Vikings’ Jerome Felton suspended three games

AP

Jerome Felton, the Vikings’ starting fullback, will miss the first three games of the regular season.

The NFL has announced that Felton is suspended three games for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Felton, who was arrested for drunk driving last year, is Adrian Peterson’s lead blocker when the Vikings line up in the I formation. He played in all 16 games for the Vikings last season, starting seven.

Although Felton will be eligible to play in Thursday’s preseason finale, he must leave the team by Saturday and will not be permitted back at practice until Monday, September 23, following Minnesota’s Week 3 game against the Browns.

Felton was a Pro Bowler last year and signed a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Vikings this year.

  1. Hooligans.

    Well, there is nothing to do in Minnesota but fish and drink.

    Hell, they don’t even have a professional football team.

    No wonder these kids drink and drive.

  2. Bad news, but at least it looks like Brad Line will be sticking around for at least a little while. All he does it catch touchdowns!!

  3. If there’s nothing for Minnesotans to do but drink and fish, what does that say for Sconies? Anyhow, this is not good news. I hope Jerome Felton can sort out his problems. If not ,Rhett Ellison will be playing fullback this year.

  4. I think Zac Line just earned himself a roster spot…for at least three games.

    Not a good omen for the Vikings, especially with two road division games to kick off the season.

  5. No big holes for AP now. You will have to rely more and more on that thing called Ponder who has the arm strength of a six year old. Good luck with that one.

    Wow, you must really be a huge fan…

  7. Get him the lawyer for the Williams guys and a couple of hometown judge/fans and he’ll be able to stretch this out for three years minimum, no problem.

  8. Why is it you two (filthymcnasty and tokyosandblaster) are almost always the first posters on ANY VIKINGS article? And yet you both have the nerve to complain about Viking trolls! I know you’re both probably having fun but hypocritical much… Once and a while you actually contribute an intelligent comment but most of the time it’s just trash you post. Good stuff fellas.

  9. Filthymcnasty1

    I’m not a Vikings fan but I still feel the need to say that we shouldn’t accuse every great player of being dirty. AP seems more genuine and honest than Ryan Braun or lance Armstrong ever did. It would be a sad day to find out he’s juicing

    That’s Zach, not Brad. BTW, maybe someone should spike Ponder’s Gatorade, so he gets suspended. Sarcasm. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Cassel may be the better of the two. Impressive, huh? Not really. Neither are all-pro material.

  11. Who cares about Reeferman Felton,

    How on Earth can anyone say with a straight face that they believe Adrian Peterson isn’t using PEDS and or HGH?

    THE GUYS HEAD AND FACE HAVE LITERALLY CHANGED SHAPE OVER THE LAST 2 YEARS!!!

    ============================================

    Both of your fanbases are equally guilty in trolling articles about each others’ teams. That you would complain about that is just hypocritical.

  13. Between the suspensions for violating league rules and the multitude of season ending injuries suffered by many teams this year, they have the potential to change team fortunes, which is unfortunate.

  14. “i hope christian ponder would be suspended for the whole season smh”

    Did you see Cassel play last night? I was hoping he would provide some competition, and maybe even beat out Ponder. Or at least be a quality backup. But he looks worse than Ponder. Hope MBT can do something, but I’m not optimistic.

    For someone else, it’s ZACH Line. Not Brad.

    Agreed that both fan bases are guilty of trolling. But I think the word you were looking for was “ironic” not hypocritical. For it to be hypocritical of me, I would have to troll Packer articles, then complain about trolls. Now the word irony means… nevermind.

    Yeah, this would have been the feel good story of the year for Viking fans if we hadn’t ruined everything.

    Sacrilege.

  17. Mike Robinson of the seahawks is a better player than him and as much as Seattle fans love him, paying over a million and a half a year is ludicrous. Seahawks run the ball the most in the nfl and we’re top 5, they don’t even regard fullbacks at that rate.

    It’s a dying position that many hybrid TE a can play. Paying him that much is idiotic. Adrian Peterson does most of his work without him. AD is a monster, one of few players who I am certain with a minor downgrade at FB won’t affect his production much.

  18. How deserving for the few viking trolls. With all the insinuations we hear of Matthews from you now you have your second player this offseason, on top of the Williams boys before, not to mention the high probability that Peterson had used to get back on the field. Dare I say karma. Looking like it is a pretty dirty program over there trying to keep up with big brother accross the river. Try and cheat to keep up.

  19. Speaking of feel-good stories, me and tokyosandblaster get together to huff gas and tip cows every Saturday night – maybe do a little dancing. Email me for details. All guys are welcome.

  20. Looks like last year’s overachieving Viking team is destined to revert back to the 3-13 team they really are. No QB, and a one dimensional offense just got worse.

  21. Did anyone catch those 2 fans that ran onto the field during the vikings/49ers game? Whats funny is that those 2 fans combined for more yards than the 2 rookie RBs from Green Bay did.

    ——————–

    If you call off contra74 and thepvyharvin we’ll call off those two.

    But seriously, all the trolls (on both sides) annoy me.

  26. Rhett Ellison should benifit the most from this as should Chase Ford or Colin Anderson who can step in as the third TE while Ellison plays FB with Felton out. Both guys have looked good enough so far

  27. Did you see my post above about Whizzinators? See how I acted like I don’t know about those things (much less keep a couple with me at all times)? Convincing, right?

  28. @flashpatterson,

    As long your quarterback is named Ponder, we’ll always have something to talk about with your team.

    On another note, Viking fans need to stop with the”why does every packer fan post immediately on Viking stories?” Go on every packer story and I guarantee you there are at least five Viking trolls in the first ten posts. So enough with the crying. You don’t like us and we sure as hell don’t like you. That will never change. If you don’t like it, go complain to your mother.

  29. “There are a lot of references to him juicing here, this is regarding his DUI right?”
    Yes, but why let a perfectly good opportunity to make an ass of one’s self go to waste? Details are for smart people.

  30. Mattjay eloquently writes: “THE GUYS HEAD AND FACE HAVE LITERALLY CHANGED SHAPE OVER THE LAST 2 YEARS!!!”
    You do realize the picture at the top of the article is not AP/AD, right? (You’re welcome.)

  31. anyone saying that Cassel is better than Ponder needs their head examined. Ponder is not playing with #28 behind him. Wait and see what he does with #28 behind him. If he falters, then you can blame him. You can’t blame Ponder for preseason. It’s preseason folks.
    AND FOR ANYONE who doesn’t think he has arm strength……did you see the 1st play of the 49ers preseason game?
    If you did, then you will not say he has no arm strength. IDIOTS!!

    ZZZZzzzz…keep trying, you can do better than that.

  33. Too bad I posted initially before reading the posts above — the suspension is related to alcohol not what CMIII takes — not that driving drunk is a whole lot better.

  34. Only ended up getting charged with reckless driving………..

    so lets stop slandering the man

  35. Felton’s got 2 DUI’s – which in Green Bay stands for Driving To Lambeau. Oh, the letters don’t match up? I’m drunk anyway. Go Packers!!!!

  36. Vikings28:
    Yes, I saw the first play. Did you see it? He floated that ball up there like we used to do when we were kids practicing pop-flies. It was UGLY.
    And then just to drive the point home we got to watch Kaep, a guy taken in the same draft, deliver passes on a wire all night. It was a perfect study in contrasts. I am still holding out hope for ponder (because I don’t have a choice), but any optimism regarding his ability to ever pass for more than 150 yds in a game is very guarded. Arm strength is still a huge concern, as is his accuracy. Last night only provided evidence for that concern.

  37. I see eloquense comes to mind when you read my posts fake fi1thy. Too bad i cant say the same with your incoherent gibberish.

    Whats with the originality of the savvy viking posters using the same handles as the packer posters? I guess when you lack creativity and are inept at the verbal sparring thats what your left with, bravo! Its as weak as your team is on the field. See how its done?

  38. The Vikings are pathetic !
    Ship them to L A and get it over with, its not like they have a trophy case to move

    I’m pretty sure the Packers have more than the two fans I called out in my earlier post. Nobody said “every” Packer fan. I named two names and pointed out their hypocrisy. (Almost) Everyone can agree that these trolls are annoying, but it’s the hypocrisy that bothered me most. But I guess I’ll just go complain about it to my mother.

    “Whats with the originality of the savvy viking posters using the same handles as the packer posters?”

    I have to agree with you gbmickey. One off handles = lazy effort.

  43. I remember hearing Forbes magazine listed Felton as the #1 most overpaid player in the NFL (I believe Jared Allen was #2). Given that he just inked a 3-year, $7.5 million contract, I see the Vikes using this as an opportunity to see if Ellison or even Line can produce comparably in real game action. If so, cut that clown.

  44. I figured a Viking RB would be busted for substance abuse, I just had the wrong one in my mind.

    What is it with the Vikings and following the law? Ok, here is a quick quiz;

    1. Who is the only team to have their head coach busted for scalping Superbowl tickets?
    2. Which team was solely responsible for changes in the sample collection process because of the whizanator?
    3. NFL players hiring hookers is hardly news but what team should have been busted for flying them over state lines so Bryant McKinnie, among others, could have a little late night snack?
    4 Which team had their head coach busted for groping the administrative assistants?

    You can’t make this stuff up but all 4 are the same sleazeball team lead by their sleazeball owner who just lost a fraud case of his own.

    he was throwing into the wind in case u were not notified, that being said Ponder makes an above average o-line having a bad game look terrible. he has no pocket presence, stared down receivers, and double clutched waaaaay to much, even against 2nd string defense. Ponder makes the o-line look terrible and AP makes em look like all pros. Hope its a make or break year for Musgrave, play action without even proving a running game first, purely pathetic even for pre season.

    Contra, Rick, PVYharvin, barroomzero, & GenExJay

    I’d skip trolling on one viking article.

    The problem is, they all have 4 or 5 aliases, so it’s pretty much guaranteed that they’d just continue under a new name.

    Yes we have had more than our fair share of scandals over the years but Mark Chmura beats all of those combined, sorry.

    And didn’t the golden boy Paul Hornung get caught betting on games?

    I think you could pick just about any NFL team and point out the ridiculous scandals they have been through.

    So you are saying because those guys do it, it’s okay for you to do as well? That makes sense…

  51. There goes that 2500 yards prediction by AP down the crapper. He needs his FB. Plus Ponder will be even worse without Felton is pass protection.

  52. It don’t matter as long as AD can carry us. And it course Ponder has to make his passes in the game as well. Zach Line has a good chance he could make the team now.

  53. Weird, must have touched Matthews hair a little too long or something. Anyways, this is slightly more troubling than if the Rolling Stones lost their Tambourine player, anyone who is actually worried needs to calm down, we could field no FB and four lineman and still have the best running game in the division.

  54. I propose a PFT Viking fan/Packer Fan fantasy football league.

    Nice. I like the angle, but the spelling and grammar mistakes detract from the overall message. I will agree about the posters you speak of, but what they do is no worse than regurgitating the same tired, worn out phrases on every thread. Of course, the king was that guy (mounteddonkey or something like that….) that would copy and paste the same big long tribute to his idiocy on a regular basis.

    Then again, we have all come to expect hypocrisy from the GB faithful. After all, this is the fanbase that screams to the heavens that signing FAs is bad team building (Reggie White, Charles Woodson, Al Harris, Santana Dotson, Ryan Pickett….), how a 1st and two 3rds was a ridiculous price to pay for Allen (a 2nd and two 3rds for Matthews), and my personal favorite…. A pass-first team (referring to the Vikings of 1998-2004) would never be able to win without a running game to balance the offense.

    But wait…. I have to say something inflammatory now. See, I haven’t changed my handle since I first started posting on this site, and apparently I am on some kind of watch list, since 90% of what I post is removed and only the most childish stuff makes it through, so I guess I have to say something like…..

    This all stems from getting busted for going through the McDonald’s drive through last summer. This wouldn’t have been a problem if McD’s wouldn’t have started keeping its stores open all night to cater to McCarthy’s hourly snack runs.

  57. Don’t worry about Felton being out, AD will just block for himself. And still gain twice as many yards as both Packers backs combined.

  59. 224 of Peterson’s 348 carries last season came in a two-back set. He averaged a whopping 7.25 yards per carry in those situations, scoring eight of his 12 touchdowns. When he wasn’t in a two-back set? Peterson averaged 3.8 yards on his other 124 carries, for a total of 471 yards.

    Let that sink in.

    First three games, zero wins.

With all the insinuations we hear of Matthews from you now you have your second player this offseason, on top of the Williams boys before, not to mention the high probability that Peterson had used to get back on the field. Dare I say karma. Looking like it is a pretty dirty program over there trying to keep up with big brother accross the river. Try and cheat to keep up.

    “Dirty program”? He was suspended for DUI

    More baseless claims from that other state

    “Quite honestly, if I were to open a Packers article and NOT see a trolling comment by one of the big five (and I mean that they’re probably really fat):

    Contra, Rick, PVYharvin, barroomzero, & GenExJay

    I’d skip trolling on one viking article.

    The problem is, they all have 4 or 5 aliases, so it’s pretty much guaranteed that they’d just continue under a new name.”

    Tokyo:
    “Lolz” (as you quip). Quick to point the finger, rely on purposely misspelling others handles, and calling ’em fat. Again, Lolz.
    What’s really funny is that I just joined this Pft bloggin’ this spring. Although, I do not post on every cheese bay article, I’ve managed to make the “Big 5” by posting on the majority. As a rookie, somehow & someway I’ve managed to piss you off with wit. And for that, I’m honored.
    Btw, I do not have any aliases.
    But, whomever does, do not stop. It’s really “Lolz”.

    Comment on my page with your email. I won’t approve it, but I’ll set up a league. Tell larry.

  72. Kind of sucks. Hopefully the effects of whatever he was taking aren’t worn off by the time he can actually play. I want to see AP hit 2500.

  73. I just love the Packers/Vikings threads. Very entertaining. Pissed that I was too late for the Wizzonator comment.

    I sorta feel sorry for frustrated Vikings fans since they have no comebacks to the empty trophy case comments. That and the clownfest that was Les Steckel, Jerry Burns, Denny Green, Mike Tice, and Brad “Chilly” Childress (aka Favre’s chauffeur).

    I figured a Viking RB would be busted for substance abuse, I just had the wrong one in my mind.

    What is it with the Vikings and following the law? Ok, here is a quick quiz;

    1. Who is the only team to have their head coach busted for scalping Superbowl tickets?
    2. Which team was solely responsible for changes in the sample collection process because of the whizanator?
    3. NFL players hiring hookers is hardly news but what team should have been busted for flying them over state lines so Bryant McKinnie, among others, could have a little late night snack?
    4 Which team had their head coach busted for groping the administrative assistants?

    You can’t make this stuff up but all 4 are the same sleazeball team lead by their sleazeball owner who just lost a fraud case of his own.

    1. Aunteater

    2. Chmura’s babysitter

    3. Davenport’s bathroom

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    brewdogg , let’s not forget:

    4) Hornung’s bookie

    5) Jolly’s purple drank

    6) Numerous spousal/significant other abuse

    And my favorite…(7) drafting a serial killer.

    You can’t make this stuff up, but all 7 are the same sleaze-ball team, lead by their sleaze-ball management who sell worthless (might as well be fraudulent) stock to a clueless fan base.

    I can see why Packer fans go by the name “whatjusthappened”.

    If there’s nothing for Minnesotans to do but drink and fish, what does that say for Sconies? Anyhow, this is not good news. I hope Jerome Felton can sort out his problems. If not ,Rhett Ellison will be playing fullback this year.
    ———————————————————-

    Things to do for Sconies:
    1) Drink Beer
    2) Watch the Packers win
    3) Hunt
    4) Eat cheese
    5) Laugh at the Purple P8n#s Eaters, who think they have a better team, but have NEVER won a SB.
    6) Repeat

    Love it.

  77. Okay, so driving one mile away, just barely over the limit, for a cheeseburger, gets the same suspension as getting caught with 14 pounds of weed??? Not saying it’s okay, but Goodell, …C’MON MAN!!!

  78. About time a Vikings player got disciplined when they break the law. I’ll bet Roger Goodell was crying when he had to suspend one of his beloved Vikings players.

  79. The vikings have players busted all the time.

    They are constantly finding new ways to embarrass the state of Minnesota and the NFL.

    They did not kill any of their players in training camp this year, didn’t have a criminal cruise so far this season, and so far no child abuse incidents or attempted murder of a girlfriend, this season they haven’t had a player threaten a neighbor with a firearm, plus it is too early for two of them to go over a 100 mph on icy roads.

    So far their stadium hasn’t collapsed, no one was raped at a snowmobile event, and so far no one was stopped at the airport with a Whizzinator, nor has any of the coaching staff violated their pledge not to scalp tickets to other teams games. As far as we know the coach has not painted his house green and gold and no player has been arrested while attempting to evade police.

    Just because all of these things have happened in the past, doesn’t mean the vikings won’t find a new way to humiliate anyone who still might support them.

    The vikings have absolutely no sense of shame.
