Jennings then let Patterson know he should prepare for a major role.

"I wanted him to know that, coming in, the expectation of you is no longer 'rookie.' It's, 'You gotta go. We saw what you can do. We're gonna showcase this,'" Jennings told the website. "For me, it was making sure that he understands that he has to be a professional. He has to be a pro's pro when he steps foot in this building, because we're expecting (him) to give us what we've seen you put out there."

Patterson finished his rookie year strong, with three receiving and three rushing touchdowns in his last five games.

Antone Exum
News
The Vikings signed safety Antone Exum, a sixth-round pick out of Virginia Tech, to a four-year contract. Only two Minnesota draft picks remain unsigned.
Matt Asiata
News
The Vikings could draft a running back in the NFL Draft to help take the load off Adrian Peterson, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The report says the team is looking for a replacement for the departed Toby Gerhart and give Peterson a rest from time to time.

"He's getting to the point where you don't have to give him the ball 50 times a game for 16 games," said general manager Rick Spielman. "Adrian's the face of our franchise, but Norv (Turner) has a history of having two backs to keep him fresh, because I think it's very important as you go through the season that they're still strong in Week 16 and they're still strong when you get into the playoffs."

Minnesota doesn't have a surefire No. 2 back on the roster. Matt Asiata filled in for the injured Peterson and Gerhart in two games last December and performed admirably with 166 yards on 44 carries (a 3.8 average). But Asiata, entering his third season, is still raw.

After that, Minnesota has just Joe Banyard and Bradley Randle on the roster. They've mostly been practice squad players.

Mike Remmers
News
The Vikings have made QB Josh Freeman, RB Adrian Peterson, CB Xavier Rhodes, RB Toby Gerhart, T Mike Remmers, WR Rodney Smith and DT Letroy Guion inactive Week 17.

Matt Kalil
News
Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil won't participate in the team's minicamp this week, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Kalil played through a back injury last year and also hurt his shoulder. 

Kalil insinuated he had surgery, saying that he got "cleaned up" and calling it "not a big deal."  

Jerick McKinnon
News
Everyone knows that the Vikings' run game will revolve around Adrian Peterson. But the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes that rookie Jerick McKinnon will compete for playing time in camp this summer, likely as a pass-catching running back. 

McKinnon didn't do a lot of that in college at Georgia Southern but looked great running routes and showing off nice hands during OTAs and minicamp. McKinnon's usage will depend on a number of factors, including how often the team will want to spell Peterson. There's also a chance, per the paper, that McKinnon and Peterson could be on the field at the same time. 

Joe Banyard
News
Vikings fullback Rhett Ellison and running Joe Banyard both made small contributions on offense Week 16 at Cincinnati. Ellison had two catches for 22 yards, and Banyard had one for 11.

Ellison's only other two catches this year came Week 12 against the Packers. Banyard hadn't recorded a catch all season.

Allen Reisner
News
The Vikings announced the signing of tight end Allen Reisner on Tuesday. Reisner spent 2011 and 2012 with Minnesota before signing with the Jaguars last year following his release. 
Rhett Ellison
News
Vikings TE Chase Ford, WR Jarius Wright, WR Jerome Simpson and TE Rhett Ellison were limited Week 17.

Ford led the group, with five receptions for 43 yards. Wright had 31 yards on two catches. Simpson gained 29 yards on three receptions. Ellison had one catch for 13 yards.

Harrison Smith
News
When the Vikings hired Jerry Gray to coach their defensive backs, they added a guy who made a very big imprint on both Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, the Seahawks' dynamic safety duo. Now Gray believes he can do the same thing with Harrison Smith, the Vikings' best safety. 

"We're going to get him more involved," Gray said per ESPN. "He'll be blitzing some. He'll be covering some. He'll be in the middle of the field. The thing that we're trying to do right now is, figure out what he's best at, and then put him in that position. Can he be one of the better safeties in the league, doing what we're teaching him here?" 

Smith missed half of last season with a turf toe injury but still had 58 total tackles and a pair of interceptions. 

Zach Line
News
The Vikings announced Monday they placed fullback Zach Line (undisclosed) on injured reserve. Line started one of three games for Minnesota, totaling one catch for 8 yards.

Christian Ponder
News
Vikings quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Teddy Bridgewater are likely to get the bulk of the snaps moving forward, reports ESPN.com. That means Christian Ponder will get fewer reps.

"You can't work three [quarterbacks] for a long time, so the reps will get divided up differently," Turner said.

Turner added preseason games will factor "heavily" into the team's decision on a starter.
