Vikings rookie evaluations: LB Eric Kendricks

We’ve already reviewed the Vikings first round pick, cornerback Trae Waynes, during our “Truth or Hype” series prior to the NFL Draft. We’ll now focus on the other Vikings players either selected or signed as undrafted free agents this year. So we’ll start with their second round pick out of UCLA, linebacker Eric Kendricks. It’s a nice story that he’ll be reunited with former UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr in the Twin Cities, but how will he fare in the NFL with his physical limitations? Strengths: Kendricks finished as UCLA’s all-time leader with 480 tackles, compiling over...

Vikings star running back expected to attend Adrian Peterson Day on June 13 in Palestine, Texas hometown

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Adrian Peterson’s first public appearance since a child-abuse incident surfaced last September could be next month in his hometown of Palestine, Texas. Adrian Peterson Day is set for June 13 in Palestine. Kenneth Abrams, a family friend, told the Pioneer Press on Tuesday that Peterson is expected to attend the event that has been held annually since 2007. “Adrian will be there, that’s the plan,’’ Abrams said. “It will be business as usual. We’re a small town (of about 18,000) and everybody supports him, but I think it will be bigger...

Vikings OTAs open without Peterson present

We wrote over the weekend that running back Adrian Peterson was not planning to show up for the start of voluntary organized team activities. So it should be no surprise that he was not at Winter Park today. The show went on, though, as it did when Peterson skipped voluntary workouts in the past. And judging by the photos tweeted out by Vikings staffers, head coach Mike Zimmer wasn’t fazed by today’s soggy weather. Unfortunately, today’s OTA workout was not open to us media types. We are allowed to be out there tomorrow, though, so look for updates then. And if we spot Peterson...

Peterson not expected to participate in Vikings' voluntary workouts this week

Running back Adrian Peterson will not be in attendance Tuesday when the Vikings begin their first week of voluntary organized team activities at Winter Park. Peterson instead will remain in Texas, according to multiple reports. Peterson is not required to attend the voluntary workouts, but the $250,000 workout bonus in his contract is tied to participation in spring workouts. The first time that Peterson — and the rest of his Vikings teammates — are required to show up at Winter Park is next month’s mandatory minicamp. If he opts to skip those workouts, the Vikings can choose to fine...

Vikings' Adrian Peterson to miss start of organized team activities

Running back Adrian Peterson won't be at Vikings organized team activities when they begin Tuesday, a source told the Pioneer Press on Sunday.

Source: Disgruntled running back Adrian Peterson won't be at Vikings OTAs on Tuesday

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Running back Adrian Peterson won't be at Vikings organized team activities when they begin Tuesday, a source told the Pioneer Press on Sunday. Peterson, who missed 15 games last season because of a child-abuse incident, has been disgruntled because he has not believed some in the Minnesota organization did enough to get him back on the field last fall. The Vikings have said they will not trade Peterson, who has three years left on his contract. Peterson has not been with the Vikings during all of spring workouts, however the start of OTAs is...

Access Vikings mailbag: Which rookie will have the best season?

@MasterStrib Who will have a better first year in the NFL for the Vikings: Waynes, Kendricks or Clemmings? #VikingsST — Judd Zulgad’s Hoodie (@JZHoodie) May 19, 2015 Good question, and I’d go with linebacker Eric Kendricks. He’s undersized at six feet and 232 pounds, but Kendricks might be the best bet among the three players listed. The UCLA product has great instincts and has the capability to become a three-down middle linebacker. He can also play weakside linebacker as well, which will only help Kendricks’ case to receive playing time early in the season. As much as head coach...

Running back Melvin Gordon reaches agreement with San Diego teammate to again wear No. 25

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Melvin Gordon has reached an agreement to again wear No. 25. The running back wore the number starring for Wisconsin and before that in high school in Kenosha, Wis. However, after Gordon was drafted by San Diego last month, the Chargers announced he had been issued No. 28. But Gordon’s mother, Carmen Gordon, said Thursday her son has swung a deal to get No. 25 on the Chargers from special teams stalwart Darrell Stuckey. Gordon’s mother said she didn’t have details on how much the running back must pay or what he has to do for […] The post...
