Ten Vikings Who Could be on the Bubble | #10 Michael Mauti

At linebacker the starters are pretty much set with Barr, Kendricks, and Greenway. Behind those three the only locks (or closest thing you can get to a lock) appear to be Audie Cole and Gerald Hodges. So when you look deep at the roster, Mauti’s real competition to make the final roster will be some of the younger guys and FA signings like Brandon Watts (7th rounder in 2014), Edmond...

While adequate, it was a major drop-off from his 80+-tackle seasons of years past.Reports indicate that Greenway is restructuring his contract...

Bears Vs. Vikings: Mushroom Stamp Winner

It’s finally here! The last poop stamp of the season. All year long, Vikings players (and some real ****-head coaches!) have fought over the opportunity to crowned with a brown smudge atop their foreheads. For some, it was a remarkable achievement. For others, it was an uneditable mark. Of poop. But, they deserved it. For sucking. If this was a normal year, Adrian Peterson would...

Jets vs. Vikings: Mushroom Stamp Winner

OK, obviously I gave it to Jarius Wright, as you can tell by the picture above, but it could have easily gone to any of the guys below: - Teddy Bridgewater: The rookie strikes again late in the game, both with impressive play with 23 seconds left to get the Vikings into a game winning field goal try (which ****-head Blair Walsh missed), but then also with his audible after recognizing...

Hodges done watching, now gets his chance in place of Greenway

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. --€“ As Chad Greenway went about his daily business as the leader of the Minnesota Vikings' linebacker group, not far behind was Gerald Hodges. Hodges tried not to bother Greenway, the dean of Minnesota's defense. Instead, Hodges watched intently as Greenway prepared for practice and put himself through the grind to play in 115 straight games. Greenway was a...

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, Hodges showed...

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. Most of the linebackers who will comprise the back end of this 4-3 defense fared better than their comrades on the defensive line did. Of course, in some respects, that’s like saying they died slightly more slowly. There...

Linebacker situation still unclear for Vikings
