    Last week, after the conclusion of the Jacksonville Jaguars' offseason conditioning program, linebacker Telvin Smith called a players-only meeting to remind his teammates not to settle for losing. What is going on here? An 8-24 team the past two seasons. A players-only meeting in late April. No, this is not the sound of panic; it's one of optimism, but also one of demand. No more sitting around and taking the losing. "I think the not wanting to settle for what’s been happening sparked it, and just me being a competitor and wanting to win," Smith told ESPN .

The Vikings declined to pick up the fifth-year option on Patterson's rookie contract, casting his future with the team into doubt. On the same day the Vikings exercised the options for defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd and cornerback Xavier Rhodes - the other two members of the Vikings first-round class in 2013 - the team preferred not to commit to the $7.9 million Patterson would have b…

We're reminded of this now every year around this time when NFL teams must make decisions on the first-round picks they made a mere three years ago. Optimism was high then, even for what looks like a putrid draft now, but in many cases it's back down to earth with news trickling in for which teams are picking up those players' fifth-year options. In short: The 2013 draft was pretty awful. And right now, it's really sinking in as teams are now having to admit to a lot of their…

The 6-foot-4, 229-pound Boehringer put on a head-turning performance in March at Florida Atlantic's pro workout day, running the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds. The Vikings included Boehringer in their 30-prospect pre-draft visit and after grilling him about the nuances of the game were satisfied with his ability to pick up a complex playbook.

Starting with the first pick, the Vikings selected one of the best (if not the best) receivers in the draft in Laquon Treadwell.  Truth be told I wanted them to take Myles Jack because he was the actual best player on most boards regardless of the concerns about his knee.  He is just too dynamic of a player to let go by.  When reviewi…
