Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Likely won't have fifth-year option exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings aren't expected to exercise Bridgewater's fifth-year option before the May 2 deadline, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

With Bridgewater still working his way back from a torn ACL and dislocated left knee that sidelined him for all of 2016, the Vikings aren't willing to guarantee his $11 million-plus deal for 2018. The former first-round pick remains without a timetable to return to full activities. Meanwhile, Sam Bradford is set to enter training camp as the team's starting QB, with Case Keenum on hand to serve as his top backup.

Vikings' Stefon Diggs: Aiming for healthy season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diggs is taking steps in the offseason to assure he does not miss time during the upcoming season, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Diggs dealt with a flurry of injuries last season including issues in his hips, knees, and groin. The No. 1 wideout noted these injuries were his own fault and is now dedicated to making sure his 2017 campaign is completely injury-free. Should he remain healthy, Diggs could be in for impressive fantasy numbers as he and Sam Bradford head into their second season together.

Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Making progress but lacks timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridgewater (knee) is making progress in the first week of offseason workouts but is still without a timetable, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

It's good news for the 24-year-old, who is making his way back from a gruesome left knee injury suffered on Aug. 30. General manager Rick Spielman said Bridgewater's recovery has been "incredible", but it appears as if the former first-round pick is still a ways away from taking the field in any sort of capacity. Look for more updates to come throughout the offseason as Sam Bradford prepares for his second season as the Vikings' starting quarterback.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Aiming for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (ankle) doesn't have a timetable for a return, but the running back is aiming for participation at the start of training camp, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Within a week of signing with the Vikings in March, Murray had bone spurs removed from his right ankle. At the moment, he's a far cry from taking part in on-field drills, as he was seen on a stationary bike on the sideline during Tuesday's offseason session, according to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Brought in to fill the shoes of the departed Adrian Peterson (knee), Murray is fair as both a runner and pass-catcher, boasting 2,278 rushing yards and 91 receptions (on 119 targets) during the first three seasons of his career with the Raiders. Fortunately for Murray, he'll only have to fend off Jerick McKinnon in Minnesota, once he achieves full health.

Vikings' Mackensie Alexander: Undergoes groin surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander underwent groin surgery during the offseason to repair an injury suffered in 2016, Andrew Krammer of The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Alexander saw just 68 snaps in 2016 after being selected in the second round of last year's draft. He wound up on injured reserve due to his groin injury, though the injury wasn't disclosed until recently. He wasn't at all limited during the first few days of the Vikings offseason program and is expected to compete for the nickel corner position in 2017.
