Donald Driver doesn’t want to leave Green Bay, but football is a business and he knows it may be different colors he adorns in 2013. At 38, Driver still feels he can be a very productive receiver despite logging 77 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2012. The Minnesota Viking has a legitimate interest in the veteran, and they also have plenty of room for him to come in and play a key role. "I think I could go to any team and be either their No. 1 or No. 2 guy and be solid for another three years," Driver told FOX 11 two weeks ago. "The question is, do I want to see myself in another uniform? Will my family want to see that? If nobody wants to see it, at the end of the day, it will still be a tough decision because I've always said I only want to wear that green and gold and nothing else," via Paul Imig of Foxsportswisconsin.com. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • I don't think Frazier is all that interested in getting guys past their prime and on the decline. I'd be very surprised to hear anyone on the Vikings confirm any interest in Driver. Jennings, Maybe.
  • Gotta agree-- Vikes on a youth movement-- 3/4 succeesful to this point. Can't see their interest, unless all else fails.
  • we do not need him we need young talent draft or trade for soemoen would be betetr for us given we have young team in general we need young receivers to go with the rest of the team
    and they had better draft a few young receivers !

  • Donald is a class act and stays in great shape, but he just doesn't separate from defenders like he used to. Everybody gets old- I hope the Vikes pass on this one.
  • Donald Driver is too old and we do not want to go in that direction...
  • I could see the Vikings taking a look at Driver if he was 35 years old but 38 years old? I highly doubt it! They will look to the draft for a Wide out or two and most likely sign some free agent to a year contract at some point.
  • heck, might as well go after Randy Moss
  • driver said yesterday he is retiring

Adrian Peterson Loves Orange Peanuts, Still Cooler than Everyone

LOL, WUT. True story. Adrian Peterson loves orange peanuts, especially when they are for him.

Vikings’ Chris Kluwe RickRoll’d the commissioner

Rule #1 of the internet: Never, ever, trust it or anyone hanging out on it. Especially those participating in message boards and chats. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell missed this memo, as Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe clowned on him in a Reddit discussion thread. Admit, you’ve been RickRoll’d. If you deny it, you probably won’t admit to getting your butt whooped at least...

Favre joins NFL Network's Super Bowl crew

Brett Favre is back in the NFL. Well, on the NFL Network, at least.

No decision yet on Frazier's contract extension

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. While the coaching carousel has been spinning feverishly in the NFL this month, there has been little news with the Minnesota Vikings coaching staff. For a team that has seen its share of turnover in recent years, the silence is probably being enjoyed. Other than interviews for special teams coordinator Mike Priefer and Mike Singletary, the co-linebackers coach...

Simpson: ‘I definitely love being here’

Links of the Day 1/28/13

This time next week, we’ll know who won the Super Bowl, and we can rightfully turn our attention to Kentucky Derby prep. So the Pro Bowl was a thing that actually happened yesterday. This may have been the worst game ever. Like a middle school game, actually. One other note on the Pro Bowl. Kyle Rudolph won the Pro Bowl MVP, which was the trophy the Vikings were going for this...
