Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Ready for limited OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday that Cook (knee) remains ahead of schedule, noting that the running back likely will get some work in OTAs this week but still figures to have limitations until training camp, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Given that Cook suffered an ACL tear Week 4 last year, there was never much chance he'd be cleared for all activities prior to training camp. He still seems to be on track for the best-case scenario, which involves limited participation throughout OTAs and mandatory minicamp, followed by full clearance for the start of training camp in late July. With any luck, reports in the coming weeks will elaborate on the extent of Cook's involvement during OTAs. Barring any major setbacks, he should be headed for a workload similar to the one he handled last September, when he piled up 61 carries and 10 catches in his three healthy games.

Vikings' David Parry: Reaches deal with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parry (ankle) agreed to a contract with the Vikings on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While with the Saints last season, Parry landed on injured reserve due to an ankle issue after seeing the field for only three plays in 2017 and was then handed a four-game suspension in December. With the suspension having since concluded, Parry can turn his focus to recovering from the ankle injury and aiming to win a reserve spot along the Minnesota defensive line.

Vikings' Jalyn Holmes: Moves to defensive tackle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holmes was moved to defensive tackle from defensive end in Minnesota's most recent rookie mini camp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Holmes played defensive tackle at Ohio State at times during his college career, but he may be a little light at 285 pounds for the role. He could add a pass rush element from the inside of the defensive line if he can stick at the position.

Vikings' Hercules Mata'afa: Moves to linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata'afa, an undrafted free agent from Washington State, has moved to linebacker from defensive tackle in Minnesota's most recent rookie mini camp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

He'll move to strong-side linebacker in an effort to win a roster spot this summer. He led the NCAA in forcing negative plays the past two years, according to head coach Mike Zimmer, so he could find success in Minnesota's defensive scheme.

Vikings' Brett Taylor: Heads to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor signed a contract with Minnesota on Monday as an undrafted free agent.

Taylor participated at the Vikings' rookie minicamp over the weekend and impressed enough to earn a contract. The linebacker out of Western Illinois was a two-time All-American at the FCS level and totaled 162 tackles in 2017.
