EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Late in the hours of the first day of the NFL Draft in April, the Minnesota Vikings made the biggest splash, adding on a third first-round pick after acquiring defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd and cornerback Xavier Rhodes earlier.
Minnesota couldn't pass on the opportunity to jump back in the first round and nab Tennessee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, sending four picks to the New England Patriots. The Vikings were the newsmakers in April, adding three first-rounders to a team that went 10-6 and made the playoffs last year.
Floyd (the No. 23 overall selection), Rhodes (No. 25) and Patterson (No. 29) will be important pieces to Minnesota's future, and the moves in April were about more than just seven games into the rookie seasons for each. But nearly halfway through their first year in the NFL, the three haven't made a big impact as the Vikings' season has deteriorated.
Seven of the 32 first-rounders from April's draft haven't starte...

As reluctant as I am to admit this, lest I attract the scorn of the interwebs for committing such an egregious affront to 1990s cinema, I have never seen “The Sandlot.” That does not mean that I cannot appreciate the effort of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and his wife, ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Ponder, […]The post Christian Ponder, wife Samantha, dress...
Today I was sitting around and just thinking of all the different trade possibilities they could come out by tomorrow’s trade deadline. One of them they keeps coming to my mind is Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings. Even though I know he’s not going anywhere I would be blown away to see what a […]
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Jared Allen waited through Tuesday's NFL trade deadline and wondered about his future with the Minnesota Vikings just like everyone else.
Allen wasn't sure if he would be traded to another team in the final season of the six-year contract he signed with Minnesota after being acquired in 2008. The Vikings reportedly did get involved in trade talks for...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Leslie Frazier said the Minnesota Vikings need some success in the "worst way" and he's making sure he's taking all measures to have a leg on up on the Dallas Cowboys this week.
Minnesota returned to practice Wednesday and Frazier said he knows who will start at quarterback, but he wasn't ready to announce this week's starter yet...
Josh Freeman didn’t have the best debut with the Vikings to put it nicely. He didn’t pass well and got a concussion for his troubles. On the flip side he only had two weeks to learn the offense. Freeman’s confidence is still high though:
“I feel like I can go out and compete and give our team a chance to win,” Freeman said. “This week, any week, I just want to prepare...
Early on, the Minnesota Vikings got the emotional boost they needed against the NFC North-leading Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, and then Green Bay proceeded to wear down Minnesota and drain any momentum the Vikings received from the opening kickoff return for a touchdown.In the end it was another surgical performance by Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers against the Vikings...
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Minnesota Vikings will go with Josh Freeman as their starting quarterback this week against the Cowboys as they continue to evaluate him.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and his wife, ESPN reporter Samantha Ponder, went throwback for their Halloween costumes. The Ponders donned costumes from the 1993 classic baseball movie “The Sandlot.” Christian went as the excitable Squints and Samantha as the vivacious Wendy Peffercorn. What a little pervert.

Christian Ponder may not even be 1/1000th of the football player that Tom Brady is, but the Minnesota Vikings quarterback and his better half know how to do Halloween the right way.

Growing up, my Grandmother always told me that if I was going to talk mess, that I had to be willing to stand behind what I said: good or bad. So at the conclusion of the 44-31 Packers victory, only one thing was on my mind…Greg Jennings must face Aaron Rodgers. So they talked…well it was more like Greg talked and Aaron listened. However, it gave me hope that a possible reconciliation...

Josh Freeman said he is clear of concussion symptoms and ready to go, although he hadn’t been told as of Monday if he would start Sunday. He reflected on his first start for the Vikings and his outlook going forward.
