Leaky walls, loose panels at Vikings' new $1.1B stadium

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 21:29:31 GMT

Leaky walls and loose panels at the Minnesota Vikings' new $1.1 billion stadium pose health and safety concerns, according to a stadium official who says fixing the problems are a priority. Zinc panels covering the entire exterior of the building are being tested by engineers and metallurgists, said Rick Evans, executive director of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. The Star Tribune reported (http://strib.mn/2pIH12e ) that Evans said Friday he doesn't expect MSFA to pay for any repairs at U.S. Bank Stadium, which has been open only nine months.

It’s been a long time since someone other than Adrian Peterson has been the Minnesota Vikings’ marquee running back, but they may have found Peterson’s successor on Friday night – even though there’s risk involved. Minnesota drafted Florida State running back Dalvin Cook with the 41st pick, getting a player who is impressive on the field but comes with numerous question marks off it. Cook, who measures 5-foot-10, 210 pounds, rushed for 4,464 yards and 46 touchdowns, setting Seminoles records in both categories – in just three seasons.

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook entices Vikes to 'take a swing'

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 04:29:02 GMT

After sitting out of the first round, the Minnesota Vikings didn't want to wait any longer. Dalvin Cook was still available, the kind of dynamic running back Minnesota drafted 10 years ago and just recently let go. The Vikings traded up seven spots to the 41st overall pick Friday night and snagged Cook, the Florida State star whose stellar college career came with off-the-field questions.

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 23:53:59 GMT

All Cook did at Florida State was rewrite the program’s record books. It took Dalvin Cook only three years to become Florida State’s all-time leading rusher. Despite one of the most stacked resumes in the 2017 NFL draft, he still fell to the 41st overall pick, likely the result of a combination of off-field troubles, durability questions, and ball-security issues.

In the third round, the Chiefs traded with the Minnesota Vikings to move up to the 86th overall pick and grab prolific Toledo running back Kareem Hunt, giving them a big-play threat to join running backs Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West and C.J. Spiller in their backfield.

The Chiefs had traded their original fourth-round pick Friday to move up in the third round, where they drafted running back Kareem Hunt of Toledo. To get back into the fourth round, the Chiefs traded two of their fifth-round picks to the Minnesota Vikings, Nos. 170 and 180 overall, and used the 139th pick on the 6-foot-3, 203-pound Chesson, who had 35 receptions for 500 yards and two touchdowns last season. “He’s big, he’s fast, he’s tough,” said Pat Sperduto, who scouted Chesson for the Chiefs.
