Vikings Coach Mike Zimmer Hoping His Eye Issues are in the Past

We’ve already seen around the NFL one coach this past offseason retire due to reported health issues, that being Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak, who left the team after the 2016 season and has been replaced by Vance Joseph. The Minnesota Vikings could be in a similar situation at some point in the near […] The post Vikings Coach Mike Zimmer Hoping His Eye Issues are in the Past appeared first on Vikings Gab.

Jaleel Johnson Signs Rookie Contract

He becomes the third Vikings’ draftee to sign In the cult classic film Airheads, when the members of the band the movie is centered around reveal the name of their band is “The Lone Rangers,” it’s pointed out that there’s three of them. . .they’re not exactly lone. In the case of the Minnesota Vikings, since it was reported that wide receiver Rodney Adams “went rogue” to sign his rookie contract with the team, two more draftees have put pen to paper as well. I’m guessing that means they’re not exactly “rogue.” Now it's official! Thank you to the Minnesota Vikings! ...

Doctor Breaks Down Teddy Bridgewater Video

Doctor Breaks Down Teddy Bridgewater Video

Dr. David Chao says that injury won’t be a career ender We all know that the video that the Minnesota Vikings released of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on the field with his teammates on Tuesday started quite the buzz through the purple fan community. With updates on Bridgewater’s progress having been infrequent since his injury last August, it came as quite the surprise to see even a slow-motion video of #5 dropping back to pass in a “live action” situation. Dr. David Chao, who goes by the handle ProFootballDoc on the Twitter machine, has an article on the San Diego...

Ifeadi Odenigbo Signs Rookie Contract

Ifeadi Odenigbo Signs Rookie Contract

This “going rogue” thing is apparently catching on. After wide receiver Rodney Adams signed his rookie contract with the Minnesota Vikings, becoming the first member of Minnesota’s draft class to do so, there was word on the Twitter machine that Adams had “gone rogue” to sign his deal and that the NFLPA still wasn’t happy with the language in the contracts. Well, now it appears that the whole going rogue thing might be catching on in the land of the purple. The Vikings have reported that defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo became the second member of the team’s 2017 draft class to...

Rodney Adams Signs Rookie Contract

He’s the first of the Vikings’ 11 draftees to sign UPDATE: Well, we might have our answer. It appears that Adams may have “gone rogue” in signing his deal. Indications from agents/PA is #Vikings' dispute with language in rookie contract hasn't been solved. They feel Adams went rogue by signing.— Chad Graff (@ChadGraff) May 25, 2017 Yesterday, we brought to your attention the story about the NFLPA advising the Minnesota Vikings’ group of draftees not to sign the contracts that they had been offered because of some language in the contracts that they disagreed with.

Former Viking Michael Bennett Sentenced To Five Years In Prison

Former Viking Michael Bennett Sentenced To Five Years In Prison

He’s headed back to the big house. On a day when we move on to a new look, we get a bit of a blast from the past with a name that a lot of Minnesota Vikings fans probably haven’t thought of in a while. Former Vikings’ running back Michael Bennett was sentenced to five years in prison last night after pleading guilty to felony charges of burglary, identity theft and attempted theft from an elderly adult exceeding $100,000. According to the San Jose Mercury-News: Bennett was arrested in 2015 after the parents of his then-girlfriend discovered a loan had been taken out against their...

Hey Teddy! Don’t Ya Wanna Come Out For Vikings OTAs?

He was back on the field throwing passes at Winter Park today. Well, we were all set for a relatively easy, lazy day on the first day of Organized Team Activities for the Minnesota Vikings. Then, their social media folks decided to drop this on us. Hey Teddy! https://t.co/5oYidcHyWQ pic.twitter.com/IxRQgbwuIa— Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) May 23, 2017 What’s that?

Peter King: Dalvin Cook Will Be A Top 5 Running Back By Halloween

Peter King: Dalvin Cook Will Be A Top 5 Running Back By Halloween

It’s a bold prediction, Cotton. We’ll see how it works out for him. It’s nice to hear people say nice things about the Minnesota Vikings, and when you’re to the point of the offseason where basically nothing’s happening, it gives us something to talk about. Peter King of the Monday Morning Quarterback over at Sports Illustrated has put together his early Power Rankings, and he has the purple sneaking into the top half of the rankings at #16. Much of what King has to say about the team isn’t terribly surprising, but there is one tidbit at the end of what he has to say that might...

Mike Zimmer To Miss OTAs Following Eighth Eye Surgery

He’s being ordered to take time off Minnesota Vikings’ head coach Mike Zimmer continues to have surgeries on his right eye, and the most recent one is going to cause him to be away from the team for part of their offseason program. Ben Goessling of ESPN (among others) is reporting that Zimmer is going to miss the Vikings’ Organized Team Activities, which start this week, following the eight surgery he’s had on his eye since November. This surgery, which was performed this past Wednesday, removed an oil bubble from his eye and replaced it with a gas bubble in hopes of helping it...

Vikings Position Battle: Wide Receiver

Vikings Position Battle: Wide Receiver

Wide Receiver In the past the Vikings have kept 6 wide-receivers on their roster, which seems likely to continue this year as well. The top two spots on the depth chart at wide receiver are pretty well spoken for by Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, although it would be hard to say at this point which is #1 and which is #2. But that third wide receiver spot is up for grabs - along with probably 4, 5 & 6. The Battle for #3 The 3rd spot is important as it can lead to a number of reps in 3WR sets, and most likely will come down to a battle between Laquon Treadwell and Michael Floyd. I give...

Dead Tree Media Draft Review: Stacy Coley

We take a look at the first of Minnesota’s four seventh-round picks in this year’s draft. We’re getting to the end of the Dead Tree Media draft review for this year, as we’re finally into the Minnesota Vikings’ picks in the seventh round.

Coley was the second wide receiver that the Vikings selected on draft weekend, having selected South Florida receiver Rodney Adams in the fifth round.

Happy 90th Birthday, Bud Grant!

The greatest coach in Minnesota Vikings’ history hits the big 9-0 today. Today, the greatest head coach in the history of the Minnesota Vikings (and one of the greatest in NFL history) has reached a milestone birthday. Bud Grant, who led the Vikings to all four of their Super Bowl appearances and might still be the greatest icon in Vikings history, turns 90 years old today. He’s fresh off of what he’s said will be his last ever garage sale, and has told Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that he plans on celebrating the big 9-0 with. . .Chinese food. Because why not,...

But, even with as much of an impact as he made on the field this past year, on Monday he made an off-the-field contribution that will do even more. Kendricks and his brother Mychal, a linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles, presented a check for $20,000 to The Sheridan Story. The Sheridan Story is an organization that fights childhood hunger in the Twin Cities area. The organization gives children a parcel of...
