On March 13th, the Minnesota Vikings sent a fifth round draft selection to Miami in exchange for deep threat Mike Wallace and a seventh round draft selection. Not long after, they parted ways with veteran receiver Greg Jennings.

On Wednesday, the ramifications of this move came full circle and Jennings reportedly signed with Miami. According to those reports, his deal is for two years and worth up to $8 million, which is a far cry from what he was scheduled to make in Minnesota.

It is also considerably less than the salaries the Vikings are scheduled to pay Wallace over the next three years. According to Over The Cap, Wallace is scheduled to carry cap hit of $9.5 million this season and $11.5 million during his final two years.

"With those skinny knees, Teddy's probably susceptible to bilateral weakness too."

Your bracket is toast, time to get back to Vikings football! Tom Schreier (@tschreier3) of Cold Omaha and 105 The Ticket joins the show to talk about the latest Minnesota Vikings news, what big things are going down at the Twin Cities newest sports radio station on the rise, as well as Tom’s path in the world of sports journalism at the co-founding of CO.

The Vikings continue to show that they’re truly a year round spectacle as there’s always news/drama brewing as we saw last week with Mike Wallace & the Pounceys, the latest stare-down between Spielman and Adrian’s camp, as well as Adrian birthday camel. Because why not. If AP doesn’t want to be a Viking, at least he can be Aladdin.

The Minnesota Vikings came out of the initial free agency waive with backup quarterback Shaun Hill as their only unrestricted free agent signing. The team allowed four of their own unrestricted free agents to sign elsewhere, which means they are currently “plus three” for possible 2016 compensatory picks, for those keeping track at home.

A trade for wide out Mike Wallace meant Greg Jennings was sent packing and a recent signing of DuJuan Harris provides a little depth at running back. That signing will have zero impact on the outcome of the ongoing Adrian Peterson saga, but there is no doubt that the future of #28 is currently the hottest topic out there, and probably will be until it is resolved.

There has been a lot of talk around receivers for the Vikings, especially since the release of Greg Jennings and signing of Mike Wallace. It seems appropriate, then, for Round 3 of Question of the Week:

Who Will Lead the Vikings in Receiving (Catches, Yards & TDs) this Year?

Brent:  Catches: Charles Johnson | Yards: Mike Wallace | TDs: Kyle Rudolph
I think Johnson will continue to be Teddy’s favorite target, mainly because he’ll thrive in the mid-range routes—where Teddy is awesome. Wallace will rack up a lot of yards via deep passes, but he won’t prove to be a significant red zone target. Rudolph’s size and consistent hands will make him a favorite for touchdowns within striking distance. The TE will be used more heavily than last year—as it has in years past in Norv’s offense.


Carl: 
Catches: Charles Johnson | Yards: Mike Wallace | TDs: Mike Wallace
Johnson’s 15.3 yards per catch on 31 receptions in 2014 was impressive to say the least, but Wallace shouldn’t have any problem racking up yards in Turner’s vertical offense. My guess is the targets will be balanced between multiple players, but yardage will be owned by Wallace especially if Adrian comes with a chip on his shoulder.

Although the Minnesota Vikings have been relatively quiet in free agency, they’ve made a few moves that could have lasting impacts heading into the 2015 season.

Splashy trades, surprising releases, and expensive free agent signings usually dominate headlines, but sometimes, the smaller, less-publicized transactions make or break a team’s season.
