Vikings Trade 1st Round Pick To Tampa Bay! At Least I Think They Should

I love to follow the drama that is the NFL Draft.  I have been reading so many mock drafts that have the Vikings taking the very safe and good pick in OT Matt Kalil.  Then there are those who think the Vikings should roll the dice with flashy WR Justin Blackmon.

Peterson Rehab Has Vikings Optimistic

I realize football is a ways away, but with the draft approaching it's a hot topic.  For Minnesota Vikings fans, Adrian Peterson's knee will now always be a hot topic because he is such a crucial part of the any success the team may have.  You take him out of the mix and you have, umm..give me a minute....Okay, you have Percy Harvin but nobody fears the Vikings offense at all without Peterson in there.

For us in the Northland, it's a road trip to see this team in person so we at least want think we have a chance.  With that said, the news regarding Adrian Peterson is met with guarded enthusiasm.

 
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier delivered the update Wednesday

Vikings’ Chris Cook Found Not Guilty On All Counts

This should make it a lot easier for the Vikings to keep Cook on the team if they so desire.  Do you think the Vikings should welcome him back with open arms or should there be some type of penalty for putting himself in this situation?

Vikings Agree To Terms With Tight End Carlson

While not a blockbuster deal, the Vikings have signed a free agent. Perhaps they are looking at the successful Patriots offense that features 2 talented tight ends and a great slot receiver in Wes Welker.  This signing gives them 2 young and talented tight ends to put on the field with Percy Harvin.

State Contribution To New Vikings Stadium: $398 Million

I think today brought fantastic news in that the Minnesota Vikings are as close as they've been to staying put and having a new facility that will help the entire state.  There are still some political obstacles to get over, but the momentum is positive.

 
After days of intense, closed-door meetings, DFL Gov. Mark Dayton and the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday morning announced an agreement for what the governor called, "a new people's stadium" in downtown Minneapolis.

Republicans: Vikings Should Only Get Loan For New Stadium

Well, this should go over like a fart in church.  If a pro sports team is of no benefit to the state, then all the businesses and people that benefit from having a professional franchise should not have to pay taxes.  Perhaps then these pantloads would see just how big of a benefit such franchises are to the state.

 
 

Saying that they had the only Minnesota Vikings stadium plan that could pass the Legislature, three Republican senators offered a plan

Tentative Vikings Stadium Deal Is Set

The latest update in 'As The Stadium Turns'.  It appears there is a tentative in place but, as you will see, there are a couple big hurdles to overcome before there would be an official green light.  Of course, this is an election year too so you never know what crazy things will happen.

 
Minneapolis, the state and the Minnesota Vikings have reached a tentative agreement on a new, $975 million stadium on a site at or near the Metrodome and on how to divide the costs, multiple sources said Friday.

Under the preliminary deal, the city would contribute

Minneapolis Rallies Support For New Vikings Stadium

Another update on the soap opera I like to call 'As The Stadium Turns..'
In an effort to show support for a new stadium to both legislators and fence-sitting City Council members, Minneapolis city, labor and business leaders joined together Monday to underscore that a new Vikings stadium would mean 7,500 union jobs for Minnesota's hard-pressed construction industry.

Will Viking’s Running Back Adrian Peterson Choose A New Jersey Number?

Apparently, AP is bored while he is recovering from knee surgery, but he is proving to be thrifty.  He was thinking it was time for a change in jersey numbers.  GREAT!  I own TWO, not one, but TWO of his "28" jerseys.  BUT, he doesn't want to spend the money, so we're good, at least for now.  Here's his reasoning according to Fox Sports.com.

Wilf ‘Optimistic’ About Metrodome Site, But Problems Remain

Of course, don't rule out Arden Hills either.  It's crunch time for the Vikings stadium decision.

 
Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf emerged from a three-hour meeting Wednesday in Gov. Mark Dayton’s office and said he was “optimistic” that the team’s new stadium could be built at the Metrodome.

But Wilf, the governor, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and others painted a disjointed picture of how much progress was being made toward a new stadium, with Rybak again insisting that the city would not participate financially unless there was also monetary relief for Minneapolis’ Target Center.
