Word at the combine is the Vikings would like to retain free agent Tom Johnson, last year's starting defensive tackle, but in a reduced role. He was putting up some big time numbers throughout the season, and that drive at the end of the game against the Saints was incredible.

Bradford, given the long-term uncertainty about the stability of his knee, is likely the team's least-desirable option.
It was a good season for the Vikings.
Tomasson talked about the blurry line for the Vikings between saving money and going with Keenum, or simply spending more and going after Kirk Cousins, particularly if a team in free agency throws out a contract worth more than $20 million per year for Keenum.

Sadio Mane has said he believes Liverpool are more than good enough to secure a second-placed finish in the Premier League . As you can see in the list below, great efforts by Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer as well.
On Monday, NFL Network reported the Vikings would not negotiate a contract extension for Keenum or place the franchise tag on him, which would have allowed the team to sign him for one season at about $23 million.
Spielman said he will sit down with the agents and representatives of the three current Vikings quarterbacks soon to get a better feel for how the franchise will decide to move forward as free agency approaches. But I understand decisions were made to give this team the best chance to win.
Zimmer even called Bradford's knee "degenerative" while wondering if he could even make it through a full season healthy. "He is a competitor; he's got the heart of a Lion", Zimmer said Thursday. "That's the monkey wrench in the whole thing". In the years since DeFilippo spent two years at San Jose State as an offensive coordinator before cutting his teeth as an National Football League play-caller with the Cleveland Browns in 2015. Bridgewater's knee injury knocked him out for the 2016 campaign before he appeared in one game in 2017, throwing two passes. We've won with Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater carries the same health risk, having not started a meaningful game since the wild card round in the playoffs on January 10, 2016, because of the knee injury that kept him off the field until a brief appearance late last season. Whether he can return to his 2014-15 form remains in question. "I always looked up to Teddy and wanted to be like Teddy". "In practice, he did some really good things". "That's got to affect the way you evaluate how much you want to pay for your next quarterback". First downs and touchdowns were gained more easily in short-yardage spots, Spielman said, in part because of the 6-foot-3-inch running back.
"That's the million-dollar question: Is he going to be able to maintain for 15 weeks, 16 weeks, or is he going to get, really, nearly a non-contact injury and be out for the year". "This kid is a great competitor".
