitoring his progress in super deep dynasty leagues. Siemian is a decent backup quarterback who can step in and start for a couple of games if need be. There should be a market for his services.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen finished the 2018 season with 113 catches and 1,373 yards, becoming just the third undrafted player with at least 100 receptions and 1,300 yards in a season.

Footballguys view: Thielen joined Rod Smith (2000 & 2001) and Wes Welker (2009, 2011 & 2012) as the undrafted players to reach those numbers. What a find for the Vikings, and one that should continue to post strong numbers.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins called the 2018 season a disappointment and plans to 'make amends' next year.

Footballguys view: The Vikings played in the NFC Championship after the 2017 season...with Case Keenum as their quarterback. They signed Cousins to the first fully guaranteed contract in NFL history, then failed to make the playoffs. This last season was an incredible disappointment, especially given Cousins contract and the hype surrounding his signing.

The Minnesota Vikings have some interest in West Virginia QB Will Grier, according to NFL draft analyst Benjamin Allbright.

  Vikings | Anthony Barr entering big offseason    Sun Jan 27, 12:06 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr could be headed to the free-agent market this offseason if the team doesn't apply the franchise tag, but he said last week that he's ready for all possibilities. 'I'm not sure there really is a plan,' Barr said during Pro Bowl practice. 'I think it kind of dictates itself. I've done what I've done and what's going to happen is kind of out of my control. Obviously I'll have a choice, hopefully, as to where I want to go but I can't control much more than what I'm doing now.'

Footballguys view: Barr didn't make a lot of splash plays in 2018 and the Vikings don't seem eager to pay him at what the market rate would be for his services with a young core already in place and a lot of money committed to new contracts. Sheldon Richardson is also a free agent and the team needs to throw money at the offensive line. They may not tag him with other needs taking precedence.
