The Lions released offensive linemen Alex Bullard and A.J. Dalton, defensive linemen Greg Hickman and Kris Redding, running back Steven Miller and receiver Conner Vernon.
Bobby Vardaro

Josh Thomas
News
The Vikings have signed free agent cornerback Josh Thomas, who spent last season with four different clubs.

He did play significantly for Carolina in 2012 and 2013, racking up 48 tackles during that time.

Anthony Harris
No Updates
Charles Johnson
News
There were the flashes of brilliance in 2014. There is the addition of fellow wideout Mike Wallace to divert attention. There is the rapidly improving ron-field rapport with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

It all adds up to the potential for a breakout year for Vikings wide receiver Charles Johnson. The combination of Johnson and Wallace could be a nightmare for opposing defenses this season.

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who coached Johnson in Cleveland in 2012, has tracked his development. And he likes what he has seen this offseason.

"He's stronger," Turner told the team website. "He was recovering from that knee surgery a year ago, and I don't know that he was ever 100 percent. I think he's 100 percent. He's got a great work ethic ... and he's a big, strong guy. He's a 218-pound receiver that can run. He's got everything you need to be a productive player in this league."

Johnson showed his potential late last year by catching 25 passes for 415 yards in the final seven games.

Shaun Hill
News
The Vikings made the signings of quarterback Shaun Hill and long snapper Cullen Loeffler on Wednesday, per the team's official website.

Hill, 35, played in Minnesota from 2002-05. He will be reunited with offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who he worked with in 2006 with the 49ers. Loeffler's entire 11-year career has been with Minnesota.

Justin Trattou
News
The Vikings announced several roster moves prior to Sunday's game against the Jets. The team placed rookie back Jerick McKinnon on injured reserve and elevated defensive end Justin Trattou from the practice squad. The team also added safety Ahmad Dixon to the practice squad.
Robert Blanton
News
Vikings running back Matt Asiata (foot) and wideout Greg Jennings (hamstring) are active for the game against Chicago after being listed as probable. They're among a slew of probables suiting up for Minnesota.

The list includes safety Robert Blanton (ankle), safety Antone Exum (knee), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee), tight end Chase Ford (foot), offensive tackle Michael Harris (foot), guard Charlie Johnson (ankle) and safety Andrew Sendejo (thumb). Wideout Jarius Wright is active after being questionable with a back injury.

Chad Greenway
News
The future is a great unknown to Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway. He is even unsure if this season will be his last in the NFL.

But the present feels pretty good despite losing games last year to broken ribs and a strained knee ligament, thereby losing his consecutive-game streak that had reached 115.

"Playing with four broken bones ... sort of humbles you a little bit, you realize," Greenway told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I don't care how old you are, that's going to be painful. You have to get over stuff like that and recover. And I came back and did some good things."

Good things like 93 tackles in 12 games. That did end a four-year run of 100-plus tackles, but the 32-year-old Greenway isn't concerned with such numbers now.

"I feel great," he said.

Eric Kendricks
No Updates
Audie Cole
News
Gerald Hodges will start at middle linebacker for the Vikings during Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys and if all goes well, he could keep the job to start the regular season, according to ESPN.com.

Audie Cole started the first two preseason games at middle linebacker, but coach Mike Zimmer opted for the change after watching film of all the linebacker candidates.

"He's looked good," Zimmer said of Hodges. "The first week, it was more learning, because it's different alignments (than playing outside linebacker). He wasn't perfect with all that stuff. But when he's played, he's done good."

Kyle Rudolph
News
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said tight end Kyle Rudolph "feels great," according to ESPN.

Zimmer saw his tight end last week, and was encouraged by Rudolph's progress. Rudolph was limited at the beginning of the year after hernia surgery, and then missed time late in the season due to ankle and knee issues. Rudolph has already stated that his goal for 2015 is to put his injuries behind him.

Rudolph hauled in 24 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns last year. 

Carter Bykowski
News
The Vikings announced Monday they waived tackle Carter Bykowski. They also placed cornerback Josh Robinson (pectoral) on the PUP list, which means he will miss the first six weeks of the season.
Injury
Marcus Sherels
News
Vikings punt returner Marcus Sherels was shaken up on a punt after taking a shot from a Rams player Sunday.

The trainers looked at Sherels' side, but the team soon announced that he would return to action. The returner has yet to receive an opportunity to bring one back in the first half.

Michael Mauti
News
The Vikings listed cornerback Shaun Prater, running back Jerick McKinnon, fullback Zach Line, linebacker Michael Mauti, linebacker Brandon Watts, guard David Yankey and tackle J’Marcus Webb as inactive for Week 13 against the Panthers.
Everson Griffen
News
Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson got the green light Week 15 against the Lions.

Patterson entered the contest listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury. He was not listed on the injury report on Wednesday or Thursday, but was limited in practice on Friday due to the issue. He'll attempt to play through it against Detroit.

The team will also have Jerome Felton, Everson Griffen, Jabari Price and Harrison Smith. All four players were listed as probable heading into the game. 

Xavier Rhodes
News
When the Vikings selected Trae Waynes in the first round of the draft on Thursday, it was the second time in three years they've used a first-round pick on a corner.

The Vikings selected Xavier Rhodes in 2013, and it's only natural to consider pairing the two DBs. 

"To get two young corners like that and you watch Chicago take the receiver from West Virginia, knowing the receivers that we face in Green Bay and knowing the receivers we face in Detroit," GM Rick Spielman said, per Vikings.com. "To have to young corners that I know this staff has done a tremendous job of helping our young guys. To get another young player on that side of the ball, especially a player at a position that is in Coach Zimmer’s wheelhouse. We are going to have to play some good defense and we were able to really improve last year, and I think adding a player like a Trae Waynes will definitely upgrade our defense."

That doesn't mean Waynes is guaranteed a starting spot. " I know we signed Terence Newman, and we have Captain Munnerlyn. We have Josh Robinson," Spielman said. "We have a lot of depth at corner right now. Corners take some time to develop, he is not going to be pushed into starting right away, that will be determined as we go through this offseason program, as we go through training camp, how quickly he comes along, but we also have the luxury with the depth that we have at the cornerback position and if he is ready, the coaches will determine when he is ready."

Coach Mike Zimmer was more aggressive. "I anticipate everybody to compete for a starting job," he said. 

Chigbo Anunoby
News
The Titans dumped 20 players Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Tennessee cut the following players: T Jeff Adams, CB Ri'Shard Anderson, RB Antonio Andrews, DL Chigbo Anunoby, K Maikon Bonani, CB Tommie Campbell, TE Chase Coffman, LB Brandon Copeland, QB Dominique Davis, DE Marcus Dixon, LB Moise Fokou, WR Marc Mariani, G Justin McCray, FB Collin Mooney, OL Eric Olsen, T William Poehls, WR Rico Richardson, WR Brian Robiskie, TE Jason Schepler and CB Winston Wright.
Donte Foster
News
The Vikings announced they added quarterback Chandler Harnish, receiver Donte Foster and safety Pierre Warren to the practice squad. Quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson was released from the squad.
Mike Wallace
News
Vikings burner Mike Wallace has been in search of an offense that best fits his skill set since leaving Pittsburgh. He believes he has found one.

Wallace was stuck in a West Coast system in Miami, which resulted in two seasons with weaker numbers than he produced in his heyday with the Steelers. His 12.8 yards-per-catch average with the Dolphins was a far cry from the 17.2 he achieved previously. He caught 12 passes of 20-plus yards in Miami after snagging 44 in four years with Pittsburgh.

For a receiver that was clocked at 4.33 in the 40 in 2009, those statistics in Miami are unworthy of his speed. He is seeking a quarterback that can fire the ball downfield and will be given the freedom to do so. He is hoping it's Teddy Bridgewater. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner is vowing to cut the offense loose, which pleases Wallace.

"I think it's more so [like] my first four years, he told ESPN. "It's a vertical offense, [rather] than a short, West Coast offense. You go down the field a lot more here, more what I'm accustomed to."

Shamar Stephen
News
The Vikings announced a variety of roster moves before Sunday's first practice of training camp.

The team placed linebacker Casey Matthews on the Reserve/Injured list with cornerback Josh Robinson being placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Moreover, defensive tackle Shamar Stephen and wide receiver DaVaris Daniels were placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list.

Captain Munnerlyn
News
Vikings cornerback Captain Munnerlyn was a no-go during organized team activities on Thursday, per 1500espn.com.

Munnerlyn was seen with a walking boot at the team facility. He apparently injured his foot last week during OTA's and tried practicing through the pain but ultimately needed a MRI.

"Come Monday, I couldn't run," Munnerlyn said. "I was like 'Oh, man, what's going on.'"

Munnerlyn is aiming to be back by the start of mandatory minicamp in a few weeks, but that he at least expects to be healthy by training camp. 

"Hope so," Munnerlyn said. "So I can get out of here in the summer. If not, stay here, rehab and be ready to roll for training camp."

Brian Peters
No Updates
Antone Exum
News
The Vikings did not select a safety during last week's NFL Draft, which opens the door for second-year man Antone Exum to step in and produce, per the Pioneer Press

Exum, who was taken in the sixth round last year and only participated in 16 plays from scrimmage, could battle safety Robert Blanton for the position, but is willing to be either a strong or free safety. 

"So whatever I'm asked to play, I will be ready," Exum said. "I take pride in work ethic and not being outworked, and this offseason I've been attacking."

Matt Asiata
News
Restricted free agent running back Matt Asiata will sign a one-year contract to remain with the Vikings, according to a report by Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The deal is believed to be incentive-laden with a salary below $1 million. 
Tom Johnson
News
Vikings defensive tackle Tom Johnson was acquitted of all counts stemming from an October arrest at a restaurant, 1500ESPN.com reports.

Johnson, who was charged with three misdemeanor counts, re-signed with the Vikings as a free agent in March to a three-year, $7 million deal.

Edmond Robinson

Josh Robinson
News
The Vikings secondary took a hit last month when cornerback Josh Robinson sustained a partially torn pectoral muscle, a league source has told ESPN.

The nickel back played in 690 snaps last season and was expected to battle several others for playing time. The injury could sideline him from training camp and land him on the PUP list.

Injury
Pectoral - PUP. Out until at least late October
Stefon Diggs

Adam Thielen
News
With the release of veteran Greg Jennings, the Vikings are moving forward with Jarius Wright as their slot receiver. "We're in good shape with Jarius Wright, and Adam [Thielen] has gotten some snaps there as well," offensive coordinator Norv Turner told KFAN 1003.

Wright, 25, caught a career-high 42 passes for 588 yards last season, with two touchdowns. He also rushed five times for 71 yards.

Thielen, 24, had eight catches for 137 yards and a touchdown.

Danielle Hunter
News
Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told reporters that Danielle Hunter is an Anthony Barr-type athlete and indicated that he could line up as a defensive end when on the field his rookie season.

"We looked at him as a defensive end and then when you watch his work out at the combine and you watch his work out at the pro day, he's an incredible athlete when we put him through drops and coverage," Spielman said, per the team's official website. "He is an Anthony Barr-type athlete, maybe not as fluid, but has the ability to do a lot of different things depending on how he develops and where our coaches see him."

The Vikings took Hunter in the third round with the 88th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Isaac Fruechte

Adrian Peterson
News
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson limped off the practice field on Tuesday, but the injury wasn't believed to be serious. 

"He got tangled up," teammate Jerick McKinnon said, per ESPN. "A defender fell on him, but he said he was alright. Everybody knows Adrian's got a cape on. He'll be back out here tomorrow. I don't think anybody's worried about him."

Injury
Thigh - Probable for start of season
Joe Berger
News
The Vikings have re-signed offensive lineman Joe Berger to a two-year deal, ESPN.com reports.

"He's excited to be able to play in the new stadium (the Vikings will open in 2016)," his agent, Tom Tafelski, said. "It's a great organization, a great sports city, a great quality of life. We're excited we got it done."

Berger started nine games at right guard last season. He could compete for a starting role next season depending on what else the team accomplishes in free agency and the draft.

MyCole Pruitt
News
Vikings undrafted rookie tight end MyCole Pruitt proved to be the star of the game in the first game of the NFL season Sunday.

Pruitt caught four passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in a defeat of Pittsburgh in the Hall of Fame Game. He snagged a 34-yard pass from Mike Kafka in the second quarter for the score.

Blair Walsh
News

Anthony Barr
News
Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr has returned to action after missing all of OTAs while rehabbing from a knee issue. That injury was not the same as the one that resulted in season-ending knee surgery in 2014.

Barr went through individual drills on Tuesday.

"He's got to get bafck to playing," Mike Zimmer told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "He hasn't really done football in a long time. So it's good for him to back out here and start moving around and getting with the calls."

Fusco plans to be ready for OTAs, while Loadholt vowed to be ready no later than training camp.

“I can use him as a gauge,” Loadholt said of his teammate. “He’s through everything I’m going through right now, so I’m just trying to stay on pace and get ready for the year.”

Jarius Wright
News
With the release of veteran Greg Jennings, the Vikings are moving forward with Jarius Wright as their slot receiver. "We're in good shape with Jarius Wright, and Adam [Thielen] has gotten some snaps there as well," offensive coordinator Norv Turner told KFAN 1003.

Wright, 25, caught a career-high 42 passes for 588 yards last season, with two touchdowns. He also rushed five times for 71 yards.

Thielen, 24, had eight catches for 137 yards and a touchdown.

John Sullivan
News
The status of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is up in the air, and while the veteran may not have interest in returning to Minnesota, center John Sullivan made it clear Thursday's night in an interview on Sirius XM NFL Radio Thursday night that the Minnesota players want Peterson back, Pro Football Talk reports.

"We want him back. There is no doubt the players want him back," Sullivan said. "He missed an entire season. He more than paid his dues with this whole thing. I respect him as a man. I don’t want to talk too much about it just because I don’t want to put too much conjecture out there but I just hope it works itself out and he comes back and joins us. We have open arms here waiting for him. We want to rush for the 2,500 yards that he talked about a couple of years ago."

The league reportedly filed an appeal in the Peterson case Wednesday to preserve the disciplinary powers of commissioner Roger Goodell. Peterson met with Goodell Tuesday, but an official decision on his reinstatement has yet to be announced.

Matt Kalil
News
Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil underwent arthroscopic surgical procedures to both of his knees so far this offseason, according to a report from USA Today

Kalil also had injections to help manage joint pain. Both knees were scoped in January before having a Regenexx procedure performed on them in March. Kalil also had platelet-rich plasma therapy performed, too. 

Throughout the procedures, Kalil has been working out and rehabbing at the Vikings' team facility. 

Jerick McKinnon
News
Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon doesn't have a Fantasy football team, but if he did...

"If ... I could take myself, I would," he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Never mind that Adrian Peterson has returned to the backfield. Never mind that Peterson has traditionally not yielded many carries to teammates. In 2012, for instance, he totaled 348 of his team's 401 rushing attempts.

The Vikings, however, are expected to use a more balanced approach in 2015. And McKinnon, who flashed as a starter with Peterson sidelined last season, is feeling dandy after undergoing lower back surgery in December.

"Two hundred percent," he declared in regard to his health. "If there is a 300, I feel 300. It's all good."

McKinnon averaged 4.8 yards per carry a year ago, which buoyed his confidence.

Ryan Whalen
News
The Vikings announced the signing of wide receiver Ryan Whalen on Sunday. Whalen has caught 11 passes for 80 yards in his three-year career.
Terence Newman
News
When the Vikings selected Trae Waynes in the first round of the draft on Thursday, it was the second time in three years they've used a first-round pick on a corner.

The Vikings selected Xavier Rhodes in 2013, and it's only natural to consider pairing the two DBs. 

"To get two young corners like that and you watch Chicago take the receiver from West Virginia, knowing the receivers that we face in Green Bay and knowing the receivers we face in Detroit," GM Rick Spielman said, per Vikings.com. "To have to young corners that I know this staff has done a tremendous job of helping our young guys. To get another young player on that side of the ball, especially a player at a position that is in Coach Zimmer’s wheelhouse. We are going to have to play some good defense and we were able to really improve last year, and I think adding a player like a Trae Waynes will definitely upgrade our defense."

That doesn't mean Waynes is guaranteed a starting spot. " I know we signed Terence Newman, and we have Captain Munnerlyn. We have Josh Robinson," Spielman said. "We have a lot of depth at corner right now. Corners take some time to develop, he is not going to be pushed into starting right away, that will be determined as we go through this offseason program, as we go through training camp, how quickly he comes along, but we also have the luxury with the depth that we have at the cornerback position and if he is ready, the coaches will determine when he is ready."

Coach Mike Zimmer was more aggressive. "I anticipate everybody to compete for a starting job," he said.

Cordarrelle Patterson
News
Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to return kicks this season.

Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said, "In my mind, Cordarrelle Patterson's the best kick returner in the league, so it would be crazy for me to put someone else in that spot," per NFL.com.

Patterson averaged 25.6 yards on returns last year, sixth in the league. He still has room for improvement, Priefer said. 

"There's still things that he can't do this year he did last year, like put the ball on the ground," he said.
