Vikings finally sign a draft pick: Fifth-rounder Rodney Adams

The Vikings have finally signed one of their 11 draft picks. The first one to put pen to paper was fifth-round pick Rodney Adams, a wide receiver who will also be in the mix at kickoff returner. Adams has a great backstory, which I wrote about earlier this month. The Vikings, who quickly signed all of their draft picks in 2015 and 2016, have encountered resistance this year from the NFLPA and player agents about some of the language in their rookie contracts, though they reportedly aren’t the only team dealing with this sort of issue. Perhaps the signing of Adams will open the floodgates....

Don't overlook Paul Molitor when dishing out praise for the Twins

So much has changed for the Twins in 2017 compared to 2016 that it might be hard to remember some of the talking points that dominated the discussion mere months ago. We tend to have short-term memories when a team that was 25-54 on July 1 last season is 25-18 on May 25 this season. Much has been made of the Twins’ defensive improvement, Miguel Sano’s offensive dominance, Ervin Santana’s pitching brilliance and Jose Berrios’ sudden emergence (among other story lines). But let’s not overlook manager Paul Molitor in this equation. Molitor, remember, is working as a rare “lame...

Vikings evaluating a handful of cornerbacks to fill important nickel role

For just the second time on Wednesday, NFL rules allowed second-year cornerback Mackensie Alexander to line up across from receiver Stefon Diggs during Vikings practice. Football is just getting started at Winter Park. As are the many competitions we’ll continuing updating throughout the summer. One of the more intriguing and important roles left open by free agency falls in the middle of the defense. Captain Munnerlyn provided an underrated service for three seasons in Minnesota as the nickel cornerback, tasked with defending smaller, quicker receivers with no help from a sideline to...

NBA Rumors: NY Knicks’ Derrick Rose To Minnesota Timberwolves In Free Agency?

NBA Rumors: NY Knicks’ Derrick Rose To Minnesota Timberwolves In Free Agency?

There are new NBA rumors that suggest the New York Knicks’ Derrick Rose could end up with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Rose is going to become a free agent for the first time in his career this coming summer and could be reunited with his former Chicago Bulls coach. He’ll be coming off season-ending surgery due to a meniscus tear he suffered in his left knee. His most recent season was another disappointing one for the former league MVP, but a move to the Timberwolves could give him a fresh start playing alongside some of the rising stars in the league including Andrew Wiggins and Karl...
