Vikings move ahead with whole new line,After surprising cut

Vikings move ahead with whole new line,After surprising cut
vikings-move-ahead-with-whole-new-lineafter-surprising-cut
The Minnesota Vikings signed Alex Boone to a four-year deal potentially worth as much as $27 million just last summer to give them the kind of nasty edge they needed on the offensive line.

One year later, that may not be a bad thing., Boone is gone and the Vikings are entering the regular season with an almost entire new unit up front. After last season's struggles

 and he has moved from center to right guard.,The decision to cut Boone last weekend ensured that the Vikings go into the Week 1 opener against New Orleans with five different players in the five starting positions. Joe Berger is the only holdover from a year ago

" coach Mike Zimmer said on Tuesday. "I've sat in that room a lot and these guys have good conversation. They work good together and we've been mixing around the rotations quite a bit.","I feel good

 sustain drives and avoid penalties contributed to a dominant defense getting worn out as the season wore on and Minnesota missed the playoffs after starting the season 5-0.,Injuries and ineffectiveness on the offensive line were the two biggest problems for the Vikings offense last season. Their inability to score in the red zone

Upgrading up front was the team's biggest priority in the offseason. General manager Rick Spielman signed left tackle Riley Reiff and right tackle Mike Remmers in free agency and drafted Pat Elflein out of Ohio State in the third round.

And rather than try to hold on to Boone, who declined to take a pay cut, Spielman swallowed hard, decided to eat $3.4 million in guaranteed money and said goodbye to him,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/stefon-diggs-jersey-cheap]Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey[/url], 2015 fourth-round draft choice T.J. Clemmings and 2016 fourth-round pick Willie Beavers in a dramatic overhaul.

And the starting five that will take the field on Monday night — Reiff at left tackle, left guard Nick Easton,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/laquon-treadwell-jersey-cheap]Womens Laquon Treadwell Jersey[/url], Elflein at center,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/mackensie-alexander-jersey-cheap]Womens Mackensie Alexander Jersey[/url], Berger and Remmers at right tackle — saw no action together in the preseason while Reiff recovered from a back injury and Boone started at left guard.

So the challenge will be to build a chemistry and continuity quickly in hopes of keeping quarterback Sam Bradford upright and get the Vikings offense rolling.

" Remmers said. "We're going to go out there and we're going to fight. It's going to be a fun one.","I'm more than confident in all of the guys out there

Of all the position groups,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/eric-kendricks-jersey-cheap]Authentic Eric Kendricks Jersey[/url], but also have to know where their teammates are going to be to make things work., chemistry is most important to the offensive line. All five players have to not only understand their own assignments

Now they plunge into a highly anticipated opener featuring the return of former star Adrian Peterson and the induction of Randy Moss into the team's ring of honor with a rookie at center and only practice repetitions to prepare them for the game.

"Even just going against our defense every day in practice," Elflein said. "I feel like all of that has gotten me ready to play.", it's the best look you can get

 making communication an even bigger key for the offense. Remmers said the group is making preparations to account for the noise and Zimmer said he is watching them closely in team meetings to see how everything is coming together.,The environment will be loud

"I don't think the calls will be anything different," Zimmer said. "No different than any other position really.", but it's just making sure everybody is on the same page

Remmers downplayed the newness surrounding him. He is entering his fifth season, so all of that experience will be relied heavily upon early in the season while the group finds its way., Reiff his sixth and Berger is a 13-year pro. Easton played in 11 games last year for the Vikings and had five starts

" Remmers said. "We've been preparing for this moment for a while so we're all looking forward to it.","You've got to be ready for everything

Vikings offer big money to add QB to practice squad

 the Minnesota Vikings have decided on their practice squad quarterback.,After sending third-string quarterback Taylor Heinicke to injured reserve and waiving preseason signee Mitch Leidner

The Vikings signed rookie Kyle Sloter (Northern Colorado) to their practice squad on Sunday, the quarterback confirmed on Twitter. Sloter will reportedly get $20,000 per week he is on the practice squad,000 more per week than the minimum for practice squad players.,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/stefon-diggs-jersey-cheap]Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey[/url],000 less than the rookie minimum for players on the 53-man roster and almost $13,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/laquon-treadwell-jersey-cheap]Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey[/url], which ends up being about $120

In his post on Twitter,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/trae-waynes-jersey-cheap]Authentic Trae Waynes Jersey[/url], Sloter said "The opportunity, coupled with the best decision for me and my family financially,[url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/trae-waynes-jersey-cheap]Womens Trae Waynes Jersey[/url],was too much to pass up. Thank you again to Bronco Country! Looking forward to being a part of a great organization. #GoVikings"

The Vikings were also more financially aggressive than usual when signing undrafted rookies in May, meaning he can’t practice until at least Week 7)., [url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/eric-kendricks-jersey-cheap]Womens Eric Kendricks Jersey[/url], and now they were looking for a third quarterback to develop behind starter Sam Bradford and backup Case Keenum (Teddy Bridgewater is officially starting the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list

Sloter, 6-foot-4 and 218 pounds, played in all four preseason games for the Denver Broncos this year, completing 31 of 43 attempts for 413 yards, [url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/mackensie-alexander-jersey-cheap]Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey[/url],three touchdowns and no interceptions. He finished the preseason with an impressive 125.4 passer rating.
