Grading the Vikings Signing of Mike Kafka

Is it worth it to actually grade a quarterback who will fight for a roster spot as a 3rd string quarterback? Probably not… But are we going to anyways? Absolutely. The former Northwestern Quarterback raised a few eyebrows at the Veteran Combine (which has proven to be a solid event), and has earned himself a contract with the Minnesota Vikings. Kafka hasn’t thrown a regular season pass since 2011 during his time with Philly. The former 4th round pick has bounced around between 4 teams in his career and is still only 27 years old....

Grading the Vikings Offseason Moves

The Vikings haven’t been overly active this offseason, but have found time to make a few splashy moves including acquiring Mike Wallace and shipping Matt Cassel for draft picks. While they might not be done we take a quick look at some of the top transactions they have made since ending the season and give them a quick and dirty grade. Move: Signed CB Terence Newman Comment: I’m a pretty big fan of this signing, the 37 year old corner will push for playing time against Josh Robinson day 1. Newman will most likely be here for only...

Grading the Vikings Restructuring Chad Greenway

The inevitable has finally happened, longtime Viking linebacker Chad Greenway has finally restructured his contract that will reduce his cap hit from the $7 million to around $3.4 million giving Minnesota some extra wiggle room in the salary cap department. This was really the only option Greenway had if he wanted to stay a Viking, and it is now clear that he does. I’m a huge fan of bringing him back even at a little higher price than I would like. WHile I don’t think he is at a point in his career where he can start and be relied...

Grading the Vikings Signing of Terence Newman

Terence Newman has spent 13 seasons in the NFL, 7 of which were spent with Mike Zimmer. While he is 36 (37 when the season starts) there is no doubt he is past his prime and looked at as a 1 year rental. That said, he has a good chance of pushing for some serious playing time in 2015. He will come in and battle Josh Robinson for playing time to go along with Captain Munnerlyn and Xavier Rhodes. Newman looked to be all but done after his time in Dallas but actually played fairly well during his 3 years in Cincy starting every game he played in...
