With No Changes At Right Guard, Vikings Still Optimistic

On opening day of training camp, Mike Zimmer hinted that they may be willing to tweak the roster after they review film on the first day off. Without that happening, should the Vikings be worried at right guard? They don’t think so.

Newman's Not Old--Just Aged Like a Fine Wine

Veteran cornerback Terence Newman has been around awhile. As an offseason free agent acquisition, the 36-year old former corner is on his third team with Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, and he’s in Mankato for another go-around in the pro game. Suffice it to say, he’s brings a lot of experience to his new team.

Impact of Wilf Investment Felt On And Off The field

Say what you will about any of their other investment ventures, but when it comes to the Minnesota Vikings, The Wilf family has been anything but cheap. From bringing in free agents, to investing millions into a new stadium, Mark and Zygi Wilf have doled out cash left and right. Now, in fairness, they’ve also profited quite a bit from this team, but in a sports market where we have become eerily familiar with cheap owners, the Wilfs are not.

Hot Competition at Middle Linebacker

When Eric Kendricks was scooped up by the Minnesota Vikings with their second-round pick (45th overall) in this year’s NFL Draft, most assumed he would be handed the starting middle linebacker job. That may still happen, but right now he’s competing with Audie Cole.

Jerick McKinnon Ready to Take on Any Role

After the loss of Adrian Peterson, the question was whether or not newly converted rookie running back Jerick McKinnon would have to do too much. Now the Vikings are trying to make sure he doesn't do too little.

Offensive Line Shuffling Into Place

Who would play and start where along the Minnesota Vikings’ offensive line was one of the team’s key questions entering training camp. After a few days of workouts, we don’t have all the answers, but we are starting to get a pretty good idea of how things will shake out.

Mike Wallace—More than Just a Speedy Receiver

Everyone knows that Mike Wallace is fast. When watching him in practice, it is exciting to consider the possibilities for the Vikings offense. But the more you watch and listen to him—and learn about him—it becomes clear that he brings a lot more to the team.

Peterson is Working His Way Into the Passing Game

There is some breaking news from training camp in Mankato: Adrian Peterson is back. You probably have heard that by now, but I am here to verify that he was in the backfield with Teddy Bridgewater the first day and in addition to running through the lines, he was frequently catching passes—which may be no passing fancy.

Fans Give Peterson Warm Welcome

The first day of workouts in Mankato was a warm and humid one for the Vikings and their fans, but nothing was warmer than the reception they gave Adrian Peterson. The purple-clad legions welcomed back their favorite running back with open arms, loudly answering the next question on the AD comeback tour.

Vikings Ink Walsh to Extension

The Vikings kicked off the first full day of training camp workouts on Sunday by announcing they have signed kicker Blair Walsh to a contract extension. Walsh was heading into the final year of his rookie contract and is coming off his worst season statistically. The new deal will make him one of the highest-paid kickers in the NFL.

Vikings Already Working Through Injuries in Day 1 of Camp

Head coach Mike Zimmer held his first training camp press conference in Mankato on Sunday, and it sounded like a post-game triage report. With several players’ injury status uncertain, Zimmer gave updates—on everything from the IR to changes resulting in the team’s workouts due to a cluster of pectoral injuries.

Waiting for first-day depth chart updates? Don't worry about it

The Vikings have a lot of holes to fill and not a lot of time to do it. Will we learn about the position as we close in on the first day of practice? Yes, but not much.
