Vikings Release David Parry

on

The Minnesota Vikings released veteran defensive lineman David Parry, according to an official team announcement.

Parry’s release opens up an available roster spot for newly signed veteran defensive tackle Tom Johnson, who was recently released by the Seattle Seahawks.

Parry played in both of the Vikings’ regular season games this season, recording 1 sack along the way. It is likely that Parry will latch on to a team seeking depth along the interior of their defensive line during his stint in free agency.

Vikings Fire OC John DeFilippo

Published

After a dreadful performance during Monday Night’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the Minnesota Vikings have fired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

After handing a massive, historic, three-year contract to quarterback Kirk Cousins during the offseason, and luring DeFilippo from his quarterbacks coaching job with the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles to guide their offense, the results have been underwhelming.

Cousins has not lived up to the hype and, for now, DeFilippo is the fallguy.

Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski will replace DeFilippo as offensive coordinator moving forward, according to The MMQB’s Albert Breer.

Sharrif Floyd Drops Grievance Against Minnesota Vikings

Former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd has officially withdrawn his grievance against the Vikings, according to the Star-Tribune’s Ben Goessling.

While the case is considered to be put to test, Floyd is still pursuing $180 million in a lawsuit against the Andrews Institute, headed by Dr. James Andrews. Notably, 40% of Floyd’s potential grievance amount ($1.9MM) counted against the Vikings’ cap.

Floyd was scheduled to earn $6.757 million, via his fifth year option back in 2017, but the Vikings  placed him on the non-football injury list due to a nerve issue in Floyd’s knee preventing him from playing.

Vikings’ Ameer Abdullah Willing to Do Whatever it Takes

Published

Minnesota Vikings running back Ameer Abdullah was recently signed following his cut from the Detroit Lions, mainly due to his failure to justify the Lions’ draft investment in him and his inability to build off a solid rookie season.

Now in Minnesota, with a fresh start, Abdullah says he is willing to do whatever the team asks of him.

“Life is amazingly unpredictable,” Abdullah said earlier this week, during an appearance on 1500ESPN. “Excited to be here. It’s a great team, great culture, great atmosphere. Ironically in the same division. Everything happens for a reason and I’m really excited to be here in Minnesota.”

Abdullah knows it will be a battle to get carries, with veterans such as Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray in the backfield with him.

“I’m entering a backfield with a lot of talent with Dalvin and Latavius and all of the guys who have been here,” Abdullah said. “Just to come in today and see these guys welcome me the way they have, it does a lot for my confidence, it does a lot for my focus. I’m ready to work. Anything the Vikings ask me to, I’m willing to do.”
