  Vikings | T.J. Hockenson does not have timetable    Fri May 17, 10:07 AM

Minnesota Vikings TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) said he does not have a timetable for his return but has been making good progress in his recovery.

Footballguys view: We'll keep getting updates on Hockenson as the summer months get here. With a torn ACL and MCL in Week 16 last year, there's a good chance Hockenson will be on the PUP list to begin the 2024 regular season. The Vikings just signed Robert Tonyan to go with guys like Josh Oliver and Johnny Mundt.

  Vikings | Robert Tonyan taking his talents to Minnesota    Fri May 17, 10:07 AM

Free-agent TE Robert Tonyan (Bears) signed an undisclosed contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, May 16. LB Donovan Manuel was waived to make room for him on the roster.

Footballguys view: With TJ Hockenson (ACL, MCL) coming back from a late-season knee injury, the Vikings needed more depth in the tight end room. Hockenson will compete with guys like Josh Oliver and Johnny Mundt while Hockenson continues on his road to recovery.

  Vikings | J.J. McCarthy has smooth debut    Sat May 11, 12:32 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB J.J. McCarthy's rookie minicamp debut 'went smoothly,' ESPN's Kevin Seifert wrote on Friday, May 10. McCarthy had a few incompletions and an interception during 7-on-7 drills but was good otherwise.

Footballguys view: Ideally for the Vikings Sam Darnold will stay healthy and play well enough to start most, if not all of the season, which will give McCarthy time to develop in the incubator. The main concern in his draft profile was a lack of experience, so the more time they can give him to prepare for his first NFL start, the better.

  Vikings | Three rookies ink deals with Minnesota    Sat May 11, 09:54 AM

Minnesota Vikings sixth-round draft choice PK Will Reichard (Alabama), seventh-round draft choice OL Michael Jurgens (Wake Forest) and seventh-round draft choice DL Levi Drake Rodriguez (Texas A&M - Commerce) signed four-year contracts on Friday, May 10. Financial terms of the deals were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Reichard is the all-time leading scoring in college football history, and he was the first kicker drafted in April. He only has to beat out 2023 all-XFL kicker John Parker Romo to start for the Vikings this season.

  Vikings | T.J. Hockenson ahead of schedule    Mon May 6, 07:07 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from his torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to The Athletic's Alec Lewis.

Footballguys view: While he's ahead of schedule, there's no benefit to Hockenson rushing back and not being the player the team expects him to be or pays him to be. As USA Today reminded readers, the Vikings aren't in a "win now" scenario. Fantasy managers should expect a cautious approach. Instead, 2024 could have some shining moments, but 2025 will be full steam ahead.

  Vikings | Justin Jefferson asbent    Mon Apr 15, 02:37 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson was not in attendance for the start of voluntary offseason workouts Monday, April 15.

Footballguys view: It's not a surprise that Jefferson isn't on hand for the start of offseason workouts, which are voluntary. Of course, Jefferson is looking for a contract extension that is likely to set records for a receiver and perhaps any non-quarterback. It's likely his absence from offseason workouts is related to that.

  Vikings | Minnesota to meet privately with Jayden Daniels    Thu Apr 11, 02:16 PM

Louisiana State University QB Jayden Daniels is scheduled for a private meeting with the Minnesota Vikings in the near future, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Daniels is arguably the best quarterback in this draft class. He had 90 explosive plays (both as a passer and a runner) last year at LSU, and the Lamar Jackson comparisons are easy to see. The Vikings may fall in love with Daniels (everyone should) but we think they have their sights set on moving up for Drake Maye.
