    Falcons sign running back Jhurell Pressley, agree to injury settlement with B.J. Daniels

Pressley’s signing comes after running back Devonta Freeman was placed in concussion protocol on Monday and the waiving of running back B.J.

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has returned to practice following a two-week absence caused by a hamstring injury. Treadwell said he hopes to be able to play with the Vikings in their exhibition game at Seattle on Friday, but precaution could top eagerness in this case. Coming off a rough rookie season in which he only had one catch for 15 yards and was slowed by multiple injuries, Treadwell has been on a clear track for second-year improvement and started training camp strong until his latest setback.

    Minnesota Vikings preseason has meaning

    Preseason football has no bearing on the regular season, but it does have meaning for many players and fans. Does preseason football mean anything? I have been hearing since last Thursday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, that preseason games don’t mean anything. We all have heard and some have even said, “it’s only the first preseason game, it doesn’t mean anything.” In some respects that is true, for example, it doesn’t really matter what the final score is. Whoever wins or loses, it does not have bearing on their season and if they make the playoffs or not. Remember the…

    One player stands out above the rest for this one For the Minnesota Vikings, the number 24 is another number that has been worn by a lot of players over the years, but very few that made a real impact. However, one player worked his way up from undrafted free agency to Pro Bowl status while wearing the number, and is really the best player to wear it for the purple by a significant margin.Robert Griffith went undrafted out of San Diego State in 1993, and spent a year playing in the Canadian Football League before getting a chance to sign with the Vikings. Griffith was mainly a backup an…

Fans of the Minnesota Vikings knew. . .or at least hoped. . .that at some point during Training Camp, the team would work out a long-term contract extension with cornerback Xavier Rhodes. After all, he was going into the final year of his rookie contract and had ascended to a level far above what he was being paid at.The team did work out an extension with Rhodes, but that extension was sandwiched between two new deals that very few people saw coming.

In the history of the Minnesota Vikings, a lot of players have worn the number 25. . .20, to be precise (if you count new Vikings running back Latavius Murray, who will wear it this season). But there hasn’t been a whole lot of impact from those players, and certainly not any recently.Going back through history, the first prominent #25 for the purple was defensive back Nate Allen.
