Sounding more like he will be "the guy" this year.


I don't have a problem if we don't prioritize RB in the draft, and delay it to 2018. I'd prefer the high picks dedicated to RG/LB/OT/DT/SS anyways


One thing to look at anyway is if he plays well we may not even have to prioritize it heavy in 2018.

I still expect a RB taken, just not sure where. I've had them in mocks I've thrown around from round 2 all the way to round 5. It's a deep class, even in round 6 you could find a "capable" RB that can handle split time with McKinnon if Murray does go down to an injury.

I like CJ Ham, but I just don't see him sticking as our 3rd back on the roster.

Without doing any research, I knew Price had #25.

My guess is he switched back to #39 so Murray could take #25

Cut him some slack...

It's difficult to keep up with the aggressive competition in the uni-number market where Price changes often.

Hopefully it was minor. Guessing it was since he will be able to return by training camp.

Ankle injuries are always bothersome and can linger. He also fractured his ankle back in 2013 in his rookie year.

Makes me guess we will target a RB early when we already have one RB with injuries. Vikings know McKinnon isn't a 3 down back. They can't chance having him go down and depend on practice squad type players to perform as an active RB.

Hopefully ole bob is on a roll with some good luck. A lot of money on the line in the past two days. Sidney Jones, and now Murray.

I was a bit worried, when I first saw him, that he might be injury prone...

Ian Rapoport @RapSheet
#Vikings RB Latavius Murray's ankle injury was described as bone spurs. This is why he took visits: Teams could take a first-hand look at it

So, usually if you get bone spurs, it is caused by degenerative arthritis or tendinitis.

Not exactly the greatest sign for a RB. Caused delay in signing, leading to a "prove it" type deal.

RB is for sure not out of the question in round 2 or 3.

Mike Zimmer at Owners Meeting:

"Latavius said it best, he's not going in there to replace Adrian.''

on Latavius not wearing No. 28. "The thing about the jersey I thought was impressive.''

said Latavius Murray ankle surgery was basically a "clean-up deal.'' Said no surgery is minor but not concerned

said he doesn't necessarily know if Latavius Murray is a "three-down back.'' Said none of his comments meant Peterson wasn't.
