Minnesota Vikings UDFA RB Zach Line understands he has to work hard to make the roster

I had the pleasure to watch the newest member of the Minnesota Vikings, Zach Line numerous times this year, and let me tell you a little about the tough nosed runner from SMU.  If there is a player that is going to shock people this year like Alfred Morris it is definitely going to be Zach.  Zach is a bigger back, with speed an versatility.

Pro Bowl 'flipped the switch' for Vikings' Kyle Rudolph

Jeff George present at Vikings OTAs as 'guest coach'

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jeff George has been a name that has tantalized Minnesota Vikings' fans since his 12-game run with the team back in 1999. George, the 12-year NFL quarterback and former first-overall pick in the 1990 draft, was back on the field for Minnesota this week. But hold off on any thought the 45-year-old is challenging for Christian Ponder's starting spot. George...

In final year of big contract, Jared Allen looks to get healthy

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. In an offseason in which the Minnesota Vikings made several tough, and somewhat unpopular, business decisions with several veteran players, the team left Jared Allen and his 17 million-plus cap hit alone. Allen, entering the final season of a six-year, 73 million contract, is due a 14.28 million base salary. He's coming off a season with depressed numbers...

Christian Ponder: “There are no after-effects” from his bruised triceps injury

Minnesota Viking quarterback Christian Ponder was forced to miss the playoffs last season after he sustained a deep bruise to his throwing triceps. Five months later Ponder says that there is no “after-effects” from the injury and that it feels “good”. That playoff loss was a win-win for Ponder. He wasn’t the one embarrassed by the Packers (the injury forced back up Travaris...

Adrian Peterson says he wouldn’t be comfortable taking a shower with a gay teammate

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson recently came out and stated that he doesn’t believe in gay marriage. Now he says if he wouldn’t be comfortable taking a shower with a gay teammate.

Vikings Hire Interesting New Mentor for Christian Ponder--Jeff George?

The Minnesota Vikings are primed to become the next dominant team until free agency tears them apart. They have arguably the best running back in the NFL in Adrian Peterson and a talented young receiving duo in Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson. However, in order to ascend to the elite in the NFL hierarchy they need one thing--for quarterback Christian Ponder to step his game...

Fan letter leads to surprise meeting with Brett Favre

Lance Schultz figured he'd slide the envelope through the mail slot and never hear from its intended recipient again. He wondered how many times a fan had written his favorite athlete a letter, only to come away disappointed when it failed to yield a response. Besides, Schultz thought, Brett Favre was probably busy anyway. "I said, 'What do I have to lose?'"...

Greg Jennings takes a slight dig at Aaron Rodgers

Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was asked to compare Christian Ponder to both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers from his playing days with the Packers.  It certainly doesn’t sound like he thinks very highly of Rodgers any longer. “When you talk about comparing quarterbacks, it’s hard to compare guys. I’ll take Brett. He did it for so long. I got there in a period of time...

Robert Griffin III Says He Hasn't Heard From Donovan McNabb; Not Interested Anyway

Over the weekend one of the more popular stories on the web involved former NFL Donovan McNabb who insisted that RG3 was doing 'too much' and should just be concentrating on football. He claimed that he even reached out to Griffin and his family in order to have a sit down with the young quarterback so he could spread his wisdom. Sounded like it could be true, right...

No, No, Percy Harvin Was TOTALLY Cool with Christian Ponder!

Soon after the Minnesota Vikings traded Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks, speculation started doubling as to why exactly Percy was so upset in Minnesota. Was it because the state had failed continuously to legalize marijuana? Was Harvin still disenfranchised over the Brad Childress era? Or was it just that the "future of the franchise" in quarterback Christian Ponder...

RG3 Throwing at OTAs to Bands a Make Her Dance (Video)

I will be perfectly frank, I am just posting this to hopefully annoy Donovan McNabb. I think it is funny Albert Breer of the NFL Network posted this video and it just happens to be playing Juicy J in the background.  Wonder if he had ever heard of the song before.  Thanks for Pro Football Zone for the scoop. No one this means anything right now. RG3 shouldn’t rush back, but...
