BEST OF MAXIM
Ever since the Minnesota Vikings signed Matt Cassel (and his wife) to be the back up quarterback for the team, every fan was probably wondering what exactly it was that he was bringing to the team. Was he going to push incumbent Christian Ponder for the starting job? Was he really just supposed to be a low-paid mentor? Would he successfully bring his wife to gala events? No one knew...

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen limped toward the locker room with his left knee taped after Tuesday’s practice. He rolled his ankle during the 2-minute drill work, reports The Minneapolis Star Tribune. “We’ll look it over,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said, “and determine whether or not we need to do an MRI.”
Defensive end Everson Griffen is establishing himself as a productive player for the Minnesota Vikings. In the final year of his rookie contract, Griffen could be in line for a big payday by the end of the year if he can continues to improve.

MANKATO, Minn. -- Jared Allen has heard for the past several years that the Minnesota Vikings hope to limit his snaps during the regular season to make him more effective over the course of a long season and late in games. Kevin Williams, entering perhaps his final season with Minnesota, is hearing some of it this season.
The two proud veterans have combined for 11 Pro Bowls and...
Minnesota Vikings LT Matt Kalil spent his summer gaining weight, not losing it. It sound like a bad thing, but for Kalil he needs to be heavier coming into camp to be more stout.
In the offseason he’s goes down to 280 pounds, however, his playing weight is 315.
He says it’s about putting on the weight the right way, not just eating fast food. It’s also about gaining muscle...
A New Jersey judge's findings following a two-decade court case involving Minnesota Vikings ownership shouldn't affect progress on the team's new multi-million dollar stadium. They will, however, pound a dent into the pocketbooks of the team's principal owner and his front-office family members.

The Minnesota Vikings did something kind of cool yesterday, when they released a fun infograph showing the Visual History of the team. On their Facebook page when they introduced it, they said it was a "tool" to help the British fans brush up on the team, since Vikings fans in England apparently don't have access to the internet.
And it's a nice, striking piece...
MANKATO, Minn. -- Watch enough of the Minnesota Vikings practicing and often you'll hear safety Jamarca Sanford before you see him.
Sanford likes to talk. Just ask him and he'll tell you.
He's loud and doesn't apologize for being boisterous. Sanford doesn't want to be known as just a big talker though. He knows he has to be able to back up his talk with his...
MANKATO, Minn. -- The NFL has used Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson prominently in its videos to demonstrate the new league rule regarding hits using the crown of the helmet.
In a video shown to on-field officials, players and coaches as a teaching tool, there is Peterson running against the Chicago Bears in a game last season, lining up his target and lowering his...
