FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
The governor of Minnesota objects to the Vikings' release of punter Chris Kluwe. See what the politician had to say about the move.
The University of Minnesota has agreed to allow the Vikings use TCF Bank Stadium as they wait for their new stadium to be built. The agreement must now be voted on by the University’s Board of Regents on Friday. The Vikings are scheduled to play at TCF Bank Stadium for the 2014 and 2015 seasons. I’m sure they can’t wait to play a home game in late December in the out doors...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jeff Locke had plenty of contact with the Minnesota Vikings and special teams coordinator Mike Priefer before being drafted by the team two weeks ago.
Locke had met with Minnesota at the Senior Bowl and the Scouting Combine. Priefer later conducted a private workout with Locke at UCLA, where Locke's 44.23-yard average is second all-time in school history...
This is an article about unaffiliated NFL punter Chris Kluwe. He's not technically a member of the Minnesota Vikings any longer, but lick my short shaft, people, because this is now a Chris Kluwe blog whenever I want it to be, so shut your damn mouth. No one complains when we write a bunch of crap about Randy Moss even though he was a 49er, so what's your problem.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. On the surface, Shariff Floyd can appear menacing at 6-foot-3, 297 pounds. His ferocity on the football field led him to become a first-round draft pick by the Minnesota Vikings.
But up close, Floyd wears an easy smile. He's soft spoken and articulate.
"I'm always calm," Floyd said during his introductory press conference in Minnesota. "...
The Minnesota Vikings have wrapped up an agreement with the University of Minnesota to play their home games at TCF Bank Stadium while the new Vikings stadium is being built. And it's going to cost them.
The Vikings will pay the university $250,000 for every game and up to an additional $50,000 in concession and advertising revenue. That could add up to as much as $3 million...
BEREA, Ohio - Rookie minicamp is about opportunity, and that's why Robbie Rouse is here.
Now, Rouse has to make enough plays to stay around longer.
He's listed as a tryout player on the Browns minicamp roster, but the former Fresno State running back is in Berea this weekend because the Browns plan to sign him to a contract.
After trying out last weekend with the Minnesota...
No doubt the opinionated ways of punter Chris Kluwe didn’t help his employment status, but if the Vikings really did release him for “football reasons,” what do the numbers and rankings say about his performance and his replacement? You might be surprised.
Michael Mauti is convinced the third time on ACL surgery will be the charm. He learns how to approach it better each time and has confidence in the Vikings’ successful track record with other players.
Matt Cassel is quick with the one-liners, as he proved when asked about backing up Tom Brady, but he also brings some quality experience as a backup, something Christian Ponder has been missing for most of his young career.
Sports, politics and social issues. Those are three topics that are often digested separately, but sometimes they come bundled together. That's the scenario that formed when NBA player Jason Collins became the first active athlete in a major American sport to come out as gay. It's also the situation that was often created by Chris Kluwe, the Vikings' former punter.
These days for NFL teams it is all about the stadium--bigger, better, and more luxurious. The San Francisco 49ers know this which is why they are building a new home. When it opens for the 2014 season it will have a name that will be familiar to all. No--not Steve Young Stadium or the House that Joe (Montana) Built.
