Floyd Ready for Redemption: “It’s About What You Do Next”

The past six months have been a roller coaster ride for new Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd. In December of this past year, the Minnesota native watched as his career with the Arizona Cardinals unraveled in front of his eyes following a well-documented DUI arrest. Without a team for the first time since Arizona selected him with the No. 13 overall pick in 2012, Floyd found himself at a bit of a career crossroad and at the mercy of the NFL waiver wire.

Zenner, Lions Take Aim at Season Sweep of Vikings

Divisional game matchups always seem to have a special feel. The stakes are inherently higher, familiarity with the opposition breeds competitive matchups and bragging rights are always in play regardless of NFL standing.

Vikings Training Camp: ‘Terminator’ Kearse Learning the Ropes

The Minnesota Vikings traded in their bucket hats for shoulder pads on Sunday afternoon, marking the true beginning of what expects to be a highly competitive training camp at Blakeslee Stadium in Mankato, Minn.
