Undrafted free-agent RB A.J. Rose (Kentucky) announced that he agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings Saturday, May 1.

  Vikings | Minnesota picks Kellen Mond    Fri Apr 30, 09:37 PM

Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond was selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 66th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Mond is a player who reminds many in the scouting community of former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He's an athletic quarterback with a good arm. Mond does not throw with anticipation and is more of a 'pure sight' thrower. He'll work as a developmental quarterback behind Kirk Cousins.

  Vikings | Ameer Abdullah back to Vikings    Wed Mar 24, 12:29 PM

Free-agent RB Ameer Abdullah (Vikings) agreed to an undisclosed deal Wednesday, March 24, to return to the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: The Vikings lost Mike Boone to the Broncos in free agency, so they needed to secure a no.3 running back. Abdullah is quick and gets to top speed in a hurry. He's not the receiving threat that Boone was and is not a lock for the 53-man roster. Don't be surprised if the Vikings add a running back late in the draft to compete behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison.
