Minnesota Vikings News

Adam Thielen, Sad to see Diggs leave

Thielen was disappointed when he found out the Vikings were trading Stefon Diggs to the Bills, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Thielen said he and Diggs became close friends while playing on the same team for the past five years. On the bright side, Thielen should see plenty of targets in his age-30 season ahead, as the Vikings are left with a weak WR depth chart behind him -- Tajae Sharpe, Bisi Johnson and Chad Beebe (ankle) being the top candidates to earn snaps. The upcoming draft likely will bring some form of competition, but there's no question about Thielen serving as the go-to receiver under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. The veteran wideout rebounded from an injury-plagued 2019 campaign with a solid showing during the playoffs, bringing in 12 of 16 targets for 179 yards in two games.

Kai Forbath, Facing job competition

The Cowboys signed Greg Zuerlein to challenge Forbath for the placekicker job, Patrik Walker of CBS Sports reports.

Analysis: A three-year, $7.5 million contract makes Zuerlein the presumptive favorite, even though Forbath converted each of his 10 field-goal attempts and each of his 10 PATs in three games with the Cowboys late last season. Forbath owns the superior mark for career field-goal percentage (86.8), but Zuerlein has the bigger leg and the bigger contract.

Ameer Abdullah, Back with Minnesota

The Vikings have re-signed Abdullah.

Analysis: The 26-year-old logged 23 carries for 115 yards to go along with 15 catches for 88 yards and a TD in 16 games for the team last season. Now that he's back in the fold, Abdullah will continue to serve as a depth option in Minnesota's backfield and should also reprise his role as the squad's primary kickoff returner in 2020.

Laquon Treadwell, Heading to Atlanta

Treadwell signed a contract with the Falcons on Sunday, Zach Klein of WSB-TV reports.

Analysis: Treadwell hasn't lived up to his draft status as a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2016, but perhaps a change of scenery will help him take flight in Atlanta. Expectations should be tempered, as Treadwell will have a hard time carving out a major role in a deep receiving corps headlined by Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.

MyCole Pruitt, Back with Tennessee

Pruitt agreed to a contract with the Titans on Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Pruitt appeared in 31 games for the Titans over the last two seasons, and he'll rejoin the team after a brief time on the open market. The 27-year-old totaled 15 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns, so he's unclear to become a significant factor in the passing game in 2020.
