Rudolph is participating in in this week's OTAs and says he's fully healthy after missing seven games last season due to hernia surgery, ankle and knee injuries, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "I'll tell you, what’s even a better addition is have Kyle Rudolph back healthy,” quaterback Teddy Bridgewater said. “He’s like a whole new player on the team.”
Wallace says Minnesota's offense is a better fit for him than Miami and he's been spending extra time working with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in OTAs, ESPN reports. "I think it's more so [like] my first four years," Wallace said. "It's a vertical offense, [rather] than a short, West Coast offense. You go down the field a lot more here, more what I'm accustomed to."
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer re-affirmed that Minnesota will not trade Peterson despite his absence from this week's OTAs. "He's really got two choices. He can either play for us or he can not play. He's not going to play for anybody else, and that's just the way it's going to be," Zimmer told Fox Sports North.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn't expect Peterson to be disgruntled or disruptive when he reports to workouts based on recent conversations he's had with him, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "There's a lot of ifs and nuts and candies and buts there," Zimmer said. "I don't think there will be any issues, no."
