Rodgers thinks young quarterbacks of bad teams should sit and wait

By Mike Florio

Nine years ago, the Packers used a first-round pick on quarterback Aaron Rodgers because Brett Favre already was nearly three years into his will-I-or-won’t-I-retire routine. For the next three years, Rodgers sat the bench behind Favre, until the Packers pushed Favre early in the 2008 offseason to commit to whether […]

Adrian Peterson: Turning 30 ‘Doesn’t Apply To Me’

By Jonathon Sharp

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Adrian Peterson is staring 30 years old right in the face, and he knows the stigma that number carries for NFL running backs.

He knows that most running backs these days seem to hit a wall at 30, experiencing a steep decline in production that quickly […]

Vikings claim Terrell Manning off waivers

By Josh Alper

It won’t make the kind of splash that signing Brett Favre did, but the Vikings have added another former member of the Packers to their roster after he spent a season playing in the AFC. The Vikings have been awarded linebacker Terrell Manning off of waivers one day after he was […]

Mackey: Vikings retread QBs since 1993, ranked

By pmackey@1500espn.com

A retread quarterback is, for the purposes of this experiment, defined as a quarterback who previously started for a different team – but one who was acquired without giving up valuable assets (such as high draft picks).

The Minnesota Vikings have had a ton of retread quarterbacks over the past two decades. […]

By dwetmore@1500espn.com

MINNEAPOLIS – Greg Jennings had a career day Sunday.

Jennings, 30, played for years with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. Sunday, he set a career-high by catching 11 passes from the Vikings’ stated backup quarterback Matt Cassel.

His 163 yards bested Cris Carter’s old franchise record for most receiving yards against the […]

Sunday’s Vikings-Packers matchup will see historic turn in the rivalry

By dwetmore@1500espn.com

Even though it doesn’t feel like it, Sunday’s Vikings-Packers game will be of some historic significance. The Packers have announced that Scott Tolzien will start this week in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers. And in all likelihood, Brett Favre won’t start for the Vikings.

That makes this weekend the first game […]

When Favre says he’s done, this time he means it

By Mike Florio

It’s become difficult to take Brett Favre at his word when it comes to whether he’s truly done playing football. Numerous times in the past, he has said he’s done and he has returned. But when Favre said Thursday there’s no way he’s coming back, he likely meant it. Giving Favre’s […]

Favre puts to rest speculation that he’ll return

By Mike Florio

If we told you last week that a former Jets quarterback would on October 10 unretire again and wear No. 4 in New York, most would have guessed Brett Favre over David Garrard.

But it was Garrard, not Favre, who returned to the NFL on Favre’s 44th birthday. And Favre says he […]

Roethlisberger, winless Steelers feel the Vikings' turnover-prone pain

By akrammer@1500espn.com

The NFL probably didn’t think pinning the league MVP against a two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback in the annual London spectacle would result in an 0-3 vs. 0-3 matchup.

But the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers are both winless after three games, due in part to 10 and nine turnovers, respectively.

“We’ve turned […]
