Did Greg Jennings refuse to refer to Aaron Rodgers by name out of malice, or was the new Minnesota Vikings receiver simply taking a playful shot at his former quarterback? Did Jennings imply that he'd prefer to play with Brett Favre over Rodgers, or was the phrasing of his response just confusing? These are the questions still unanswered after Jennings sat down for a question-and-answer interview this week with the Pioneer Press in Minnesota. Jennings was asked by reporter Bob Sansevere about Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder, prefacing the question by stating that Jennings played with two potential Hall of Fame quarterbacks in Green Bay. "When you talk about comparing quarterbacks, it's hard to compare guys," Jennings replied. "I'll take Brett. He did it for so long.

Vikings tight end John Carlson looks to add impact to passing game

John Carlson’s first season with the Minnesota Vikings didn’t go quite the way anybody hoped. However, the Vikings are not second-guessing the decision to make Carlson one of the NFL's higher-paid tight ends. With the growing trend of two tight end sets, Carlson is a valuable commodity to book end with second year Pro-Bowler Kyle Rudolph. Carlson was drafted by the...

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.

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.
