Sankey (knee) was waived-injured by the Vikings on Saturday... he gone.
On Saturday the Vikings announced that the club has signed free agent RB Bronson Hill, and waived (injured) RB Bishop Sankey.
Hill (5-10, 215) joins the Vikings after finishing the 2016 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and being released on May 1, 2017. The Grand Rapids, Michigan native ran the ball twice for 11 yards in the three games he appeared in for the Jaguars. Prior to his stint in Jacksonville, Hill spent the 2016 training camp with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Is that me you are talking about or someone else in a yearly league. I took Cook at 4.1 in our dynasty start-up.
I doubt it was you, Joe...but honestly I'm in too many leagues to be for certain. I just know I seen him go quickly in more than 1 league. Wish I could remember, but it probably doesn't matter anyway and more than likely was a common yearly league on NFL.com or CBS... something like that.
it did get better tho not a big fan of starting slow hope play a little quicker and sharper
Laquon Treadwell back to practice, learning how to “be a true receiver”
Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell‘s attempt to improve on a disappointing rookie season took a hit in one of the first training camp practices when he injured his hamstring.
Treadwell missed more than two weeks as a result of the injury, but has returned to practice in a limited fashion. That will give him a chance to continue work on sharpening his technique.
On Tuesday, Treadwell said he was always talented enough to win battles with opponents at lower levels, but has learned that he needs to do more to succeed at the highest level.
“I was good enough,” Treadwell said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “It’s just, when it was time to win at certain points in my route, I didn’t have the formula. Watching [Stefon] Diggs and watching [Adam] Thielen, they were very technical. That’s why they were able to beat guys consistently. I didn’t know how to win. That was my biggest thing: I knew I could win. I just didn’t know how. I spent a lot of time learning how to play — be a true receiver, instead of just relying on God-given talent and ability.”
Treadwell isn’t the first player to learn that the things that worked before won’t work in the NFL without refinement and improvement. Some succeed at honing their games while others can’t make the transition happen and it looks like Treadwell’s chances of a better second season will have a lot to do with where he falls on that spectrum.
I think Treadwell, if he makes the transition, can be just what the Vikings need to really open up the passing game. I hope during Friday's Preseason game with Seattle the offense works on the passing attack with Bradford. Their first preseason game didn't allow much time for Bradford to put in work and I think he needs more reps with the receiving core he has.
just getting tiresome this up and down the Vikings have high hope's for Treadwell,I just don't know anymore time to SHOW! what you can do
I say get him the ball and see what he can do. They got to target him more often... that's what these preseason games are all about. Diggs and Thielen are locks and J.Wright along with Michael Floyd are proven also. Treadwell is still the question-mark, but could turn out to be a stud, but i'd like to start seeing some of that now.
I'm mad and confused how does Tricky Ricky keep his job..this my opinion he hasn't done a very good job they keep on being so so not elite why can't they take the step up?
Murray return to practice Sunday along with Laquon Treadwell... Latavius looked good in the Red Zone.
That's sounds real good cause they had major red zone problems last year,the signing of the gophers qb could be a good thing he was ok at times other times he drove you bat sh*t crazy it was like WTF,but he might be an ok back up
