Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson told the Star Tribune that he doesn’t plan on relaxing before training camp begins next month. He’s only going to work harder to get ready for the season.

The Vikings were ecstatic when Sharrif Floyd fell to them at No. 23 in April’s draft, but they aren’t going to force Kevin Williams out of a starting role yet and they have no plans to make Floyd a nose tackle.
The Vikings have enacted personnel changes at receiver, but they also believe Christian Ponder has changed. The proof will be in the numbers this year, one of them average last year and one of them among the worst.
There are plenty of storylines to track in Minnesota this year. The team made the playoffs a year ago and Adrian Peterson topped 2,000 yards...
Greg Jennings is loving life as a rich Minnesota Vikings wide receiver, and in doing so, has taken a few shots at his former team, and former quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Jennings raised some eyebrows when he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that he would take Brett Favre over “the guy they have now” at quarterback.
