Dennis Green is Vikings' 2018 Ring of Honor inductee

The day after former Vikings coach Dennis Green died from a heart attack in July 2016, the team formally opened U.S. Bank Stadium — a building chief operating officer Kevin Warren said might not be there if not for Green’s hand in guiding the Vikings’ current ownership group. Warren recalled on July 28, 2016 how Green had called him back in 2004 to inform him Vikings owner Red McCombs was thinking about selling the team and suggest Warren put together a group to buy it. Less than a year later, the Wilf family purchased the Vikings from McCombs for $600 million. “But for that phone...

With Mike Hughes around, Marcus Sherels could have to fight to make Vikings' roster

There was a time when the annual exercise of figuring out who would bump undrafted free agent Marcus Sherels off the Vikings’ roster was a rite of training camp. Sherels, the thinking went, was too short, too one-dimensional and simply too expendable to keep on the roster.

49ers banking on a breakout season from Jerick McKinnon

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to turn things around this season and at the very least, make the NFC West a bit more competitive. While I don’t see them giving the Los Angeles Rams a run for their money at the top of the division, there have been some significant improvements as far as their running game goes. In the offseason, San Francisco signed Jerick McKinnon to a four-year, $30 million contract.
