The NFL waiver wire, in short: 'A cut player with less than four years of service time is placed on waivers. All 31 other teams can place a claim on the player and add him to their 53-man roster. If the player goes unclaimed through waivers, they are free to sign with any team as an unrestricted free agent. The waiver wire order is identical to the 2014 NFL Draft order, so the...
After their strong showing against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, the Minnesota Vikings finished the preseason 4-0, the seventh time the Vikings have gone undefeated in the preseason during their 54 year history.
This preseason has illuminated some surprises, both good and bad, but has shown us what to expect out of the Vikings in the 2014 season.
Everson Griffen is the real deal...
The Vikings roster is still taking shape and we can officially welcome 2 new members. Minnesota was awarded both tight end MarQueis Gray and offensive tackle Mike Harris off waivers.
Gray is a familiar face around Minnesota as he was a Gopher from 2009 to 2012. The former Gopher has bounced around a bit from the 49ers to the Browns, last year he saw time on the Browns active roster...
2013 was a pretty awful season for the Minnesota Vikings, especially on the road. The Vikings finished the season 5-10-1 and went 0-7-1 on the road. Despite bringing in Greg Jennings to give the team a playmaker, the passing game was a disaster. This was largely due to the fact that the Vikings used three different starting quarterbacks during the season, which included Josh Freeman...

With the final cuts in the books the roster appears to be set for rookie head coach Mike Zimmer and the Minnesota Vikings. Biggest surprises that stick out to me is rolling with 2 TE’s (for now), keeping 2 FB’s, and the cuts of Reisner, Crocker, and Coleman. While this won’t be the roster the Vikings end the season with it will surely be what they start the season with (barring...
Today the Minnesota Vikings started releasing players to get to 53. Their first cut was Fred Evans. @ProFootballTalk: Vikings’ decision to cut DT Fred Evans likely means DT Linval Joseph will be ready to go for Week One Vikings cuts: DT Fred Evans
The post Vikings release Fred Evans; Cut list updates here appeared first on NFL Draft Diamonds.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Vikings have released veteran DT Fred Evans on Saturday.
The Vikings brought Evans back on a one-year deal worth $1 million back in March, but it appears as though they prefer some of their younger options at interior defensive tackle.
Evans, 30, appeared in 14 games and totaled 20 tackles and a forced fumble for the Vikings in 2013....

Adrian Peterson has enjoyed countless accolades for his incomparable individual achievements on the football field during his seven years as running back with the Minnesota Vikings, a still-relevant career that already has established him as arguably one of the greatest running backs of all-time. But he’d be willing to trade it all in, the awards, […] The post Adrian Peterson...
