Norse Code Podcast Episode 72: The Wrong Advocate

Adrian Peterson forced James into doing a podcast episode or something, so here you are (plus a mailbag that covers basics of the Zimmer defense, as well as the guard battle). More Adrian Peterson talk, but also we talk about other things. We promise. *****Download Link Here***** Episode Notes: Oh, hey it's the Contract With America The NCAA gives you your odds of playing in the NFL if you play in high school, sort of. It's 0.08 percent... but actually less given that they are using total participation and not new blood blood versus turnover. Great story from Matt Vensel (not Ben...

Vikings rookie evaluations: OT T.J. Clemmings

Part 1: Trae Waynes Part 2: Eric Kendricks Part 3: Danielle Hunter You could make a case the Vikings drafted three players in this draft with first round talent — cornerback Trae Waynes in the first, linebacker Eric Kendricks in the second and offensive lineman T.J. Clemmings in the fourth round. Clemmings was a borderline first round talent, but he slid due to medical concerns of a stress fracture in his foot. The Vikings weren’t worried about the injury and opted to draft him with the 110th overall pick. The injury concern is noteworthy, but we’ll put that off to the side for just a...

So far Wallace likes what he sees from Bridgewater, Vikings offense

Fair or not, the knock on Mike Wallace as an NFL receiver is that he has been a one-trick pony. Few, if any, wideouts can sprint down the sideline faster than Wallace, whose elite speed has defensive backs perpetually on their heels. So if this pony really only has one trick, it’s a useful one to have. Unfortunately for Wallace, his big-play ability down the field was wasted in Miami, whether it was due to the offensive schemes or quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s inability to consistently throw deep. After averaging 17.2 yards per catch in Pittsburgh, Wallace averaged 12.8 in his two seasons...

Adrian Peterson's Twitter rant includes comment saying Vikings asked him to take a pay cut

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Disgruntled Vikings running back Adrian Peterson apparently claimed in a tweet Thursday that the team at some point has asked him to take a pay cut. Peterson, who missed 15 games last season because of a child abuse incident, has $44.25 million left on his contract, including $12.75 million for 2015, but none of it is guaranteed. A day after sending a statement to ESPN about not wanting a trade but wanting his contract reworked, Peterson went on a Twitter rant. “Ok great two sided!,’’ Peterson wrote in one tweet. “Well why when one party...

Peterson rants on Twitter about his contract

It was a quiet afternoon on Twitter, so Adrian Peterson, concerned about whether the Vikings will continue to honor his contract after the 2015 season, decided to rant about his contract and how players are at the mercy of NFL teams once they have received all of their guaranteed money.
