With limited practice time, Zimmer moves OTAs with necessary focus, urgency

Being organized and focused has never been more important for an NFL head coach. Back in the good, old days for coaches — and bad, old days for players — practice time in full pads runneth over. And players rarely  changed teams, so continuity ranneth over as well. In 1960, the year before the Vikings arrived in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys were the league’s expansion team. They trained at St. Olaf College here in Minnesota. They escaped the Texas heat, but not the grind of what was then a typical NFL training camp. Dallas’ rookies reported to camp July 3. There were six preseason...

Vikings defensive tackle B.J. Dubose tore his ACL at Wednesday's OTA

Second-year Vikings defensive lineman B.J. Dubose tore his ACL during today’s organized team activity at Winter Park, according to a league source, and is expected to miss the entire 2016 season. Dubose suffered the knee injury this morning during a team drill, crumpling to the turf inside the team’s indoor practice facility and moments later limping away to the athletic trainer’s room. Dubose was a sixth-round pick last spring. He spent most of the 2015 season on the practice squad before being promoted to the 53-man roster for the playoff loss to the Seahawks. He did not play in that...

Walsh: 'I thought I had one of my better years'

It’s not quite the same as a January wild-card game at TCF Bank Stadium, but, for the record, Vikings kicker Blair Walsh made all five field goal attempts during the team portion of the OTA session that was held in the team’s indoor facility this morning. In his first attempts during a team portion of an OTA session, Walsh was straight down the middle from 30, 33, 35, 37 and 40 yards. Afterward, he spoke to reporters who were eager to know whether he’s still stuck mentally on the 27-yarder he yanked way left with 22 seconds left in the 10-9 wild-card playoff loss to Seattle back on that...

Prepare for 'this is Teddy Bridgewater's prove-it year' to become national narrative

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is about to enter his third season in the NFL. The first two were uneven, though they were marked by a a team improvement from seven victories his rookie year to 11 wins and a division title last season. As such, it’s only natural that there will be plenty of discussion of Bridgewater and whether he can take another step forward going into 2016. It started months ago — you can even find good evidence of it on the Vikings’ web site. But that was before the Vikings’ biggest moves in free agency involved their offensive line … and before they spent a...

Vikings sign defensive tackle Travis Raciti, waive running back Brandon Ross

The Vikings announced today that they have signed defensive tackle Travis Raciti, who spent last season on the Eagles’ practice squad. The 24-year-old California native originally signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent last spring. He started 45 of his 49 games at San Jose State, where he was a two-time all-conference selection. To make room on the roster for Raciti, the Vikings waived running back Brandon Ross, who had signed as a rookie free agent earlier this month.

Updating our projected Vikings depth chart with OTAs set to ramp up

It has been exactly two months since we took our first crack at projecting the Vikings depth charts (offense here and defense here). Since then, there was something called the draft, adding eight picks to the roster and a handful of undrafted  rookie free agents. So with the third phase of organized team activities, which actually resembles a real practice, set to begin Tuesday, so update our projected depth chart with the newcomers. QB: Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill, Taylor Heinicke, Joel Stave Comments: Barring a major upset, Hill will be Bridgewater’s top backup again and Heinicke must...
