Vikings LB Chad Greenway thinks Adrian Peterson can still win NFL MVP

Chad Greenway jumped on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday, discussing a wide range of topics during the slowest period in the NFL. Among some of the click-bait questions, the linebacker was asked whether running back Adrian Peterson can still win an NFL MVP award. “Yes. Why not?” Greenway responded. “It’s Adrian. He can do anything. I still tend to lean towards the fact that we’ve gotten so much preseason publicity is because of our quarterback. Unfortunately for running backs, it’s just like the 4-3 outside linebacker, it’s an undervalued position. As good as he is and as great...

Vikings LB Brian Peters benefits from increased reps

With the amount of injured Vikings linebackers during OTAs and minicamp, Brian Peters benefited with an increased amount of reps on defense last month. The Northwestern product converted from safety to linebacker after college and played the last two seasons in the Canadian Football League with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He signed with the Vikings during the offseason, hoping to land a spot on the 53-man roster as a special teams player and a depth piece at linebacker. “Brian is doing a nice job with all the coverage aspects of where he’s supposed to be, you’d expect that from a...

Vikings DE Danielle Hunter molding 'raw' talent

When people speak about Danielle Hunter, including us here on this blog, the first word to describe the defensive end is typically “raw”. He was a two-year starter at LSU, starting 23 of the 38 games he played in. When you watched how Hunter played, it’s clear there’s still plenty he has to learn and it’s not necessarily his fault. Hunter was just doing what the LSU coaching staff told him to do. Plus, he was very young in college. While it’s extremely difficult to gauge how players in the trenches look during OTAs and minicamp without pads, you can observe technique. Hands and...

Vikings rookie evaluations: DE Danielle Hunter

Part 1: Trae Waynes Part 2: Eric Kendricks Moving right along as we get a better understanding of this year’s Vikings draft class, we come across the most gifted Vikings rookie in terms of athleticism. Defensive end Danielle Hunter, the team’s third round pick, is by far the most intriguing selection. The 20-year-old is listed at 6-5 and 252 pounds with arms measured at 34 ¼ inches at the NFL Combine. You can read more about his story here. He’s an athlete, but can he develop those raw traits at defensive end, or linebacker, for the Vikings? Strengths: Whether it’s the start of a big...

Vikings' Jeff Locke still seeking consistency

There will be competition at long snapper during training camp next month as Cullen Loeffler and Kevin McDermott battle for the starting job. The Vikings opted not to bring in another punter to compete with Jeff Locke, however. Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer after the season did not recommend bringing in another punter and kicker to compete with Locke and Blair Walsh. Specifically with Locke, who will enter his third season, Priefer said Locke’s confident did not play a factor into the decision of sticking with one punter. “He’s a pretty mentally tough kid,” Priefer said....

Vikings getting national attention as team on the rise

It’s late June, when all Super Bowl titles are won. Scratch that, we’re about as far from the Super Bowl as possible. Late June is the time when NFL folks start to try to determine the contenders and pretenders — which includes determining which teams might be in a position to surprise. The Vikings appear to be a trendy “surprise” pick to go from 7-9 a season ago to a winning record and possibly a playoff berth this season. The latest to give the Vikings praise? ESPN’s John Clayton. The reasons he cites — Teddy Bridgewater, Adrian Peterson and a strong defense — are all solid...

Vikings: Adrian Peterson is back, but don't forget McKinnon

Jerick McKinnon has put out notice to fantasy football players. Just because Adrian Peterson is back, don't forget about him.

Adrian Peterson actually excited by No. 62 ranking by NFL Network, but says he's still league's best back

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Adrian Peterson recently was named the 62nd-best player in the NFL. He actually was excited about it. NFL Network is doing its annual countdown of the top 100 players in the league, based upon voting by players. When Peterson recently was named No. 62, a drop from No. 4 the previous year, the Vikings running back wasn't bothered in the slightest. That’s because Peterson cracked the list despite missing the final 15 games last year because of a child-abuse incident. He doesn’t believe other top NFL running backs would have gotten as much love...

Charles Johnson not concerned most of the Vikings talk at wide receiver about Mike Wallace, Cordarrelle Patterson

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com The Vikings’ leading receiver over the final seven games last season was Charles Johnson. You’d never realize that by listening to the hype surrounding Mike Wallace and Cordarelle Patterson. The talk at wide receiver heading into the start of training camp July 26 is about what Wallace might do after being acquired last March from Miami and how Patterson could bounce back following a disappointing second season. But Johnson insists he’s not concerned that some might be forgetting about him. “I don’t really play into the hype,’’...
