  Vikings | No workout for Blake Bortles    Tue Apr 22, 12:59 PM

The Minnesota Vikings are not scheduled to work out Central Florida QB Blake Bortles. The team has seen enough of Bortles when they attended his pro day. The team also met privately with Bortles during that trip.

Footballguys view: The Vikings might be hoping Bortles falls past all four of the QB-needy teams ahead of them, and with the league having a phobia about missing on quarterbacks in the first, he just might.

  Vikings | Lamin Barrow visits    Wed Apr 16, 11:47 PM

Louisiana State LB Lamin Barrow visited with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, April 16, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Barrow was a tackling machine at LSU. He should be able to start as a weakside linebacker at the pro level. Barrow knows how to quickly diagnose plays, and he's known as a sound tackler. He also has the athleticism to cover.

  Vikings | Still not extension talks with Kyle Rudolph    Wed Apr 16, 02:37 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph said the team still have not approached him about a possible contract extension. He said he would like to stay with the team but it will be their decision.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the two sides can come together on an agreement before Rudolph hits free agency next year. He's an important part of the offense and a good red-zone threat.

  Vikings | Getting extended look at Teddy Bridgewater    Tue Apr 15, 01:18 PM

The Minnesota Vikings visited with Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater Monday, April 14, and he remains with the team Tuesday, April 15. He also worked out for the team over the weekend.

Footballguys view: The thought of Bridgewater falling to the end of the first round just doesn't make sense. He's this year's most accurate quarterback who knows how to run a pro-style offense. The Vikings would be wise to add Bridgewater in the first round if he's available when they pick at 8th overall.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph update    Tue Apr 15, 10:36 AM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) said he has been running since mid-February and has experienced no foot problems.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Vikings and Rudolph here. In order for the offense to run on all cylinders, the team needs Rudolph to be healthy and out on the field. He's an effective playmaker who will give the quarterback a security blanket. Rudolph is also a quality target in the red zone.

  Vikings | Khalil Mack to visit Thursday    Mon Apr 14, 02:34 PM

The Minnesota Vikings will host a visit for Buffalo LB Khalil Mack Thursday, April 17.

Footballguys view: It would be a bit of a surprise if Mack falls to 8th overall. Mack is an elite pass-rusher with multiple moves to get after the quarterback. He can also cover in the open field and is known as a sound tackler. There are teams who like Mack better than DE Jadaveon Clowney (South Carolina).

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson could see more pass plays    Sat Apr 12, 06:16 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be used more in passing plays this season with the departure of RB Toby Gerhart.

Footballguys view: More Peterson is nothing but a good thing. We'll see Peterson as the top draft pick in most fantasy drafts in 2014.

  Vikings | To work out Teddy Bridgewater    Fri Apr 11, 05:49 PM

The Minnesota Vikings will work out Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater Saturday, April 12.

Footballguys view: The Vikings are looking for a franchise quarterback and Bridgewater would be a fantastic addition in the first round. If added, he would compete with Christian Ponder for the starting job. Bridgewater is more accuract and is better at pre-snap reads than Ponder.

  Vikings | Working out Jimmy Garoppolo    Fri Apr 11, 12:48 PM

The Minnesota Vikings are conducting a private workout with Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo Friday, April 11, according to an ESPN source.

Footballguys view: Garoppolo has seen his draft stock rise since the Shrine Game and Senior Bowl earlier this year. He has a lightning-quick release, and Garoppolo is athletic enough to keep plays alive with his feet. The young quarterback needs to show the ability to throw to the middle of the field accurately. He usually had simple reads that were close to the line of scrimmage. Some think he could be a late first- or early second-round pick.

  Vikings | Terrence West to visit    Fri Apr 11, 12:02 AM

The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to meet with Towson RB Terrence West before the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: West is a bigger back who can run in the 4.5s. The small school prospect could be a second- or third-round pick in the draft. The Vikings are looking for running back help after losing Toby Gerhart (Jaguars) in free agency.

The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to meet with UCLA LB Anthony Barr Monday, April 14, and Tuesday, April 15.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson injury update    Wed Apr 9, 03:31 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin) is close to full strength and plans on participating in offseason workouts when he does get back to full strength. There is no timetable for his return.

Footballguys view: Peterson doesn't follow timetables....timetables follow him. He's going to be 100 percent ready to go by the start of the regular season. Peterson will once again be a top fantasy pick.

  Vikings | GM, coach attend LSU Pro Day    Wed Apr 9, 01:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer are attending the Louisiana State Pro Day Wednesday, April 9.

Footballguys view: The Vikings could be looking at QB Zach Mettenberger. He may be a target of the Vikings in the second round. Mettenberger is a strong-armed quarterback who can stretch the field vertically. He is not athletic enough to make plays with his feet, and he suffers from inconsistent accuracy problems.

  Vikings | To meet with Zach Mettenberger    Tue Apr 8, 05:57 PM

The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to meet with Louisiana State QB Zach Mettenberger Wednesday, April 9.

Footballguys view: If the Vikings pass on a quarterback in the first round, then Mettenberger would make a lot of sense for them at the top of the second. Mettenberger has a rocket arm and is your classic pocket passer. He struggles under duress, and don't ask him to make many plays with his feet. The Vikings are looking for an upgrade over Christian Ponder.

  Vikings | Sign Lestar Jean    Tue Apr 8, 03:21 PM

The Minnesota Vikings signed WR Lestar Jean (Texans) Tuesday, April 8. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jean is a size/speed receiver who was a sleeper for the Texans a few years back, but failed to pan out. He could add a vertical dimension in three-plus wide receiver sets if Jerome Simpson doesn't seem up to the task.

  Vikings | To host Terrance West    Mon Apr 7, 11:44 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have scheduled a visit with Towson RB Terrance West.

Footballguys view: They brought back Matt Asiata to be the primary backup behind Adrian Peterson, but adding West would make a lot of sense. Toby Gerhart moved on in free agency to Jacksonville, so the Vikings have a need at the running back position.

  Vikings | Matt Asiata re-signed    Mon Apr 7, 05:22 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed exclusive rights free-agent RB Matt Asiata. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Toby Gerhart moved on in free agency to the Jacksonville Jaguars. This makes Asiata the primary backup behind Adrian Peterson at this time. Last year, fantasy owners benefited from plugging Asiata into the lineup when Peterson was out. He's certainly got a nose for the end zone and runs with a hard-charging style.

  Vikings | No talks with Kyle Rudolph    Fri Apr 4, 12:08 AM

The Minnesota Vikings have not had any contract extension talks with TE Kyle Rudolph this offseason even though Rudolph would like to sign an extension. Rudolph will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason.

Footballguys view: As we get closer to the season, the two sides should begin working towards an extension. Rudolph is a talented player who can be a relief valve receiver for any Vikings QB.

  Vikings | Coach indicates flags with Johnny Manziel    Mon Mar 31, 05:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said the team conducted a private meeting with Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel Friday, March 28, and some flags came up during their conversations with him. 'We asked him all kinds of questions. ...There are some flags that come up,' Zimmer said. 'All of the things that happened out in Los Angeles, the commercials and all that stuff; the position of quarterback in the NFL is such an important position and the reason these guys need to be a totally football-minded guy is the pressure of the position and being the face of an NFL team and doing everything right. That's the thing you want to know about him - will he be into work early every single day? Will be the last to leave? Will he be the guy that is working the hardest to get better?'

Footballguys view: The NFL world seems split on Manziel. Some think he could revolutionize the position, while others think his game won't translate to the pro level. One thing is clear; Manziel will have to go to a team that is willing to build a system around his unique skill set.

  Vikings | Mike Zimmer reacts to Johnny Manziel pro day    Thu Mar 27, 02:40 PM

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer called Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel's pro day workout a "sideshow." "It was different," Zimmer said. "It was a different workout."

Footballguys view: That doesn't sound as impressed as everyone else was. Perhaps he was impressed but didn't care for the atmosphere which comes with an individual pro day. Pro days are just a miniscule fraction of a percent when it comes to draft analysis, so it's always a bit of a circus.

  Vikings | Scheduled to meet with Johnny Manziel    Thu Mar 27, 02:11 PM

The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to meet with Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel Friday, March 28.

Footballguys view: It's interesting considering how much head coach Mike Zimmer seemed to be turned off by the circus atmosphere. That said, the Vikings could very well have a shot at any--or all--of the top three quarterbacks, so they will do their due diligence. Manziel would be an exciting fit behind the Vikings offensive line with the weapons that are in the offense.

  Vikings | Matt Asiata takes aim at No. 2 job    Mon Mar 24, 09:16 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata is working to serve as the primary backup to RB Adrian Peterson now that RB Toby Gerhart (Jaguars) is gone. The team elected to keep the exclusive rights free agent, signing him to a one-year, $570,000 contract this month.

Footballguys view: General manager Rick Spielman said the team is looking for depth at running back, but the team hasn't displayed an urgency to address the spot the first two weeks of free agency.

  Vikings | LaRod Stephens-Howling an option    Sat Mar 22, 12:43 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have expressed interest in free-agent RB LaRod Stephens-Howling (Steelers).

Footballguys view: The Vikings lost Toby Gerhart to the Jaguars in free agency, so they're looking for more depth behind Adrian Peterson. Stephens-Howling could help them as a change-of-pace back and receiver out of the backfield.
