The Minnesota Vikings hold the 11th overall pick in tonight's NFL Draft. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the first pick, and the Tennessee Titans hold the second spot. I'm glad we scored Teddy Bridgewater last year, taking the Vikes out of the desperate situation of needing to land a quarterback. So let's get down to business.
The NFL released the 2015 schedules this evening, and the path is tough for the Minnesota Vikings right out of the gate; with a Week 1 Monday night matchup against the 49er's in California on September 14th. Here's the calendar:
I just heard on the evening news that Adrain Peterson is said to have 'trust issues' with the Minnesota Vikings stemming from the allegations and legal proceedings surrounding the abuse of his then 4-year-old son. Might I suggest fewer whippings?
The NFL announced this afternoon that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be reinstated effective this Friday -- meaning he will be able to return and fully participate in team activities. Whether he ever wears a Vikings jersey still remains unclear.
The Minnesota Vikings have traded quarterback Matt Cassel to the Buffalo Bills, in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick. Cassel has played 10 seasons in the NFL, and arrived in Minnesota in 2013. He was the starter at the beginning of last season before injuring his foot.
Federal Judge David Doty has overturned Adrian Peterson's suspension by the NFL. The judge ruled that the NFL's arbitrator overstepped his authority in suspending Peterson, and has sent the case back to the league. Where this leaves the relationship between Peterson and the Vikings is unclear.
With the Super Bowl approaching, the brainiacs at WalletHub took a look at the 142 biggest cites in America and determined which were the best cities for football fans. Green Bay finished in the top spot. Las Vegas finished last. Minneapolis came in at #10. Here's the full list.
According to a story by Bleacher Report, Adrian Peterson has requested that the Minnesota Vikings trade him to the Dallas Cowboys. Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman reportedly has no interest in trading Peterson to any team. And Adrian felt 'uneasy' about playing in Minnesota before this? #NotGonnaHelp
Running back Adrian Peterson has told ESPN that he feels 'uneasy' about a return to Minnesota and playing for the Vikings. He says he didn't like how the fans & team turned on him during his troubles. Give me a break AP. Unfortunately, some thought whipping your kid was a bad thing.
Ok, I know I'm a biased Minnesota Vikings fan, and that Adrian Peterson has struggled through some tough times of late, but really? He's not among the top-ten running backs of all-time? Sorry, but gotta call bul#$^it.
