No compensatory picks for the Vikings

The Vikings did not receive any compensatory draft picks this year. The NFL on Friday afternoon revealed which teams have been awarded the 32 compensatory picks for April’s draft. Unsurprisingly, the Vikings were not one of the 16 teams that received at least one bonus selection, which can now be traded for the first time in NFL history. Which teams receive these comp picks is determined by a secret formula developed by the NFL Management Council that the NFL says is “based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.” To simplify it, if you lose more quality free agents than you...

Rick Spielman gives a little insight on the Vikings' offseason plan

Rick Spielman met with local beat reporters this morning and assured us all that the Vikings have a plan in place for the looming NFL offseason. Unfortunately, Spielman did not share many specifics of that plan with us. But the GM did give some insight on how the Vikings might proceed. The front office and coaching staff spent the past six weeks taking a long look at their roster and then compared their players to the ones who are expected to be available next month in free agency and in April’s draft. While he noted that “everyone gets riled up” if the Vikings don’t make a splash on...

After clearing way at right guard, Vikings have potential options in free agency

The Vikings cut both of last year’s competitors for right guard and enter a healthy free agent market with a clean slate at the position. Brandon Fusco and Mike Harris, both released this month, had started every game for the Vikings at right guard the past two seasons. And, unlike the offense’s prospects to rebuild at tackle, there are a handful of proven options for the Vikings to do so inside. Cincinnati’s Kevin Zeitler, Green Bay’s T.J. Lang and Detroit’s Larry Warford are three starting right guards who could hit the market next month. To sign one, the Vikings would likely...

NBA trade deadline: Wolves thoughts, rumors and an interesting Ricky Rubio tweet

With the NBA trade deadline approaching Thursday, there are no guarantees the Timberwolves will make any moves.

Here’s a look at some of the significant recent reports and developments. *The Ricky Rubio for Derrick Rose trade report first popped up Monday on ESPN, and it doesn’t seem to be losing much steam. David Aldridge reported Tuesday afternoon via Twitter, Wolves’ pursuit of Derrick Rose still very strong —...
