  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater running in pool    Mon Mar 27, 07:44 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has been able to run in a pool and take part on other non-weight bearing activities but there is still no timetable for his return, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: Nobody knows if Bridgewater will ever be able to play again. The devastating leg injury he suffered has seriously knocked his career off track.

  Vikings | More on Adam Thielen's deal    Thu Mar 23, 11:43 AM

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen signed a four-year deal worth $19.246 million with $6.746 million in the first year.

Footballguys view: Thielen is a great story. An undrafted free agent who stuck around long enough to get his shot, and then play well enough to earn a starting spot, Thielen is a solid receiver a Vikings quarterback can rely on.

  Vikings | Rod Streater has Vikings' interest    Thu Mar 23, 08:45 AM

Free-agent WR Rod Streater (49ers) is drawing interest from the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We don't see much happening here if he signs. The Vikings have a pretty good crop of receivers, and Streater would just be left out in the cold.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray undergoes surgery    Wed Mar 22, 06:54 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) underwent ankle surgery Wednesday, March 22, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Bad news for a player just added in free agency. He'll be ready for training camp, but Murray won't be able to practice in OTAs or minicamp. The Vikings knew Murray would need surgery before they signed him.

  Vikings | Minnesota showing interest in Malik McDowell    Wed Mar 22, 03:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer worked out Michigan State DT Malik McDowell at his pro day Wednesday, March 22.

Footballguys view: McDowell is likely to be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He's got the length and strength to attack from the edge, where the potential to be special is there. McDowell didn't put up the expected numbers in 2016 as he dealt with an ankle injury and there's concern that he might be a bit lazy.

  Vikings | MIN had limited interest in Andre Holmes    Sun Mar 19, 08:51 AM

The Minnesota Vikings reportedly expressed interest in WR Andre Holmes before he signed a three-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. However, discussions between the two sides never became serious.

Footballguys view: The Vikings lost Cordarrelle Patterson (Raiders) in free agency, so they're looking for depth at the position.

  Vikings | Short stay for Latavius Murray?    Sat Mar 18, 10:49 PM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray's deal is for one year with two option years, and the minimum he could make is $3.4 million. The full $5.15 million that he's owed next season becomes guaranteed on the third day of the 2018 league year.

Footballguys view: The Vikings have given Murray basically a "prove it" deal. If he succeeds for them in 2017, then they should be more than willing to pick up his option the next season.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson won't return to Vikes    Thu Mar 16, 05:18 PM

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) will not be re-signed by the Minnesota Vikings, according to general manager Rick Spielman.

Footballguys view: Once Latavius Murray showed up, this was expected. How much does Peterson have left in the tank? And how much is he asking for? We would go with 'not much' and 'too much,' respectively.

  Vikings | More on Datone Jones' contract    Thu Mar 16, 04:29 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Datone Jones' one-year deal includes a $1.6 million signing bonus. It also comes with a $1.5 million base salary, up to $500,000 in weekly roster bonuses and a $150,000 workout bonus. Jones can also earn up to $1.25 million based on incentives involved with sacks and playing time.

Footballguys view: The Vikings pick off a Packer. Jones is a decent linebacker with some upside, but we'll see what kind of time he gets in Mike Zimmer's defense. We like what Zimmer could do with Jones.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray terms    Thu Mar 16, 11:23 AM

Updating an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray received a three-year, $15 million deal, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It seems like a reasonable deal but the details aren't out yet, so we'll wait before giving it the "Black Eyed Joe Seal of Approval." We do like the fit, though Murray might struggle a bit behind a line which isn't nearly as good as the one in Oakland.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray boards Vikings' ship    Thu Mar 16, 03:08 AM

Free-agent RB Latavius Murray (Raiders) agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, March 16. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but ESPN's Field Yates reports the contract can be voided after one season.

Footballguys view: This is a pretty good move, as Murray ran the ball well in Oakland, averaging 4.0 yards per carry for both of the last two years. On the other hand, it's easy to forget the Raiders offensive line was quietly one of the best in the NFL. Even with improvements, the Vikings line isn't in the same class, so while we like the addition, we don't trust he will stay as consistent until we see how the line looks.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen staying with Minnesota    Wed Mar 15, 03:46 PM

Minnesota Vikings restricted free-agent WR Adam Thielen agreed to a three-year deal with the Vikings Wednesday, March 15, according to a source.

  Vikings | Jared Cook to visit Vikings    Tue Mar 14, 04:22 PM

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) will meet with the Minnesota Vikings following his visit with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. That is unless Cook signs a deal in Seattle.

Footballguys view: Just like in Seattle, Cook would be a backup if he signed with the Vikings. Kyle Rudolph is their lead tight end, but Cook could get on the field when they go with 2-TE sets.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray visiting Minnesota    Tue Mar 14, 02:42 PM

Free-agent RB Latavius Murray (Raiders) is visiting the Minnesota Vikings Tuesday, March 14.

Footballguys view: Murray is a big-bodied all-purpose back who could carry a large load for any team that adds him. The Vikings have moved on from Adrian Peterson and could use a player like Murray.

  Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson wants to re-sign    Sun Mar 12, 09:58 PM

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings) posted a series of messages on Snapchat Saturday, March 11, indicating that he wants to re-sign with the Vikings.

Footballguys view: Patterson has tested the open market, and he's not found much interest. He has failed to live up to his potential as a receiver, and a change of scenery could do him some good. However, it sounds like a return to the Vikings is now likely.

  Vikings | No deal for Eddie Lacy in Minnesota    Sun Mar 12, 08:46 PM

Free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (Packers) left his meeting with the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, March 12, without agreeing to a deal.

Footballguys view: Lacy has a little bit of interest on the open market, but the Vikings aren't going to rush into any decision. Teams have to feel comfortable that Lacy can stay healthy and keep his weight under control in order for him to get a new deal.

  Vikings | Eddie Lacy meets with MIN Sunday    Sun Mar 12, 06:23 PM

Free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (Packers) met with the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Lacy started his pro career out with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, and it's been all downhill since then. If healthy and in shape (two things he's had trouble with), Lacy could be a lead back for any team that adds him.

  Vikings | Door open for Matt Asiata return    Sat Mar 11, 01:31 PM

Free-agent RB Matt Asiata (Vikings) is looking at other teams and waiting for some of the top free-agent running backs to sign, but he has not ruled out a return to the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: We're surprised Buffalo hasn't wanted another fullback after signing two already this offseason...(we're being sarcastic of course). Asiata has not found a ton of interest for his services out there, so returning to the Vikings might be his best bet.

Detroit Lions impending free-agent OT Riley Reiff agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, March 9, according to a source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A much needed upgrade for the Vikings, Reiff is likely to take over for the departed Matt Kalil on the left side. Anything would be better than what the Vikings have had, but Reiff is just a start. They have a long way to go.

  Vikings | Nick Foles may be option for Vikings    Wed Mar 8, 07:02 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Nick Foles could receive interest from the Minnesota Vikings if the Chiefs do not pick up his $6.75 million option, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Vikings have Sam Bradford as their starter, and he's under contract for one more year. After that, the quarterback of the Vikings is a great unknown. Teddy Bridgewater is likely to miss all of 2017 recovering from his horrific leg injury, and the team would have to pick up his fifth-year option if he's to stick around in 2018.

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson is not expected to be back with the Vikings in 2017, in the opinion of the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Matt Vensel.

Footballguys view: Patterson needs a fresh start. He's incredibly gifted athletically, but he's been a disappointment as a receiver for the Vikings. Perhaps with a new team he can finally start playing up to his potential as a wideout.

  Vikings | Matt Kalil healthy    Mon Mar 6, 11:08 AM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent OT Matt Kalil (hip) is 100 percent after surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right hip, according to his father, Frank Kalil. Kalil said that Matt dropped down to 280 pounds following surgery but has returned to his playing weight of 315 pounds.

Footballguys view: That's good news for Kalil as he hits free agency. The tackle market isn't great, so Kalil will get a bump in value just because of the lack of talent at the position.

  Vikings | Matt Asiata to test market    Sat Mar 4, 03:07 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Matt Asiata plans to test the free-agent market and there is a decent chance that he does not re-sign with the Vikings, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Asiata is entering his age-30 season and the RB class in the 2017 draft is quite deep. Asiata managed just 3.32 YPC on his 121 carries in 2016, finishing with 402 yards. He also added 32 catches for 263 yards.
