  • Vikings' Ameer Abdullah: Re-signs with Vikings
    By RotoWire Staff

    Abdullah is re-signing with Minnesota, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports. Cut by Detroit midway through the 2018 season, Abdullah quickly resurfaced in Minnesota, where he played six snaps on offense and 86 on special teams in seven games. He's never lived up to his second-round draft status, but the ability to return and cover kicks would make him a sensible choice for the No. 3 running back spot. The Vikings recently lost Latavius Murray to the Saints, leaving them with Abdullah, Mike Boone and Roc Thomas as depth options behind Dalvin Cook. With additional competition sure to come later this offseason, Abdullah will need to reprove his value on special teams.

  • Abdullah played 16 special teams snaps during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Bears. For the second straight game, Abdullah did not play an offensive snap. He finishes up the season with one reception for 10 yards on two targets. The former 2015 second-round pick was mostly utilized as a kick returner during the 2018 regular season and didn't log a single carry despite top running back Dalvin Cook missing multiple games due to injury. Set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, Abdullah will look for a depth role elsewhere in the league if Minnesota doesn't re-sign him.

  • Vikings' Ameer Abdullah: Targeted once in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Abdullah was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Packers. Abdullah has just one touch in two games in Minnesota and, after two kick returns in Week 11, did not bring the ball out on Sunday. The top of the Vikings' stable is pretty set with Latavius Murray and Dalvin Cook. Though Abdullah's speed could conceivably add another dimension to the attack, you should see it before you believe it. The Patriots' bottom-10 total defense looms Sunday, but Abdullah won't get many offensive chances to test it.

  • Vikings' Ameer Abdullah: Gets work as kick returner
    By RotoWire Staff

    Abdullah had one reception for ten yards on his only target in Sunday's loss at Chicago. He also returned two kickoffs for an average of 28.5 yards. He played just one snap on offense, and he'll be mostly limited to special teams as long as Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray are healthy. Still, it's notable that he got time on offense while No. 4 RB Mike Boone was inactive.

  • Ameer Abdullah: Cut loose by Detroit
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Lions are expected to waive Abdullah on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Detroit will bid adieu to its 2015 second-round pick as it makes room on the 53-man roster for receiver Bruce Ellington. Abdullah made 22 starts during his three-plus-year run in Detroit, but the 25-year-old averaged just 3.8 yards per carry while also dealing with some ball-security issues. The offseason additions of Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount had pushed Abdullah down to fourth on the depth chart at running back in 2018, with Abdullah suiting up in just three of the Lions' eight games. Abdullah's pedigree and ability to contribute in the return game should be enough to earn him a look elsewhere around the league as a depth back.
