Vikings hoping Packers' gamble is their gain with LB Desmond Bishop

The Green Bay Packers rolled the dice when they released linebacker Desmond Bishop and it could backfire twice if he proves to be fully recovered with the Minnesota Vikings. The team felt Bishop was expendable after a severe hamstring injury, but economics surely played a large role in the decision. So now, this decision might backfire. Bishop signed a one-year; prove he’s...

Kyle Rudolph Looks To Become Elite Tight End in 2013

Obviously, a brilliant Pro Bowl appearance is not the best measure of future success, but Kyle Rudolph‘s five receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown en route to the MVP honors gave a glimpse into his potential. There were times during the 2012 season when the Minnesota Vikings tight end flashed that same brilliance, particularly when he scored five touchdowns in the first six...

Second year TE Kyle Rudolph is ready to build on impressive rookie season

Tight end Kyle Rudolph’s became a favorite target of QB Christian Ponder in 2012 and the second year player feels he can do more. His confidence is soaring after a rookie season that saw him being selected to the Pro Bowl. Along with fellow tight end John Carlson, the Vikings have a formidable 1-2 punch at the tight end position and that should help the young Ponder grow in...

The Unusual Nature of Jared Allen’s Contract Year

In today’s NFL it is rare to see a player play out the length of a big-money contract. Since NFL teams have the right to cut players at any time with relatively little repercussions because NFL player contracts are not fully guaranteed, what initially may seem like a large financial sum often does not dictate what a player will actually be receiving; instead, a look at the guaranteed...

Lito Sheppard: Donovan McNabb puked during Super Bowl

Many have wondered whether or not Donovan McNabb lost his lunch during the waning minutes of Super Bowl XXXIX. Thanks to Lito Sheppard, you can wonder no more. In a recent appearance on WIP radio, the former Eagles cornerback confirmed that McNabb did indeed puke. "Yes," said Sheppard, via "He did." McNabb has consistently denied tossing his cookies...

During a question and answer session on the Packers official website, team CEO Mark Murphy hinted that the return of Brett Favre into the organizations good graces is not that far away. While answering questions, Murphy admitted that team was aiming to retire Favre’s number before 2016, when Favre would officially be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I am often asked...

Minnesota Vikings: Secondary on the rise

(Photo by: Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) A theme has been present for years with the Minnesota Vikings defense. They could stop the run but couldn’t cover an ant with a piece of paper. After taking a look at the team on the field and by the numbers I believe things are looking up for the secondary. Things looked difficult with the sure tackling, always injured Antoine Winfield leaving...

Before They Were Pros: CB Xavier Rhodes

Xavier Rhodes had a strong showing at offseason practices, but even before he was a Vikings CB he said he was “not a typical corner.” See what else he had to say at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Jared Allen apparently hates training camp

Ask almost any NFL veteran how excited they are about heading into training camp, and they'll almost unanimously tell you, "Not at all." That's why it's no surprise that Jared Allen apparently hates the idea of getting ready for camp too. "Unfortunately, yes," Allen said on NFL AM when he was asked if his surgically repaired shoulder would be ready...

I say frequently, because every once in a while we come across some...

Sunday slant: Returning WRs 'above average'

The NFL’s advanced statistics show the Vikings kept their most productive receivers and moved on with their least productive, and that goes beyond the basic receiving numbers. Those that helped the offense, not just with their catches, are back; and the acquisition of Greg Jennings is a key component in helping both the running game and passing game.
