The Vikings are not going to pay Adrian Peterson $18 million this year, and he seems prepared to be offended by lower offers.
Adam Thielen, a pending free agent, says he proved himself in a breakout season and hopes the Vikings respond in kind.
By almost every metric, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford had the best year of his career in 2016, but a look at the opposing defenses that the veteran quarterback faced reveals that the Vikings’ schedule may have helped his numbers.
If it hasn’t happened already, somebody from the Peterson camp needs to inform Adrian that no team is going to pay him (or any running back for that matter) anything close to $18 million.
Have you ever run agility ladders? Apparently the normal ones were too simple for the Vikings running back.
The Minnesota Vikings created a need by releasing Brandon Fusco, and free agency holds different salary levels of possibilities at guard.
Having Adrian Peterson go elsewhere could open the door for the Vikings to replace him with someone more in tune with the evolution of offense in the NFL.
The former Purdue coach, who was fired last season, replaces George Stewart, who took a job with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur talked about the additions to offensive coaching staff, including a new-to-you receivers coach.
The Minnesota Vikings will meet Tuesday with cornerback K'Waun Williams, who was a promising nickelback prior to a nasty dispute over an injury that got him cut by the Cleveland Browns.
To say that the Minnesota Vikings will investigate every potential left tackle option is probably a severe understatement.
During training camp, some wondered whether wide receiver Adam Thielen would make the Minnesota Vikings’ roster considering they selected a receiver in the first round and had more proven wideouts in the group.
Charles Johnson and Teddy Bridgewater were gaining chemistry in the months before the 2016 season, but Bridgewater’s devastating knee injury forced Johnson and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings’ receiving corps to adapt to a new quarterback.
When the New York Giants released running back Rashad Jennings earlier this week, a small portion of Minnesota Vikings fans across the Twittersphere suggested the team should take a look at the eight-year pro as a potential replacement to current running back Adrian Peterson.
I think it's safe to assume that Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen would like to see the team re-sign cornerback Captain Munnerlyn this offseason.
When the Atlanta Falcons reached the Super Bowl this year, many media members and fans noticed the similarities between the Falcons’ 2015 season to the Vikings’ 2016 season.
The Vikings can quickly add up salary cap space ahead of free agency
This is the time of year when players become budget lines again as front offices assess and reassess the dollar values assigned to many players in breakable contracts.
Last offseason, the Vikings took a chance on a right tackle whose play had faded over the previous few seasons in Andre Smith. The move went over like a lead balloon.
The Minnesota Vikings have some in-house issues to address at wide receiver before looking outside at free agents.
Heading into free agency, no position is more vital for the Minnesota Vikings to fix than left tackle. There is a chance than the Vikings will try to work out a low-risk, high-reward deal with Matt Kalil, but otherwise they will need to find a plug-and-play solution.
Here are a handful of the more “serious” bits of speculation — and even these might cause your eyes to roll violently in their sockets.
The Vikings could look to lock up some of these players before March 7, when free agents are allowed to start talking to other NFL teams.
Over the past decade, the Vikings have only used the franchise tag once. That was in 2011, when they kept outside linebacker Chad Greenway from hitting the market.
Two Vikings cornerbacks are scheduled to be free agents next month, so the organization is doing its homework on others available.
If Adrian Peterson and the Vikings part ways, the running game in Minnesota is going to have a vastly different look in 2017.
If any rappers want to borrow this line, feel free: Nickel corner ain’t nothing to mess with.
The next decision the Vikings must make up front — and they might have made it already — is whether to try to bring back Matt Kalil or Andre Smith.
With Minnesota’s next Super Bowl less than 51 weeks away, Kevin Cusick is counting down the best and brightest, and the worst and darkest, from the past 51 games. Today, he ranks the Vikings’ worst performers in their quartet of Super Bowl apocalypses.
Randy Moss turned 40 on Monday and, man, did he have a lot of touchdown catches go for 40 yards or more with Minnesota Vikings and his other teams. Watch the extensive highlights here.
Today is the day that former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss turns 40.
Was there any unit more scrutinized in the 2016-17 NFL season than the Minnesota Vikings offensive line?
The Vikings may not know the prospects for Teddy Bridgewater playing in 2017 when free agency opens, so a veteran backup could be on their radar.
With all the cap questions being pondered as the Vikings release players, Sharrif Floyd has been flying under the radar, but don't expect that situation to last much longer.
As the Minnesota Vikings mull over their options with running back Adrian Peterson, one thing they consider will be the price tag of other running backs.
With Cordarrelle Patterson set to hit the market and first-round pick Laquon Treadwell struggling in Year 1, the Vikings should have their sights set on adding another playmaker to join Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.
In about 51 weeks, I'll be asked to present the opening argument for Moss. He's not my favorite person, but that doesn't matter. I do think he's worthy of being one of the few receivers not named Jerry Rice to enter the Hall on his first ballot.
The Vikings’ decision to release starting right guard Brandon Fusco on Friday not only served as a reminder of just how bad the offensive line had been in 2016, but it also eliminated the one lineman whom Rick Spielman could brag about having been right on when he used yet another late-round pick to attempt to find help at that position(s).
Calling Laquon Treadwell’s rookie season a struggle would be a pretty severe understatement. But whether he turns out to be a quality NFL player is far from decided.
The Vikings don’t have a first-round pick, but thanks to a results quirk with them and the Indianapolis Colts, the Vikings have a vested interest in the disposition of their first-round pick.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound self-proclaimed SuperFreak probably was the most unusually gifted receiver to come along in NFL history. There’s a reason he took the league by storm with 17 touchdowns as a rookie in 1998.
The Vikings began turning over the offensive line by releasing two veterans on Friday.
The Vikings, after a disappointing season that saw them squander a 5-0 start and miss the playoffs at 8-8, have informed season ticket holders that season ticket prices will stay flat for the upcoming 2017 season.
The Vikings’ offensive line purge has begun. Minnesota released guards Brandon Fusco and Mike Harris on Friday, clearing roster spots and cap space to rebuild an injury-ravaged and underperforming unit that precipitated the team’s second-half collapse in 2016.
Since leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory 14 years ago and announcing, “I’m going to Disneyland,” Brad Johnson has stayed away from the NFL’s biggest game. That might change next February.
The Minnesota Vikings won’t raise prices on existing season-ticket members in 2017.
