Greg Jennings hands No. 1 receiver baton to Cordarrelle Patterson

By Michael David Smith

Bridgewater “bummed” Rookie Premiere forced him to miss OTAs

By Michael David Smith

The annual NFLPA Rookie Premiere is a mandatory event for top draft picks, but not all of them want to go. At least, they don’t all want to go to the Rookie Premiere when it conflicts with Organized Team Activities, as it often does. Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said […]

Only three men have owned the NFL’s all-time rushing record in the last half century, with Jim Brown retiring as the record holder in 1965, Water Payton breaking Brown’s record in 1984 and Emmitt Smith breaking Payton’s record in 2002. Brown thinks Adrian Peterson may be the next in line. […]

Draft needs: Minnesota Vikings

By Michael David Smith
