EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Working out at the team's facilities, Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Childs smiles widely, displaying a supreme confidence and looking nothing like a player in the midst of an intense rehab from a potentially career-ending injury. Childs has always had that swagger, that confidence in himself and his physical gifts. It's one reason that he never doubted he'd be back to play for Minnesota, even after suffering torn patellar tendons in both of his knees in training camp last season. Childs has been running for about three months. He says he can run routes, though he doesn't run through them full speed with his teammates yet. He's done some cutting on those two surgically-repaired knees, even jumping on the knees that have let him down too many times in his career. "I'm doing all the things I was doing before," Childs said earlier this month while working out during the team's offseason conditioning program. "I'm p...

RED ALERT: Shirtless Vikings Do Harlem Shake Video

If that headline doesn't work for the internet, then nothing will. What you see above is a picture from a video from Vikings players proving that the Harlem Shake phenomenon isn't QUIET dead yet. Unfortunately. It also proves that Harlem Shake videos are only enjoyable when they are shorter in length, and when they involve shirtless NFL players doing them. I also can...

Jared Allen isn’t about to take a pay cut: ‘if anybody asked me to take a pay cut, I'd be through the first door out of there’

Minnesota Viking defensive end Jared Allen said no one from the team’s front office has approached him about restructuring his contract. However, if that were to happen, it better not be a pay cut because Allen wants no part of that at all. The veteran is open to move some money around, but he isn’t going to take less money than what he signed for.

Christian Ponder to Sign Stuff So I Can Give It To You

OK people, I'm not going to lie. This post is total corporate shill, but it's for a good cause. Namely, you may get free stuff out of it! And it's weird from my perspective, so we're totally rolling with it. Word around the burning Metrodome campfire is that Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder will be attending a grand re-opening of a Champs Sports location at...

Vikings' secondary late to the 'Harlem Shake' party

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Apparently members of the Minnesota Vikings' secondary couldn't resist getting into the Harlem Shake craze, creating their own video of the dance that had become an internet sensation a few months ago. Of course, Minnesota's outspoken safety Jamarca Sanford is leading the way in this video, which appears to include safeties Harrison Smith, cornerback...

Vikings will rely on Rhodes to slow NFC North foes

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. For the past several years, the Minnesota Vikings have entered seasons with a preferred set of cornerbacks they believed could help them negate the pass-happy offenses in the NFC North. Inevitably, injuries hit and poor performance left the secondary among the biggest weak spots for Minnesota. The injuries became a yearly issue with players like Cedric Griffin...

Jared Allen says the Vikings haven’t asked him to renegotiate his contract

The Star Tribune caught up with Minnesota Vikings defense end Jared Allen and asked him if he was asked to renegotiate his contract this past offseason. “You use the word restructure and that to me makes it feel like they’d want me to take a pay cut,” replied Allen. “And if anybody asked me to take a pay cut, I’d be through the first door out of there. So no. We haven...

Jared Allen: Vikings haven’t talked contract ‘one iota’

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen is in the last season of the contract he signed in 2008 and is due to earn $14.3 million this season, which could be his last in a Vikings uniform. The 31-year-old spoke to Dan Wiedere of The Star Tribune and confirmed that Minnesota hasn’t asked him to restructure

Look at This Awesome Old Vikings Sweater

Look at this god damn thing. It's a work of art. The deep purple, the kingly gold, the horizontal stripes. It's like whatever grandmother knitted this reached deep into my wet dreams and retrieved this from the ether to display it so finely on a weird ass mannequin. Not that I'm complaining. While I'd love to wear it, I will also gladly ogle it like a picture of Jennifer...

Rhodes isn’t a frequent ‘burn’ victim

Xavier Rhodes’ “burn rate” in college was the best among the top cornerbacks available in this year’s draft involved in a STATS study. See how he stacked up against others and what he had to say about making the transition to the Vikings defense.
