I'd be surprised if Alex Boone wasn't seen as the OL leader. He's certainly vocal enough!


True. But team leaders are often those with seniority on a team, are the oldest player, or who play positions that require leadership skills; e.g. QB, MLB, Pitcher, Catcher, etc. And you don't often see a 'leader' change teams in free agency. We will likely see either Berger, Boone, or Bradford emerge as the leader of the offense in 2017 as all three now have at least 1 year experience with the Vikings.

Brian Robison figures its time to think about retirement. The Vikings defensive end agreed to rework his contract last month, giving him two years remaining. He said Friday that 2018 likely will mark his final NFL season. Robison, who turns 34 on April 27, has played 10 seasons, all with Minnesota. Two more will make it a dozen.

Robison: I really do believe that probably at the end of those two years, it will be it. Itll be about my time to call it, but well see how I feel when I get there. But I would say that more than likely, that will probably be the time that Im going to have to lay things to the side and get ready for life after football. This solidifies me to be able to retire as a Minnesota Viking.

I'm glad that we still have guys that want to stay here their entire career and an organization that lets them.

I'm guessing Adrian still wishes he was under contract with MN.

Not saying much. Dom Capers defense over the years has been nothing short of horrible over the years.

I think he is a much better position to succeed than in GB. GB moved him all over and couldnt seem to figure out what to do with him, a nickel interior pass rusher seems like his best fit.

Tom Pelissero - The #Vikings are exercising their fifth-year option on LB Anthony Barr, source said.

https://twitter.com/TomPelissero/status/859122559601823748

Tom Pelissero - #Vikings informed Teddy Bridgewater theyre declining his option, source said. No setback. No nerve issue. Just cant injury-guarantee him

Has to be the most overpaid salary for a 4-3 off ball OLB. I hope MN can trim that figure down a bit with an extension. He's simply not a game changer, his position severely limits him. Maybe he rebounds and can redefine it a bit, but I'd be more comfortable paying around 8 million per year unless he has a truly breakout season.

Agreed, but only one year at that amount won't (hopefully) limit what Rick wants to do too much.
