Ranking the Top Vikings Free Agent Targets: 10-6

Finally, we hit the top ten. Or half of it anyway. Despite the Vikings improving massively on defense, the offensive free agency market is bare enough so that all five players ranked ten to six are defensive players.

Should We Be Wary of Promised Super Bowl Riches?

If there’s anything that we can be grateful for regarding Deflategate it’s that it buried news of the annual debate over the inflated figures a Super Bowl brings to the host city. Still, this year’s host, Glenadale, Ariz., is not so happy about those numbers, and may be saying to future host cites (such as the Twin Cities in 2018), “Super Bowl buyer beware.”

Shifting Priorities: Vikings Confirm Offseason Plans Are Up In The Air

As we discussed earlier this week, everything for the Vikings offseason hinges on the status of running back Adrian Peterson. If he’s back with the team in 2015, the Vikings approach Free Agency and the draft a certain direction. If he’s gone, you go a whole different path. But none of that will be determined until Peterson’s February 6th court date comes and goes.

The Vikings $13 Million Question...

For some, the offseason is the most wonderful time of the year. With speculation running rampant, fans of teams who are not performing in this weekend’s Super Bowl are already scanning the free agency list and looking deep into the Draft Class to compile their wish list for off season acquisitions. This fun is precisely why the NFL is the juggernaut that it has become.

The NFL Played its Annual Pro Bowl—Why?

It’s the most unanticipated weekend in the NFL season: the Pro Bowl. The weekend of the best non-Super Bowl competitors and non-injured (and non-disinterested) NFL players meeting on the field of battle against each other. And despite many efforts to improve it, the contest might be better off played on a video game.

Ranking the Top Vikings Free Agent Targets: 25-21

The list rolls on and we almost hit our top twenty. Two running backs make the list—both of whom were on the verge of resurgence this year. Along with that is a souped-up version of Jasper Brinkley and two tight ends on the opposite end of the spectrum.
