If I were to ask you who you thought the best rapper on the Vikings team was, who would you say? Maybe you'd think scraggly looking, Eazy-E type home boy like Jerome Simpson (the weed history would also lead me to that conclusion, but that's separate), or maybe you'd even say Jamarca Sanford, because he seems crazy enough. But what if I told you that the best rapper on the Vikings was actually like the Batman of the Vikings? By gameday, mild mannered Greg Jennings is the perfect role model football player. But by pre-game and practice week, Greg Jennings becomes ... THE GREATEST RAPPER EVER! [Video after the jump] Oh yeah, there's something about Vikings players bouncing a volleyball around for a while, but after that, you get to Greg Jennings rapping. So, there's that. He must have been really bored in Green Bay all those years, practicing his craft. Thankfully, he'll probably be pretty bored in Minnesota for the next five years as well, so hopefully his rhymes will get better, because ... Uh, this wasn't "It Was Written" or anything. [follow]

Ponder refers to Vikings signing Josh Freeman as 'disappointing'

A lot can change in a span of two weeks in the NFL, and Vikings backup quarterback Christian Ponder knows that all too well. Ponder was sitting comfortably in the starter spot until two weeks ago, when he went out with a rib injury and backup Matt Cassel stepped in. Since then, the team has brought embattled QB Josh Freeman into the mix, and he new depth chart scenario is something...

Vikings Release McLeod Bethel-Thompson

To make room for new quarterback the Vikings have released quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson. This doesn’t come as a shocker as he was clearly the odd-man out int he current quarterback situation. McLeod Bethel-Thompson has always intrigued fans with his ability and big arm. The former Sacremento St. quarterback was the Vikings 3rd string quarterback in 2012 but has yet to see...

Don't Worry, We Have Shirtless Pictures of Josh Freeman

Can Adrian Peterson rush for two straight 2000 yard seasons?

Adrian Peterson rushed for 2097 yards last season after he returned from a horrible knee injury.

Freeman gets to work in Minnesota

Let the crash course begin. Josh Freeman practiced for the first time with the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday, three days after he was signed to eventually be their starting quarterback. With the Vikings sitting at a precarious 1-3 heading into a game against Carolina on Sunday, Freeman is trying to absorb a brand new offense and get on the same page with a new set of teammates...

Brian Robison reels in four-year extension from Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Brian Robison has made himself a home in Minnesota and a career with the Minnesota Vikings. When the opportunity arose to stay in Minnesota, Robison had his representation work out a deal to stay with the Vikings so he could spend his entire career with one team. The ability to do a bit of fishing in the state's 10,000 lakes didn't hurt either. "...

Vikings made no promises to new QB Josh Freeman

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Josh Freeman said he followed his heart. Rick Spielman ignored his. After a tumultuous end with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Josh Freeman chose to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, eschewing offers from several other teams because he said he felt comfortable about the situation and opportunity with Minnesota. Spielman jumped on the chance to add Freeman, bringing...

Vikings McLeod Bethel-Thompson Claimed by 49ers

When the Vikings released McLeod Bethel-Thompson to sign Josh Freeman we all knew there was a chance he would get claimed on waivers. Well, that is exactly what happened. The San Francisco 49ers claimed the 25 year old quarterback. McLeod Bethel-Thompson spent some time back in 2011 with the 49ers so there is familiarity there. To make room for the quarterback the 49ers released...

Ponder disappointed but isn't asking out from Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Christian Ponder's status with the Minnesota Vikings seems obvious, even though no one within the organization is making grand statements on the quarterback once drafted 12th overall and thought to be the long-term answer at his position. Minnesota signed Josh Freeman, who had his own falling out with an organization that believed him to be a franchise...

Christian Ponder On The Outs In Minnesota?

As we mentioned earlier in the day, all signs suggest that the Vikings will start Matt Cassel at quarterback against the Panthers on Sunday, despite Christian Ponder being cleared to play. HC Leslie Frazier was not willing to reveal who the starter will be this weekend, but Sean Jensen reports that Cassel received ”most, if not all” of the first-team reps during Thursday”s...

$975 million is not enough to fund new Vikings stadium?

Rendering of the new Vikings stadium that now will be 8% less grand.You’d think nearly $1 billion would be enough to build a new state-of-the art stadium for the Vikings. But $975 million just doesn’t stretch like it used to in this post-recession, post-Tarvaris Jackson world. According to a report today in the Star Tribune, the team may have to cut some of the amenities to get...

ROSTER MOVES: Robison Re-Signs, Bethel-Thompson Experiment Over

The Minnesota Vikings had some fairly, non-quarterback related roster moves occur this week, to everyone's surprise. Well ... Not ONLY related quarterback moves. Either way, they were both good.  The Vikings offered a contract extension to defensive end Brian Robison, who signed it as fast as he could, to the tune of 4 years, $28 Million with $13 Million guaranteed. At the...

Carolina Panthers at Minnesota Vikings: 2013 Week 6 NFL Pick

Carolina Panthers (1-3) at Minnesota Vikings (1-3) I can’t quit the Panthers. They’re clearly not going 12-4 like I thought they would at the start of the season. I can admit that because it’s clearly wrong and because I was right about pretty much everything else. But they’re not as bad as they’ve looked. They could easily be 3-1 right now. They are outscoring opponents...
