The Minnesota Vikings have yet to strike a deal, at least a public deal, with a new player from outside the organization. However, they are still in the process of getting some of their own free agents back into the fold.

The latest to re-sign with the Vikings is running back Matt Asiata, according to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press.  Specific terms of the deal are not yet known, but it is expected to be of the one-year variety and heavy on the incentives.

Today marks the opening of the three-day opening for “legal” tampering. Deals are starting to be made at a consistent pace and Vikings action is sure to be picking up soon.

Over the last couple of months we here at VT have put together some previews of each position that includes current roster situations, players potentially departing from the team this offseason, and look at who might be on the market to bring aboard and help get this team into the playoffs.

 “The first sentence I wrote on him in the free agency preview is that “he is better than Everson Griffen”. I sincerely think that.”

Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) joins me again on the podcast to talk Vikings Free Agency and what the cap rich – and potentially more cap rich if they move Adrian – Purple People Eaters will do once the FA flood gates open on March 10th.

We run through the Top-10 list of potential free agents Arif listed on his count down over at Vikings Journal, hit on some big name pipe dream FA names to keep the rubes happy, and also break down what it’s like to be in the crosshairs of #KeyboardWarriorNation after his latest Adrian article.

We also speculate what the Cassel trade means for the backup QB position, what Spielman could potentially alchemy that 5th round pick into, and how the “Bro-Hug” meeting between Rick, Zimmer, & Adrian will affect the 30-year old running back’s future with the team.

Earlier today, embattled Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson met with head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman at his home in Houston, Texas. Shortly after the meeting concluded, Adrian Peterson released this statement, per ESPN’s Josina Anderson:

“I appreciate Rick [Spielman] and Coach [Mike] Zimmer coming down to see me today. We had a great dialogue and they were able to understand where I was coming from and concerns my family and I still have. We respect each other and hopefully the situation can pan out so that everyone involved is content.”

The NFL is a business, plain and simple. Every Sunday from early September to February, fans have the opportunity to watch their favorite players and teams compete on football’s grandest stage. But the machinations that take place behind closed doors, in executive offices, and away from the cameras are the engines that drive the ever-popular $6-billion machine.

Loyalty has become an abstract concept in the age of $100 million quarterbacks — are players loyal to their franchises or committed to the prospects of a new contract? It’s difficult to blame players for following the money; on one hand, this is their livelihood, an increasingly-lucrative opportunity that injuries can snatch away in the blink of an eye. On the other, fans expect their favorite players, their superstars, to be “lifers” and stick with a team for the duration of their careers.
