    Vikings back receiver Floyd's alcohol in tea claim

    Minnesota Vikings officials are backing receiver Michael Floyd's fight against a house arrest violation that could land him in jail, one he says was caused by tea that contains alcohol. Floyd said in a sworn affidavit, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press newspaper, that the Vikings encourage players to drink kombucha tea as a health drink, saying it is served "on tap" at the team's headquarters. Floyd is fighting a ruling that he violated terms of his house arrest by accidentally ingesting alcohol contained in the tea.

Who should be on the field to maximize output in these situations? 1st Down The Vikings struggled to generate first downs in 2017, partly because they did poorly generating yards on first and second down. The Vikings only passed 36% of the time on first down and 27% on second downs. In this 3-WR set, Stefon Diggs is in the slot and Laqu…
