Kyle Rudolph says Vikings tight ends close-knit despite battle for jobs

Kyle Rudolph, entering his fifth season, has been a Pro Bowl tight end, so you can bet his job with the Vikings is safe. But the team will have to make some decisions behind him. Rhett Ellison, in his fourth season, is considered one of the best athletes on the team. Third-year guy Chase Ford stepped in last year when Rudolph was injured and had some nice moments. Rookie MyCole Pruitt was a camp sensation until suffering an ankle injury. And  Brandon Bostick, who came over after the Packers axed him following the NFC title game fumble on a crucial onside kick, is a third-year pro. “Rhett...

Rookie cornerback Trae Waynes could be Vikings starter

Rookie cornerback Trae Waynes as a starter on opening day? “That’s what we’re aiming for,” Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards said after Thursday’s practice. But aiming and expecting are two different things. And even then you have to take what Edwards said with a grain of salt. Edwards said Waynes, the team’s first-round pick in the 2015 draft (No. 11 overall), showed definite improvement through three preseason games. “He’s gotten better week to week,” Edwards said. “First week to second, he got better at some things we asked him to get better at. And, in the...

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pionerpress.com Defensive coordinator George Edwards said Thursday the Vikings are “aiming” for rookie cornerback Trae Waynes to start the regular-season opener, but that there is still a long ways to go. Waynes hasn't started any preseason games, with veteran Terence Newman getting the call on the left side in all three. The Vikings conclude the preseason with games Saturday at Dallas and Sept. 3 at Tennessee before opening the regular season Sept. 14 at San Francisco. “That’s what we’re aiming for, that’s what we’re all working for,’’ Edwards...

Vikings wide receiver Mike Wallace ready soon to give fans the long ball

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Fans are waiting for Mike Wallace to catch a deep ball in a game from Teddy Bridgewater. The Vikings wide receiver knows that. "Yeah, I want to see one, too,'' Wallace told the Pioneer Press. Wallace was acquired last March from Miami to be a deep threat. However, he has just one catch for two yards in three preseason games. Wallace, though, said it's a bit of a quandary. Sure, he'd love to catch a long ball in a preseason game but he also said the Vikings are holding some of their plays back. "It kind […] The post Vikings wide receiver Mike...

Hodges plans to play like a starter in first game at middle linebacker

Gerald Hodges has never played middle linebacker. Not in peewee. Not in his high school days in New Jersey. And not in his four years at Linebacker U. “I never thought I’d be playing middle linebacker, either,” Hodges said. But when the Vikings’ first-string defense takes the field against the Cowboys on Saturday, Hodges will get the first start of his life at middle linebacker. The Vikings have given starts to Audie Cole and rookie Eric Kendricks at the position this preseason. But coach Mike Zimmer also wants to get a look at Hodges, who impressed as a reserve at outside linebacker...
