Vikings LB Hodges settling in after 'wake-up call' first season

MANKATO, Minn. --€“ Gerald Hodges arrived at Minnesota Vikings' training camp with a different look this season, but it had nothing to do with putting on, or losing, weight. Hodges hadn't transformed his body as the stories often appear from training camp. Instead, Hodges' change isn't noticeable from watching him on the field. Speaking with reporters on Wednesday...

Vikings Training Camp – Walkthrough Day 2

Day 2 at Vikings Training Camp was a tad chilly and windy. The conditions weren’t ideal, but it gave me a chance to see all three quarterbacks’ throws as they zinged through the air. It looks like it’ll brighten up this afternoon and the guys might actually get their sweat on. The players trickled on the field late this morning and didn’t appear awake as the horn sounded...

Minnesota Vikings camp preview: linebackers

Earlier we took a look at the defensive line heading into camp and as promised, we now take a look at the other half of the defensive front: the linebackers.

Frustrated, not angry, Hodges biding his time

Gerald Hodges went through a similar process in college, waiting and learning his first year behind two more experienced players that have gone on to become accomplished NFL starters. Hodges hasn’t gotten a chance on defense with the Vikings yet, but he should at least be active more often after the season-ending knee injury to Desmond Bishop. Hodges talked about his season to date.

Training Camp Access Day 4

I know… I know… right about now I should be live tweeting from training camp and writing up your updates from today's practice. Instead, today is Walkthrough Wednesday (or time to go back to work in layman terms).
