Jennings says the Vikings 'all want' Peterson back

Head coach Mike Zimmer and General Manager Rick Spielman have said since the season ended that the Vikings would like to have suspended running back Adrian Peterson back in 2015. Players publicly voiced support for Peterson all season long, too, saying they would welcome him back. But on Friday, veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings took things a step further in a radio interview. “I don’t know if he’ll be back. I can’t answer that question,” Jennings said in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. “But what I do know is that if he does come back, he’d be accepted with open arms. As...

Vikings offseason snapshot: the special-teamers

Over the next two weeks, we will take a position-by-position look at where the Vikings stand heading into the offseason after their 7-9 season in 2014. Today, we conclude this series with special teams. Highlighted by the big plays of rookie kickoff returner Cordarrelle Patterson, the Vikings had one of the NFL’s most explosive special-teams units in 2013. Patterson averaged a league-high 32.4 yards per kickoff return as he took a pair of kickoffs to the house. Marcus Sherels ranked second in the league on punt returns with a 15.2-yard average, and he scored on one of those, too. Kicker...

Vikings offseason snapshot: the defensive line

Over the next two weeks, we will take a position-by-position look at where the Vikings stand heading into the offseason after their 7-9 season in 2014. Today, we get in the trenches with the defensive line. One of the first acts of business of the Mike Zimmer era was overhauling the defensive line. The Vikings let defensive tackle Kevin Williams and defensive end Jared Allen walk in free agency, they added nose tackle Linval Joseph in free agency and they re-signed defensive end Everson Griffen to a big contract. When the season started, the Vikings had three new starters on the defensive...

Bevell: Trading Harvin was a must-make decision for Seahawks

Carroll comes to you when you’re 3-2 and being written off as a defending Super Bowl champion. He tells you the best way to get better is to unload one of the league’s most athletically gifted and versatile O’s. Bevell, the former Vikings offensive...

If Mick Tingelhoff finally makes the Hall of Fame, would Jerry Kramer become the top seniors' candidate?

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com GLENDALE, Ariz. _ One overlooked offensive lineman from the 1960s finally could get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend in Mick Tingelhoff? Could that pave the way for another overlooked lineman from the decade to at last make it in Jerry Kramer? Tingelhoff, a center who played for the Vikings from 1962-78 while getting all five of his first-team All-Pro nods in the 1960s, is a good bet to get in Saturday as a Seniors Committee finalist. If that happens, many believe Kramer, a Green Bay guard who was five times All-Pro in […] The post...
