Bridgewater says his comments about not wanting to play for the Browns were misinterpreted

By Mike Florio

After the draft, Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater told Dan Patrick that the former Louisville quarterback didn’t want to play for the Browns.

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.

Former Major League pitcher and pitching coach Tom House has branched out to football. And his roster of quarterback clients is increasing.

By Mike Florio

At one point, it seemed that Vikings running back Adrian Peterson eventually will want to leave the team due to its chronic inability to complement his skills with a potent passing game and, in turn, wins. Given the ongoing devaluation of the tailback position and a more recent no-one-is-sacred vibe to […]

Next week, although on a lesser scale, Chris Kluwe’s allegations against the Vikings will take center stage again. According to Chris Tomasson and Seth Boster of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings expect to receive the […]

By Mike Florio

As Vikings running back Adrian Peterson closes in on his 30th birthday, one of the best players in league history will be working with his third head coach at the NFL level. And while the presence of coach Mike Zimmer and offensive coordinator Norv Turner won’t make Peterson play any harder, […]

Report: U.S. Bank could get naming rights to Vikings’ new stadium

By Mike Florio

In Dallas, the Cowboys spent several years in their new stadium before selling the naming rights. In Los Angeles, a venue that has yet to be built — and likely never will be — has had naming rights sold for several years. In Minnesota, a middle ground between those two extremes […]
