Adrian Peterson so far on track to play week one

At the end of February, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson indicated that he plans on being ready to play in the first regular season game of the 2012 season, despite tearing both his ACL and MCL at the end of this past season.

Vikings re-sign WR Devin Aromashodu

The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed receiver Devin Aromashodu to a one-year deal. The team announced the deal on Wednesday, continuing an offseason filled with low-impact signings that are geared more toward adding depth than making headlines.

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. The moves included re-signing several players from last year, adding a tight end and offensive lineman who both missed all of last season and bringing in two fullbacks. Yet perhaps the one move that...

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...

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. A report by David Elfin at the CBS...

Minnesota Takes a Rival's Cornerback

Former Chicago Bears' cornerback Zack Bowman will spend his fifth NFL season with a division rival. Bowman, 27, has signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings. Bowman was drafted in 2008 and spent his first four years in Chicago. He was a starter, but lost his job in 2010 and has played little since then. His best NFL season came in 2009 when he made six interceptions...

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. Bowman fared well two seasons ago when he led the Chicago Bears with six interceptions. He then spent much of the last two campaigns in a reserve role as well as on special teams. Bowman had 15 tackles last season.

Minneapolis City Council Likes New Stadium Deal... For Now...

((HT: KARE-TV))There was a lot of concern that the new dome deal for the Minnesota Vikings and the city would just, kinda, die in committee and not make its way out of capitol discussions and/or committees...For now, there was an interesting twist to all of that talk...Mayor R.T. Rybak says he has the votes in teh affirmative to make it happen from his end...Go figure...Here'...

NFC North offseason power rankings: Bears on the rise?

When considering an NFC North Power Ranking you’re comparing possibly the toughest division in the NFL.  Although no longer the champs, the Green Bay Packers are still NFC heavyweights and as long as Aaron Rodgers is slinging the ball this team will remain dangerous.  The Detroit Lions made tremendous strides a season ago.  Matthew Stafford

NFL Bounty Gate: What’s appropriate punishment for Saints MLB Jonathan Vilma?

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has already gutted the Saints of much of their key leadership for the 2012 season, banishing HC Sean Payton for the duration, GM Mickey Loomis for half of it and assistant coach Joe Vitt for six games, in the wake of the league’s investigation into the team’s bounty program. However Goodell has, to this point, refrained from punishing any of the...
