Kyle Rudolph is a beast and has been turning heads as “the best player in Vikings training camp” so far. Underutilized in his first season, Rudolph could be ready to make a big jump in his sophomore campaign. With a full offseason as the starter, Christian Ponder will only get better and he will look at Rudolph a ton, especially in the Red Zone. He will be moving on up in my next batch of TE rankings.

Viking rookie Matt Kalil is doing a great job thus far of living up to the lofty status that comes with being a USC left tackle and fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft.
Kalil is impressing everyone so far in Vikings camp and driving all pro Jared Allen crazy in the process, which is a compliment in itself.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that Kalil is holding his own in his...
Matt Kalil was the Vikings’ first-round pick (No. 4 overall) in April’s draft, and he’s wasting no time trying to prove his value. The former USC offensive lineman apparently has been going after sack master Jared Allen pretty hard in practice, even frustrating the defensive end, according to Tom Pelissero.
Allen is entering his ninth season in the league and told PFT Live...
MANKATO, Minn. One of Alan Williams' plans since taking over as the Minnesota Vikings' defensive coordinator has been to implement a rotation along the defensive line, keeping the group fresh throughout a long season and ready to attack within games.
Williams has referenced the sports culture in Minnesota, likening the rotation to a hockey lineup with the ability to change...
Ahhh, the opening of NFL training camps. It’s a time where optimism and expectations rule the day. Every team has expectations about the upcoming season. And of course, some expectations are more realistic than others. Take for example Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf’s expectations for this season. They’re completely unrealistic. Despite his team coming off a 3-13 and in...
MANKATO, Minn. Antoine Winfield is entering his 14th NFL season at age 35 and is still considered, in many ways, the Minnesota Vikings' top cornerback.
He's certainly their most experienced. With 181 games under his belt, he leads a group of corners in which only Chris Carr has played more than three NFL seasons. The other 10 cornerbacks in training camp for Minnesota have...
How do we know Donovan McNabb is at the end of his NFL career? It’s late July and the former Super Bowl QB was spotted this week at the San Diego Zoo and not throwing passes as a backup QB. There have been rumors of McNabb to the 49ers and even the Eagles.
Instead, the guy who was supposed to be making a comeback is instead spending time with the kids pretending to enjoy watching...

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer The Minnesota Vikings have a cautious plan for cornerback Antoine Winfield's playing time.
The 35-year-old has dealt with his share of injuries in recent seasons, and the Vikings would rather limit his snaps in both practice and games to make sure he's around the whole time. Coach Leslie...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) Jared Allen is happy to help out the younger Minnesota Vikings, answering questions, giving advice or critiquing their performance.
But be clear about this, young fellas: You're getting paid to play, so the expectations are just as high as they are for the veterans.
''This isn't high school or college,'' said Allen, who is beginning...
Defensive ends Brian Robison and Jared Allen are solid in their starting positions, but they are willingly lending a helping hand to increase the quality of depth behind them. They each talked about that task. Plus, plenty of injury and practice notes from a busy, hot Friday afternoon.
Despite the release of Ryan Longwell, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer says rookie kicker Blair Walsh has plenty of challengers. They are scattered throughout the league on training camp rosters and free-agent lists.
