With preseason games in full effect, we thought it would be worth taking a look at some of the best the genre has to offer and were shocked (shocked!) to find so many candidates out there. We whittled from a list of roughly two dozen legitimate contenders the following 10.
One of the iffiest positions on Minnesota’s roster is at strong safety. The question mark was big enough that the Vikings signed 12-year veteran Chris Crocker more than a week into training camp. Crocker has had to work his way back into game shape, but he wasn’t behind in the competition. That’s because he’s played in coach Mike Zimmer’s defense for several seasons with Cincinnati.
A shooting inside a downtown Minneapolis nightclub early Saturday morning sent nine people to the hospital, including a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Minneapolis Police say the shooting happened at about 1:50 a.m. at 400 Soundbar, located on the 400 block of 3rd Avenue North.
The Vikings are introducing fans to a lot of new things, including the coach, the quarterback and the stadium. A new temporary home makes for a semi-exciting pre-season opener. Friday night starts a new era in many ways.
Xavier Rhodes showcased his skills in the passing scrimmage Saturday during Minnesota Vikings training camp in Mankato, Minn. What he wants is simple: Be consistent, be good. Vikings Defensive End Brian Robison says Rhodes is a natural athlete.
Christian Ponder’s descent from first-round draft pick to third-string quarterback has been formalized, with the release of the first depth chart of the season by the Minnesota Vikings. After losing the starting job to Matt Cassel last year and watching the team draft Teddy Bridgewater, Ponder entered the final year of his rookie contract in lame-duck mode, realizing the likelihood he’ll soon be playing elsewhere.
When you share a backfield with a former MVP and an electric early-round draft pick being compared to Darren Sproles, it’s easy to fly under the radar. But Matt Asiata has never been one for the limelight anyway. “Just go out there and do your job and, you know, execute with the plays,” Asiata said. “I was just trying to get better every day.”
Cordarrelle Patterson and Captain Munnerlyn made their training camp debuts for the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday after missing the first four days with injuries. Munnerlyn, the free agent cornerback from Carolina, was activated from the physically unable to perform list.
The Minnesota Vikings signed tight end Kyle Rudolph to a $36.5 million contract. That’s a price tag that used to be reserved for top running backs. In a pass-happy NFL, Adrian Peterson could likely be the last running back standing when it comes to big contracts.
The Minnesota Vikings have hired the attorney who investigated the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal and another who played a prominent role in the fight for marriage equality to help in settlement talks with former punter Chris Kluwe. The Vikings announced on Tuesday that Ted Wells and Roberta Kaplan have been retained.
The Minnesota Vikings have placed cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, safety Andrew Sendejo and tight end Chase Ford on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp. The other player held out of the first full practice on Friday was wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who watched wearing a bucket-shaped fishing hat because of a minor foot injury. The team announced his status as day to day.
Matt Cassel has started the Minnesota Vikings training camp as the starting quarterback. As coach Mike Zimmer said again Friday, prior to the first full practice, that does not mean Cassel will automatically keep the same status for the season opener.
By Alex Darcey August is a week away, which can only mean one thing – your fantasy football draft is rapidly approaching. As a fantasy footballer, the next few weeks will be spent cramming as […]
There are a good amount of teams this season that will be looking to their quarterbacks to bring everything together to be on the winning path. Here is my list of quarterbacks that need a big 2014 season….
Adrian Peterson has arrived at training camp with a different look: a ring on his finger. The star running back reported Thursday with the rest of the Vikings to the Minnesota State University campus and confirmed he married his longtime girlfriend, Ashley Brown, just five days earlier.
Minneapolis will host the 2018 Super Bowl after a vote by owners on Tuesday rewarded the city for getting a new stadium deal.
The Vikings drafted UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr at No. 9, then traded back into the first round with Seattle at No. 32 to get Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
