New chapter for Vikings stadium awaits after suite dustup

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) An uncertain future awaits the Minnesota Vikings' new stadium after a dustup over the oversight authority's use of luxury suites culminated in the exit of two top officials.

Closing the door on Peterson could open another one to something better at this point

On his 14th touch as an NFL player, a 22-year-old Adrian Peterson scored the first of his 102 professional touchdowns. It was a screen pass from Tarvaris Jackson midway through the fourth quarter of a tight game with the Atlanta Falcons at the Metrodome on Sept. 9, 2007. It was a simple, yet perfect play call by coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. The Vikings led 10-3 and Peterson, the rookie first-round draft pick, was chewing up close to 6 yards per carry. Atlanta defenders were playing the run, so why not put Peterson out in space and throw him the ball? The...

The Vikings can quickly add up salary cap space ahead of free agency

This is the time of year when players become budget lines again as front offices assess and reassess the dollar values assigned to many players in breakable contracts. The Vikings gained about $5 million against next year’s salary cap with last week’s release of Brandon Fusco and Mike Harris, beginning needed rebuilding efforts along the offensive line. But the major moves that could more than double the Vikings’ projected $21.4 million in space, per OverTheCap.com, have yet to come. Should the Vikings exercise an option, Adrian Peterson would earn nearly $10 million more than any...

Reports: Adrian Peterson could play for every NFL team next year

We’re less than a month away from the Vikings’ deadline for deciding whether to keep Adrian Peterson at his current salary or letting the soon-to-be 32-year-old running back hit the open market (with the chance, of course, of trying to keep him at a reduced salary). The probability that the Vikings will choose the latter option is high. And that means in this post-Super Bowl, pre-free agency NFL vacuum, speculation is running rampant as to where Peterson might wind up if his days in purple are done. If you look at Twitter, online comments and other forums long enough (note: I suggest you...

Full list of Vikings' 2017 free agents

The Vikings have 18 players who are set to become free agents when the new league year begins on March 9. Among those free agents are a few former first-round picks and several starters from the 2016 season. Fourteen of them are unrestricted. Two are restricted and two are exclusive rights free agents, meaning the Vikings can keep them if they want. The Vikings could look to lock up some of these players before March 7, when free agents are allowed to start talking to other NFL teams. For our projection of which of these free agents stick around, click here. Matt Asiata, RB,...

Tagging season starts today, but the Vikings aren't expected to use theirs

Today is the first day that NFL teams can use the franchise tag to secure the services of one of their pending free agents for the 2017 season. The Vikings, per usual, aren’t expected to use their tag this offseason. Over the past decade, the Vikings have only used the franchise once. That was in 2011, when they kept outside linebacker Chad Greenway from hitting the market. They, of course, then hammered out a new deal. The main reason why in recent years the Vikings, with Rick Spielman running the front office and Rob Brzezinski leading the negotiations with player agents, have not had to...

Vikings have expressed interest in ex-Browns cornerback K'Waun Williams

Two Vikings cornerbacks are scheduled to be free agents next month, so the organization is doing its homework on others available. One of those cornerbacks includes ex-Browns cornerback K’Waun Williams, a league source confirmed. However, the 25-year-old Williams might not be available for a visit to Minnesota as he’s currently in Detroit visiting the Lions with a trip to the Jets on deck. Williams, a 2014 undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh, manned the slot for two seasons with the Browns before he was released last summer after a reported disagreement over how injured his ankle was....
