The Vikings went from having a former MVP at running back to being next to last in the league in rushing, so they’re clearly still looking for answers.
According to Ben Goessling of ESPN.com, the Vikings had former Patriots running back Jonas Gray in for a workout Friday.
Gray also worked out for the Dolphins this week, as he’s making the rounds trying to hustle up a job.
It seems like forever ago when Gray ran for 201 yards and four touchdowns for the Patriots against the Colts, because he quickly fell off the map and hasn’t run for more than 62 yards in a game or really held steady work since. He’s spent time with the Dolphins and the Jaguars.
The Vikings haven’t gotten what they’d hoped from Matt Asiata, Jerick McKinnon and even Ronnie Hillman, ranking 31st in the league with just 71.9 yards per game. Only the Giants are worse in that category.
