Golden Tate: I want to retire a Detroit Lion

Golden Tate: I want to retire a Detroit Lion

Golden Tate has made it clear he wants and extension, but he’d prefer to stay in Detroit. For nearly an entire year, Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate has made it very clear that he wants to get paid soon. It all started back in June of 2017 when Julian Edelman received a modest two-year, $11 million extension. Even though the figures were low, it still caught the attention of the Lions receiver: I hope I'm one of the next ones to get extended..... big plays can come in all shapes and forms huh? https://t.co/Rsw1jBRPWU— Golden Tate (@ShowtimeTate) June 9, 2017 Since then, Tate...

Adam Thielen gets class out of pre-calculus final (We think)

The teacher made a deal with the class, and Thielen did his part Hat tip to The Vikings Wire for finding this one first. For people like yours truly, high school was a loooooooooooooooooooooong time ago. However, even at my advanced age, I remember enough to know that finals time is pretty awful.

Reid Busker, a student at Staples-Motley High School in Staples, Minnesota, wrote a note on the white board and put it out on Twitter. (Unfortunately, I can’t put the...

The time Kirk Cousins did a cameo on South Park

It happened because he got promoted in real life Hat tip to the folks from the Vikings’ page on Reddit for pointing this out. The season opener for Season 18 of the hit television series South Park was a 30-minute skewering of the Washington Redskins, their owner, Dan Snyder, and the National Football League in general. Called “Go Fund Yourself,” the episode features the four main children in the South Park world starting a company, and in an attempt to find an original name for the company, decide to name it “The Washington Redskins,” as the team’s trademark had lapsed.

Open thread: Do the Lions have a top 25 player under 25 years old?

Do the Lions have any of the best young players in the NFL? Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn now has three drafts under his belt. While he’s mostly avoided any clear busts (thus far), Detroit has yet to pick up a huge game-changing draft pick that has taken the league by storm. There are certainly some candidates who could develop into premier players. Taylor Decker got unlucky with a shoulder injury during the offseason of his second year. There’s also Jamal Agnew, only 23 years old, who already has an All-Pro selection under his belt as a phenomenal punt returner. And Kenny...

Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, & Adam Thielen named one of NFL’s best trios

Yeah, they’re pretty good As we’ve established on several occasions, the offseason in the NFL is the time for ranking and rating things. In keeping with that, we have another listing that, correctly, identifies the Minnesota Vikings as a team with a great deal of talent. Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports has ranked all of the “trios” in the NFL, and it has nothing to do with lucha libre. (Even though that would have been just as awesome.) No, he’s taken what he has deemed to be each team’s best quarterback-running back-wide receiver combination and ranked them from 1 to 32. The...

The two were teammates at Florida State Hat tip to The Viking Age for finding this one first. There is, perhaps, no team in the NFL that talks more “smack” than the Jacksonville Jaguars, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. I mean, obviously they have reason to, given that they’re really, really good. However, following the announcement of the joint practice between the Jaguars and the Minnesota Vikings leading up to their preseason contest this August, Vikings’ cornerback Xavier Rhodes has turned the tables a bit and talked a little trash of his own.
