From all-star games to free agency to the draft to the start of the preseason, the key dates for the NFL offseason.
There is considerable debate as to the extent of the economic impact a Super Bowl has on a city, but much of the money the State of Minnesota invested in U.S. Bank Stadium will re-enter the local economy when Super Bowl LII comes to Minneapolis next year.
As we march toward the end of the NFL season, all but four teams are busy evaluating their rosters and planning for next year.
For the first time since Mike Zimmer gutted the Vikings’ defensive roster upon arrival in 2014, the defense could see some significant turnover.
With little fanfare, athletic director Leo Lewis attends to the smallest details, all in the name of supporting student-athletes who often get little support at home.
Barr, the former ninth overall pick, played more than ever in his third NFL season, but didn’t make the same splash plays Vikings followers became accustomed to seeing from the linebacker.
Vikings reportedly will hire Kennedy Polamalu as running backs coach
Polamalu, who played fullback collegiately at USC, was the offensive coordinator at UCLA for only the 2016 season and was not retained.
The biggest goal of the Minnesota Vikings’ offseason is to fix their offensive line.
It appears the shake ups are continuing for the Minnesota Vikings’ coaching staff.
The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly hired a running backs coach and it may be working toward filling their quarterbacks-coach position.
Tuesday is a day that any longtime Vikings fan will remember with a heavy heart. In its own way, it was tantamount to a death in the family - a grim reminder that not all anniversaries are good.
Mike Zimmer still doesn’t have much of a timeline on Teddy Bridgewater’s return to the Minnesota Vikings.
Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer joined ESPN Sunday morning and discussed the Sam Bradford trade and Teddy Bridgewater’s recovery.
For the majority of the season, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer avoided giving a direct answer about the struggles of linebacker Anthony Barr. He said that the former ninth-overall pick was playing well, he just wasn’t making, “splash” plays as he had in 2015.
There have been just a handful of Vikings players that have dominated how defensive coaches approach Minnesota. The Vikings could be on the cusp of losing one of those players.
It doesn’t matter which statistical category you prefer – whether it’s points per game, yards per play, total yards, touchdowns, scoring percentage etc. – the Minnesota Vikings are consistently at the bottom of the list in every offensive ranking.
As part of one of the team's stronger units, defensive end Danielle Hunter broke through as a potential star in the making.
Which Vikings have made the Pro Bowl under Mike Zimmer?
A turbulent season for the Vikings offense began with Teddy Bridgewater’s severe knee injury and ended with Sam Bradford being named their starter moving forward.
Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph has been picked as an injury replacement on the NFC Pro Bowl team, for Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams.
The Minnesota Vikings got a fifth player in the Pro Bowl after Linval Joseph was selected as an injury replacement.
When the Pro Bowl rosters were originally announced, Linval Joseph’s teammates were surprised his name was not on the list. Well, now it is. The Minnesota Vikings announced Thursday that Joseph was named to the Pro Bowl, replacing Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who is unable to participate due to an injury.
The Vikings got a lot from two smaller contracts and not enough from their top picks at wide receiver in 2016.
Linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks and cornerbacks Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander have all been chosen in the top two rounds. But they weren't on a list of the NFL's top young players.
The Vikings could look to lock up some of these players before March 7, when free agents are allowed to start talking to other NFL teams.
When the Minnesota Vikings drafted Danielle Hunter in the third round, fans and media who Googled his college stat sheet were confused. Why would they pick a pass rusher who only managed 1.5 sacks during his junior year at LSU?
A snap that never got there from Nick Easton was one of many bad snaps in the NFL, and the Minnesota Vikings made the "worst plays of 2016" for a pregame tackle, too.
One of the bigger changes in the Minnesota Vikings offense as 2016 rolled on was the proliferation of the shotgun offense. That came as bad news for fullback Zach Line, a pending free agent who may be a man without a country.
Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards has been selected as one of the two head coaches for the East-West Shrine game on Jan. 21.
Kyle Rudolph’s career year for the Vikings was a bright spot, but not enough to boost a toothless red zone offense that ranked 31st in points per red zone drive.
Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards will serve as one of the two head coaches in the 92nd annual East-West Shrine Game, a college all-star game that helps showcase draft-eligible prospects to NFL scouts.
Turner, the son of former Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner, was on coach Mike Zimmer’s original Vikings staff in 2014 and played a role in the development of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
This is the first in an eight-part series reviewing the 2016 Vikings and looking ahead by position.
It took eight months, but Taylor Symmank finally has made the Vikings’ roster.
Midway through the 2016 season, Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner resigned after two poor performances by his group, now only days after the season’s end, MMQB’s Albert Breer is reporting the team have parted ways with his son, quarterbacks coach Scott turner.
Pat Shurmur faced quite the uphill battle in 2016. He took over as Minnesota Vikings’ offensive coordinator after Norv Turner resigned midway through the year and inherited a team that had lost its starting left and right tackles and future Hall of Fame running back.
Scott Turner came along with his father Norv when Mike Zimmer assembled his coaching staff three years ago. Two months after Norv called it quits during the season, Scott was let go Monday as the Vikings move forward with a new philosophy of offense.
Minnesota Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon talks about his strong season and his plans.
It looks like, barring a change in the current winds of the offseason, Adrian Peterson is more likely to have played his last game for the Vikings. If he leaves, where will he land?
The Vikings are going to remove the word interim from Pat Shurmur’s job title. Does that mean the end of the line for Adrian Peterson in Minnesota?
It doesn’t take the Washington Post’s best investigative journalists to tell you that the Minnesota Vikings’ offensive line struggled mightily in 2016. But as we look toward the future of the offensive line, there are a number of questions that must be answered.
ESPN’s Ben Goessling is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings will remove the interim tag from Pat Shurmur and name him their offensive coordinator.
Be it here or elsewhere, star running back Adrian Peterson faces a big pay cut.
Those with good memories recall the concern when the 4-0 Vikings were going without either starting offensive tackle. That should have been the siren that went off because health and success seem to go hand in hand.
Silver linings are few and far between for the Vikings’ 28th-ranked offense limited by both player and coaching turnover during the 2016 season. But Adam Thielen provided one.
