Rumors Fly Regarding Taylor

I have long stated that it makes sense for both parties if the Vikings and Chester Taylor separate this offseason. Now, only days before the start of free agency, the rumor mill would lead one to believe that I may get at least one prediction correct. PFT pointed out that Taylor’s jersey has been reduced […]

Another Aging Running Back To Consider

At this point, any player that is released will become a target of speculation for the Vikings fans… and for pretty good reason. The “Final Four Plan” (which goes into effect if a Collective Bargaining Agreement is not reached by March 5th) dictates that the Vikings are very limited in what they can do when […]

Speculation Of L.T. Joining A.D.

Well, I guess it is that slow time in the NFL offseason where any player released will be rumored to be heading to the Vikings.  If nothing else, this speculation gives us something to talk about during the days in which no real news-worthy events are happening. The Chargers released running back LaDanian Tomlinson on […]

OFFSEASON PREVIEW: Boiling It All Down

Well, I recently finished my position-by-position breakdown of the Vikings roster and how I felt they would proceed with this year’s offseason.  They are pretty in depth (I actually even did some research!) and then I made predictions for each position. I thought it might be fun to kind of compile all of my predictions […]

Spielman Reveals Offseason Plans

Star Tribune reporter Judd Zulgad caught up with Rick Spielman, the Vikings Vice President of Player Personnel, at the Vikings annual Artic Blast event. First, it would be a mistake not to mention that the Artic Blast event is an annual fundraiser for the Vikings Children’s Fund and a great time for all.  If you […]

More Confusing Rules

The pending Collective Bargaining Agreement and pending uncapped year presents many new rules throughout the offseason, especially for the Vikings since they qualified as a top-four team. As I gain better understanding of these rules, I will endeavor to pass that information along to you guys so that everyone can have a clear understanding of […]

Offseason Moves To Begin Today

Today is the first major date on the NFL’s offseason calendar. Today, teams can begin to apply franchise and transition tags to their free agent players.  Due to the pending Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams will get two tags this year… one of each. February 15th is the deadline for the extra transition tag if a […]

Vikings Tried To Land DeDe Dorsey

DeDe Dorsey recently signed with the Detroit Lions.  The choice to go to Detroit for Dorsey as starter Kevin Smith suffered an injury that could open up a chance for Dorsey to start in 2010. A nugget of info in this report of the move, however, mentions that both the Rams and the Vikings made […]

OFFSEASON PREVIEW: Running Backs

Happy Groundhog Day! I am continuing my effort to look at the Vikings roster position-by-position before the offseason gets into full swing.  This is the second installment, and my take on the quarterback situation can be viewed by clicking here. It has been a while since the Vikings have had any real questions as to […]

Vikings Will Be Limited In Free Agency

A reader named Pat put me on the trail of some interesting information regarding free agency and the Vikings. To clarify, here is an excerpt from nfl.com:   During the Final League Year, the eight clubs that make the Divisional Playoffs in the previous season have additional restrictions that limit their ability to sign unrestricted […]
