Free-agent DE Caesar Rayford says he's joining Vikings

Free-agent defensive end Caesar Rayford announced on Facebook that he is joining the Vikings, though if Rayford has indeed signed, it has yet to pop up on the NFL’s official transaction wire. After spending the 2014 season in the Arena Football League and the Canadian Football League, Rayford, 29, was one of 105 players invited to the NFL’s inaugural veteran’s combine last month. Rayford, who is listed at 6-foot-7 and 285 pounds, went undrafted out of Washington in 2008. He played in the CFL and AFL before signing with the Colts in 2013. He ended up playing for the Cowboys that season...

TFD: Looks like ex-Viking WR Greg Jennings is about to find a new team

When the Vikings traded for Mike Wallace a few weeks back, people immediately wondered what would happen with Greg Jennings. The answer came quickly, when the team announced it was releasing the veteran WR, who was well-liked in his two years here but didn’t produce like a top-end receiver. The parting was amicable, and Jennings even released a statement thanking the team and fans. It seems as though Jennings is about to find gainful new employment. He tweeted this on Tuesday: Really glad to be wrapping this #FreeAgency process up! Glad it’s coming to an end. — Greg Jennings...

New Vikings OT Aiyegbusi is tall, but not an anomaly

There has been a lot of curiosity in Vikingsland about Babatunde Aiyegbusi, the offensive tackle the team signed last week. The Polish product, who I wrote about in today’s newspaper, is 6-foot-9. His height is certainly noteworthy, but height-wise, “Babs” is far from an anomaly in today’s NFL. Because I have too much time on my hands at the moment and too few hobbies, I decided to scan through every NFL roster to see how many players are listed at 6-foot-8 or taller. I counted 29 of them, including Aiyegbusi. The majority of these tall men are offensive tackles or defensive ends,...

Greenway says he's happy to be back with Vikings

Chad Greenway had to sacrifice a sizable chunk of his salary to remain with the Vikings in 2015, but the veteran outside linebacker is happy he and the organization were able to find middle ground. “I’ve always wanted to be a Viking and finish my career here and obviously it’s important to the Wilfs as well,” Greenway said Monday morning in a radio interview with KFAN FM 100.3. Greenway was supposed to make $7 million in the final year of the deal he signed in 2011. But after agreeing to take a pay cut, he has a new base salary of $3.4 million with $1 million guaranteed. He can make...

Vikings cornerback Captain Munnerlyn vows to beat out Terence Newman for starting job

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn welcomes Terence Newman joining the Vikings. He just doesn’t believe Newman will beat him out. Newman, who will be 37 when the regular season starts, signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract Friday with the Vikings, with $750,000 guaranteed. When asked earlier in the week where Newman would play, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, “left cornerback,’’ which is where Munnerlyn started all 16 games last season. “I’m ready for the competition,’’ Munnerlyn told the Pioneer Press on Saturday. “I’m an athlete,...

Vikings LB Chad Greenway takes $3 million cut to stay

Linebacker Chad Greenway has cut his salary by $3 million to remain with the Vikings.

Greenway agrees to pay cut to remain with Vikings

Chad Greenway will be back with the Vikings in 2015. The Vikings and the veteran outside linebacker have agreed to a restructured contract, according to a league source. Greenway has a new base salary of $3.4 million with $1 million guaranteed. He can make up to $4 million through bonuses, including a $500,000 roster bonus, per the source. Greenway was originally slated to make $7 million in 2015, the final year of his deal. But it seemed unlikely the Vikings would let the 32-year-old play at that salary, one of the highest on the team. At the end of the season, Greenway, the team’s 2006...
