As Rick Spielman has done in previous drafts, the Vikings traded with the Seattle Seahwaks to get pick number 32, the final pick of the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. With that pick, they addressed their need at quarterback.
The Minnesota Vikings traded down from 8 to 9 in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, swapping places with the Cleveland Browns. With all but Blake Bortles on the board, many anticipated Minnesota to select a quarterback. Rick Spielman and clan had other plans, looking to boost the defense.
Following the end of his contract with the Minnesota Vikings, defensive end Jared Allen visited with a handful of teams around the league, and was expected to join either the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks. This morning, the former Vikings sack machine officially found a home within the NFC North.
Speculation much of the 2013 NFL season was that it would be Jared Allen's last with the Minnesota Vikings. News broke late last week that the defensive end wouldn't fit in new coach Mike Zimmer's scheme, and now it is confirmed that he will not be returning to Minnesota for the 2014 season.
A source tells KSTP that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel has decided to void his contract for the upcoming NFL season, flexing an option that was written into the deal that he signed when joining the Vikings before the 2013 season.
The plug was pulled on the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome early Saturday morning (January 18, 2014) as crews allowed the roof to deflate in the demolition process that will lead up to a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.

Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Coordinator Mike Zimmer has been the frontrunner among candidates for the vacancy at head coach left when the Minnesota Vikings fired Leslie Frazier at the end of the regular season. Following a second interview yesterday (Tuesday, January 14), a deal appears to be in the works.
