Report: Vikings-Eagles “pretty likely” on Thanksgiving

The third game of the Thanksgiving schedule could be coming into focus. After a report earlier this week that the two early holiday games would include Bears-Lions and Dolphins-Cowboys, we may have an idea of the prime time matchup. Via Michael Rand of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, an Eagles trip to play the Vikings appears [more]

Could Case Keenum end up back in Minnesota?

With Joe Flacco in, Case Keenum is likely out in Denver. Could Keenum work his way back to Minnesota? That possibility will be quickly dismissed because the Vikings have quarterback Kirk Cousins under contract for two more years, at fully-guaranteed compensation packages of $28 million in 2019 and $30 million in 2020. But let’s not [more]

What’s next for Case Keenum?

Case Keenum was right to not worry about the Broncos drafting a quarterback in round one. With Joe Flacco and his $18.5 million base salary arriving in Denver, the Broncos won’t need Keenum and his $18 million base salary. So the question becomes where will Keenum go? Trading him would result in a $3 million [more]

Stefon Diggs hopes Vikings fans will be patient

The first year of the Kirk Cousins experiment didn’t go well, with the Vikings regressing from a final four team to one of the 20 franchises that watch the playoffs from home. In a recent visit to the PFT Live set at the Super Bowl, Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs was asked to make the case [more]

Vikings add Rick Dennison, Marwan Maalouf to coaching staff

The Vikings have finalized their coaching staff for next season and it includes a longtime assistant of new assistant head coach/offensive advisor Gary Kubiak. Rick Dennison has been hired as the team’s offensive line coach/run game coordinator. Dennison spent four years on the Texans staff when Kubiak was the head coach in Houston, moved to [more]

Kirk Cousins has been “frustrated” all offseason

The Vikings spent all that money to sign Kirk Cousins so he could get them beyond a playoff berth. So when they didn’t get to the postseason at all, there was plenty of disappointment, especially for Cousins himself. Via Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Vikings quarterback said during an appearance on the [more]

Everson Griffen could be a cap casualty in Minnesota

Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen still has four more years on his contract, but he may be gone from Minnesota soon. Griffen has an $11.7 million cap hit this season, and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune pegs Griffen as a possible cap casualty for the Vikings, who are among the NFL’s most cap-strapped teams. It’s easy to [more]

How long will Jared Goff be the Rams’ quarterback?

Fresh from a disappointing performance in Super Bowl LIII, it’s fair to ask whether the Rams will keep quarterback Jared Goff beyond the expiration of his rookie deal. Especially given that Goff’s remaining contract matches the duration of another contract that, once expired, could attract the attention of Rams coach Sean McVay. Goff has one [more]

Vikings could be moving Riley Reiff to guard

The Vikings have spent plenty of money trying to fix their offensive line issues. They just may not have spent it well. According to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings are considering moving left tackle Riley Reiff to guard. The Vikings signed the former Lion to a five-year, $58.75 million contract in 2017, [more]

Patriots listed as early favorite to repeat by one bookmaker

The Patriots have the best odds to win Super Bowl LIV at 6-1, according to betonline. The Chiefs, though, are close behind at 7-1. The Rams are the favorites in the NFC at 7-1, followed by [more]

Final 2019 NFL Draft order is settled

OK, football season’s over, what do we do next? Oh yeah, football season. With the Patriots winning Super Bowl LIII last night, they locked up the 32nd and final spot in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Rams will own the 31st overall pick. It’s that time of year (the Scouting Combine is later this month). [more]

Wade Wilson dies at 60

Former NFL quarterback Wade Wilson, who spent 19 years in the league and many thereafter as a coach, has died. He was 60. The Dallas Cowboys have announced the passing of Wilson. An eighth-round pick of the Vikings in 1981, Wilson spent eleven years in Minnesota, one with the Falcons, two with the Saints, three [more]

Huge day coming from Atlanta

Thursday will be our biggest day yet from Atlanta, or arguably from any Super Bowl city. PFT Live will feature Chris Simms and Dan Katz a/k/a Barstool Big Cat (if we can get him in), and guest appearances by 49ers tight end George Kittle and Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs. (Giants running back Saquon Barkley possibly [more]

Tom Brady risks joining the wrong kind of exclusive club

When a quarterback starts nine Super Bowls during his career, he’s bound to accomplish plenty of other things that few if any other quarterbacks have accomplished. For Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Sunday’s game presents a rare opportunity. If his team loses, he’ll be only the fourth quarterback in Super Bowl history to lose back-to-back starts [more]

Anthony Barr sees endless possibilities in free agency

Anthony Barr will have a Vikings helmet on his head in Sunday’s Pro Bowl and it may be the final time that the linebacker wears that logo. Barr is set for unrestricted free agency in March after playing out his fifth year with the Vikings and he said from Orlando this week that he’s “not [more]
