  Vikings | NFLPA against Adrian Peterson counseling    Tue Jan 27, 07:40 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was directed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to meet with a league-assigned psychiatrist following Peterson's suspension. The National Football League Players Association is now crying foul on the commissioner's mandated counseling, arguing that Goodell did not have the power to enforce such a stipulation. The NFLPA said the terms of Peterson's suspension violate the limits of Goodell's power under the collective bargaining agreement.

Footballguys view: The NFLPA is standing up for their player here as Commissioner Goodell may have overstepped his bounds. Counseling could certainly help Peterson from a PR standpoint as his image was damaged in 2014. It could also help him just be a better person. Counseling could be court-ordered, but Goodell is not judge and jury here.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater bulking up    Tue Jan 27, 10:07 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is working on bulking up this offseason. 'We know where he's going to be, what he's going to be doing, in terms of lifting,' offensive coordinator Norv Turner said. 'He's never going to be a real big man, but he's going to be a guy that eventually is 220-225. He played most of the year about 212, so continue to work and get stronger and put on a few more pounds, and he will gradually, but that strength, I don't want people to think I'm talking about getting his arm stronger, no.'

Footballguys view: Part of the reason why Bridgewater fell to the end of the first round last year (besides the ridiculous pro day overanalysis) was his lack of size. Bridgewater had a strong rookie year where he gained plenty of experience and was constantly learning from his mistakes. We're excited about his upside--as we always have been--because he's smart and accurate. Bridgewater can be one of the best in the game if he continues to grow and develop as a passer.

  Vikings | Jalil Carter signs Futures deal    Thu Jan 15, 12:10 PM

Free-agent WR Jalil Carter (Rams) was signed to a Reserve/Future contract by the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: The Vikings are pretty solid in their starting receivers with Charles Johnson, Greg Jennings and Jarius Wright--Cordarrelle Patterson as well if he can kick himself into gear this offseason. They have little depth beyond that group though, so they will likely add a few people like Carter to see if they can find a few role players.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson wanted by Minnesota    Thu Jan 15, 12:39 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back by general manager Rick Spielman once he is eligible to apply for reinstatement April 15. 'I don't know if there's a team in the NFL that wouldn't want Adrian Peterson on the football team,' Spielman said Wednesday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: We'll see how this plays out. We know the players have expressed a desire to have him back - or at least some have publicly - and of course from a talent standpoint, who wouldn't? The question is how the public will react, how the larger media world (both football and non-football) react and whether the firestorm would be too much.

  Vikings | OC has confidence in Teddy Bridgewater    Fri Jan 2, 07:23 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has the necessary arm strength to succeed in the NFL, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. "Teddy has all the key characteristics to be an upper echelon quarterback in this league," Turner said. "He really impressed me with how he played this year and how he continued to improve. He's got great vision, he's got great presence in the pocket. He doesn't get rattled, he's extremely accurate. All the things you're looking for in a quarterback."

Footballguys view: There's multiple reasons why Turner has confidence in Bridgewater. The rookie is smart and accurate, plus he's able to make plays with his arm or his legs under pressure. We love the upside of Bridgewater in the pros.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater will remain starter    Wed Dec 31, 03:32 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater will start at quarterback heading into next season, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "I think we're fortunate in the fact that we learned an awful lot about Teddy this year and the progress that he's made," Zimmer said. "He's still got to get a lot better to get to where we want to go. He's got to improve in the offseason and things like that, but yeah, I think it will allow the focus to move to another spot, other spots, not one spot, but other spots, we've got a lot of spots we've got to get better at. I think that helps solidify probably the number one question that was going on at this point in time last year."

Footballguys view: Why is this even a question mark? He looked the best out of any rookie QB to start this year. Bridgewater is smart and accurate...and that goes a long way at the pro level. As he gains more experience, Bridgewater should keep improving.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson wanted back by head coach    Tue Dec 30, 02:23 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will be wanted back by head coach Mike Zimmer when Peterson's suspension ends next year. 'I think he's a good person. I think obviously he's a great running back and if it works out that way and things work out and he gets his life in order... then I will be in his corner whenever the decision is made [to bring him back or not].'

Footballguys view: Peterson was told earlier this month that he would serve a two-game suspension next year for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. We'll see if 2015 can be the beginning of his comeback in the pros.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is warming up and giving the Vikings a lot of hope for a brighter future. He could also be a terrific daily fantasy play for Week 17.

  Vikings | Jerome Felton to opt out of contract    Sat Dec 27, 07:06 AM

Minnesota Vikings FB Jerome Felton has opted out of his contract and elected free agency. He has not ruled out re-signing with the Vikings at a salary less than his $2.45 million this season.

Footballguys view: The team isn't using him as much, so he's likely to be looking elsewhere, which is likely fine for the Vikings. After helping Adrian Peterson to a record setting year in 2012, but has been unimpressive since. Most teams have decreased the amount of snaps they use a fullback on (if they do it at all) so his options could be limited.

  Vikings | Henry Josey signed    Wed Dec 24, 10:09 AM

The Minnesota Vikings signed RB Henry Josey off the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Footballguys view: Josey was originally signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He was cut by the Eagles at the end of training camp, and Josey has been on the Jaguars practice squad since then. A compact runner (5'8" 195 pounds), Josey can make defenders miss in the open field. During his last year in college at Missouri, Josey rushed for over 1,100 yards with 16 touchdowns. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should monitor him.

  Vikings | Release Ben Tate    Tue Dec 23, 06:19 PM

The Minnesota Vikings released RB Ben Tate Tuesday, Dec. 23.

Footballguys view: This makes two teams that have released Tate in 2014. He was originally signed in free agency earlier this year by the Cleveland Browns. Tate failed to impress in Cleveland, and they decided to let him go. The Vikings picked him up, but Tate barely saw the field in Minnesota. A free agent, we can't imagine many teams being interested in the veteran back.

Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr (knee) will have surgery on his knee, and head coach Mike Zimmer said Friday, Dec. 19, that Barr's season is over.

Footballguys view: An unfortunate way for the talented rookie's season to end. Barr graded out well as a pass-rusher and run-defender for the Vikings this year, and we are incredibly excited about his future upside in the pros. In 12 games, Barr had 70 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles.

  Vikings | Limited practice for Matt Asiata    Wed Dec 17, 05:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Asiata makes for an interesting RB2 with upside this week. The Vikings play the Dolphins in Week 16, and Miami has been getting gashed on the ground. Asiata is a tough inside runner, and he's surprisingly used more as a receiver than some think.
