Former Vikings' QB was target of bounty

The Gregg Williams-led bounty program has been far reaching in NFL circles and more than once it has targeted Minnesota Vikings' quarterbacks. Brett Favre received a lot of attention after being battered by the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 NFC Championship game, but apparently another Minnesota signal-caller had been targeted years before.

Can Manning catch Favre, Marino?

Obviously Peyton Manning felt he had unfinished business. Among the items on his to-do list are some records currently held by Brett Favre and Dan Marino. Weller Ross takes a look at those records and finds that Manning may find himself at the top of the charts sooner rather than later: So similarly to completions, Peyton should catch Marino this year, and despite being 109 behind...

Rick Spielman Defends Limited Spending, Vikings Bring Back Aromashodu, Chris Cook

Numerous NFL clubs have been extremely active during this 2012 NFL Free Agency frenzy.

Ex-basketball player eyes NFL with Vikings

Two weeks into free agency, followers of the Minnesota Vikings have questioned new general manager Rick Spielman's relative inactivity coming off of last season's 3-13 record.

Yet perhaps the one move that...

Vikings ink CB Bowman to one-year deal

The Minnesota Vikings signed free-agent cornerback Zack Bowman to a one-year deal on Monday. Terms were not disclosed on the contract, which was first reported by ESPN Chicago.
