Sun, 27 Jan 2013 18:09:11 -0800

Minnesota Vikings C John Sullivan (ankle) signed a five-year, $25.1 million contract extension in December 2011, and he erased any doubt in 2012 when he ascended among the NFL's elite centers. He played all 1,097 snaps despite battling an ankle injury which hampered him early in the season. He developed into a leader, and just missed out on a Pro Bowl selection and a $500,000 escalator as a result. Sullivan and OT Matt Kalil are expected to be fixtures for many years to come.

Vikings | Christian Ponder happy with Matt Kalil selection

Thu, 03 May 2012 08:01:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder said he is excited with the addition of OT Matt Kalil in the NFL Draft. Ponder feels Kalil will provide the protection he needs to go through all of his reads. "It is huge," Ponder said. "A lot of time last year, it didn't necessarily have to do with the protection. A lot of times I wasn't comfortable getting to my third, fourth reads, checking the ball down. Instead of just checking it down when a guy is wide open, I'd just run ... That's something I have to get away from. It's easy to break the habit. It's just going to make it so much better having full confidence in the protection."

Vikings | May not be interested in Matt Kalil

Mon, 23 Apr 2012 06:12:55 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said left tackles like Southern California OT Matt Kalil are not the game-changers that teams are expected to choose so early in the NFL Draft. "You've got to really weigh your options," Frazier said. "Because the philosophy (in the NFL) has always been to get the game-changer. And left tackle is not necessarily the game-changer. Usually game-changers are the guys who can score you points. Receivers. Quarterbacks. So what are we measuring that left tackle against? It's a loaded debate."
