Former Vikings’ WR wanted to fight coach Brad Childress

To say that former Minnesota Vikings receiver Troy Williamson and head coach Brad Childress did not get along would be an understatement. In his final season with the Vikings, Williamson’s grandmother died. When the receiver left the team for the funeral, Childress took a game check away from the player. The situation got so bad that Williamson reportedly said that he wanted...

Cordarrelle Patterson: Sometimes I didn’t work hard enough

The Vikings didn’t pick up their fifth-year option on wide receiver/kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson’s contract this offseason, leaving the 2013 first-round pick on track for free agency after the season. If Patterson is going to generate a robust market for his services, he’ll need to be more than the kick return specialist he was in 2015.…

Minnesota Vikings way too early 53-man roster predictions

Way too much can happen between now and the beginning of the regular season. The writers at vikings32 will try our best even though it is early. The Vikings have many interesting decisions to make throughout training camp and...

Dez Bryant says no rookie hazing for Ezekiel Elliott

As Laquon Treadwell showed us earlier this month, rookies are often the subject of hazing by veteran members of the team. It's a rite of passage of sorts. However, in Dallas, it sounds like the fourth overall pick in this year's NFL Draft won't be subjected to such treatment. TMZ's cameras recently caught up with Dez Bryant, who said there will be no hazing or pranks directed at...

Early roster preview: Minnesota Vikings cornerbacks

The Minnesota Vikings have ten cornerbacks on their current roster. Lucky for them, a team can never have too many cornerbacks. 10 total defensive backs will likely be kept on the 53-man roster into the season. Four to six of those 10 spots will likely belong to players who are specifically cornerbacks. The cornerbacks position is one of the most diverse on the team in terms of experience...

Adrian Peterson says he's tired of 'boring' offseason work

Adrian Peterson loves the game of football, but he doesn’t love the NFL offseason and would rather not participate in training camp with the Minnesota Vikings if he can get away with it.

Joe Berger on the bubble to make Minnesota Vikings roster?

Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Joe Berger started at center last season. Although he in the middle of the line last season, he is currently listed as a guard on the team’s roster. His veteran versatility is exactly what makes him an asset to Minnesota – or does it? Now in his 12th season, Berger could find himself without a job if the Vikings choose young, specialized depth...

Vikings rookie Moritz Boehringer struggling with ‘mental’ aspect of NFL

When the Minnesota Vikings selected German wide receiver Moritz Boehringer in the sixth-round of the 2016 NFL Draft, everyone knew it was going to be an uphill battle as he attempted to transition to the NFL as the first player ever drafted directly out of Europe. Early on in his first NFL minicamps, it is clear that Boehringer is struggling to adjust. The wide receiver has continuously...

Vikings troll Laquon Treadwell with great prank

It didn’t take long for the Minnesota Vikings to haze rookie wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater teamed up with veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph, figuring that the big target has seen a few things in his day and would know how to prank Treadwell on his 21st birthday. Judging by this post on Rudolph’s Instagram, I’d say they did a pretty good job. Check...

Harrison Smith could be worth every penny for the Minnesota Vikings

Eric Berry’s franchise tag notwithstanding, Harrison Smith just became the highest-paid safety in the NFL. That might feel odd to some, since Smith doesn’t have the same name recognition as superstar safeties Berry, Earl Thomas, Jairus Byrd and Tyrann Mathieu. But the underrated Minnesota Vikings defensive back might actually be well worth the five-year, $51.25 million extension...
