How much is the Minnesota Vikings franchise really worth?

Last year the Minnesota Vikings won just five games and finished in the cellar of their division.

Adrian Peterson Unlikely to Play At All This Preseason

The Vikings regime may be different, but the narrative is the same in Minnesota: PROTECT ADRIAN PETERSON! (at least until the regular season opener.)

Minnesota Vikings: The difference Mike Zimmer will make

In Mike Zimmer’s first training camp as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, he has brought a breath of fresh air to Mankato, or at least the smell of sweaty football pads. His coaching style is in stark contrast to the Vikings last head coach, Leslie Frazier, in that he brings a lot more emotion and grit, and it’s shown in the Vikings’ practice.
