Dye comes to the Minnesota Vikings with a variety of starting experience under his belt. During four years at Oregon, Dye appeared in 48 matches and recorded 391 tackles. Dye has shown that he can make plays against both the pass and run, and bring some versatility to his game.
The newest defender of Minnesota Vikings projects as a situational linebacker who can support in coverage from the jump. He is sound in coverage as well as has a ton of length in his favor when he stands at 6-foot-3.

The results of NFL championships are not clear yet
March 29, 2020
Looking forward to the penultimate week 16 of the regular NFL season, there is still plenty of room to win for the NFL Playoffs.
While the three teams have won their divisions and the other five are certain that they will make it to the playoffs, four more points remain and the ability to take a little break in the final round makes it more palatable.
At AFC, Baltimore Ravens won the leadership positions in the North and Kansas City in the West. Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots defended their playoffs but still had to fight for the final spot in AFC East when they faced Gillette Stadium.
Patriots now have a victory first, so if they don’t lose to Bills, the reigning champions will win their share. Elsewhere in the AFC, Houston Texans are joining AFC South with a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road.
NFC has only one established split winner and it’s Drew Brees leading New Orleans Saints, who has won NFC South with a wide margin.
However, the four teams in NFC have the same 11-3 record so the battle for the first round is goodbye. Green Bay Packers are one of those four teams and they can guarantee their division by defeating rival Minnesota Vikings, who can then secure a playoff berth by not losing that match.
The difficult 7-7 situation in NFC East could be over, if the Dallas Cowboys beat rivals Philadelphia Eagles in the City of Brotherly Love – both teams 7-7 with Dallas currently own a break-break due to Win the first encounter. Winning the cowboy means they can advance to the playoffs with a score of 8-8.
While a lot of teams are facing the opportunity to take their places and ease the pressure until the final week, there are five teams fighting for two play-off positions at AFC and four teams in NFC.
Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers are the most likely candidates to proceed at the AFC but the challengers of Tennessee Titans and even Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders are still alive – almost none, but still alive. In NFC, it belongs to the Dallas and Philadelphia battles, while the Los Angeles Rams remain absent from NFC West and the Minnesota Vikings are still unsure.
Which 2020 prospects have met with the Vikings so far?
March 16, 2020
During the previous couple of months, the Minnesota Vikings have met with numerous prospects who they could choose at some stage in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Minnesota Vikings were busy this offseason attending all-celebrity video games and the combine and meeting with as many prospects as they could.
A number of those are just a brief whats up and maybe a brief discussion in among drills, even as others are a more formal sit down down where Vikings’ coaches and scouts can surely select the brain of those gamers.
Those conferences are very essential due to the fact it’s far the Vikings threat to get to understand these possibilities on a personal level. They don’t have to go see them live to recognize what they run inside the 40-yard dash, or how a long way they can lengthy bounce.
There are also oodles and oodles of tape on just about each unmarried prospect imaginable, so the team already is aware of what they’re able to at the football field.
It’s getting a experience of what makes these children tick that’s so essential. The hardest thing to measure on a capacity player is their coronary heart and desire for the game. those conferences are the Vikings’ best hazard to get a feel of that.
Trey Adams – OT (Washington)
Trey Adams already turned into speckled with purple flags due to his lengthy damage history, after which in drills, Adams simply seemed out of shape. He turned into wearing a very good-sized gut, and his arms and lower body lacked any seen signal of muscle definition.
His workouts had been many of the worst on the combine. He changed into so slow inside the 40-backyard dash that rich Eisen nearly beat him. He turned into additionally mentioning the rear in the relaxation of the checking out. at the least he became open and honest in his interviews with groups but ordinary, this guy didn’t assist his inventory on the combine.
The Vikings took a while and met with Adams and it does make sense. They need a young left address of the destiny with Riley Reiff nearing the stop of his time with the group. Adams changed into once seen as a pinnacle-flight left address prospect earlier than suffering knee and lower back accidents. The Minnesota Vikings had been smart to have their docs take a near have a look at him. if they don’t see any continual troubles with his accidents they may give him a scientific clearance.
along with his lengthy injury records and bad exercising, he must fall to the 1/3 day of the Draft. If he does and the Vikings like him sufficient, they might take him and potentially have a scouse borrow on their hands if he can regain his shape prior to suffering the ones maladies.
Trevon Diggs – CB (Alabama)
The Minnesota Vikings had to already be acquainted with Trevon Diggs.
Diggs has extraordinary length, and the speed to go together with it. He’s a former huge receiver who has been gambling cornerback for the previous few seasons. He can persist with his guy like duct tape and has precise footwork and quick hips. His lack of production is a bit concerning, however as a former extensive receiver, he’ll recognize what the person he’s overlaying is making an attempt to do and he might be much less vulnerable to head fakes and now not chunk on double moves.
Diggs also can be a viable return alternative for the Vikings, using that explosive velocity to put the crew in desirable subject role. He didn’t fully compete at the integrate as he recovers from a foot harm, so perhaps the Vikings desired to convey him in and get a closer have a look at how this is progressing. Diggs has an awesome hazard of finishing up in crimson, and the Vikings assembly with him to in addition their assessment makes a ton of sense.
Looking back the 100th NFL American football season (Part 1)
March 14, 2020
The NFL 2019 American football season officially opened on September 5, 2019 and it is also the 100th league season.
Based on the performance of each team since the 2018 football season and some changes that each team has made during the last break, sports analysts have made some predictions about the situation of each team and the high and low ranks.
Their in the tables for this year. However, from here to the end of the season, there will certainly be many changes. In fact, this happened after the Indianapolis Colts quarterback (pitching) pitcher Indianapolis Luck suddenly announced his retirement. Since the training camps opened in the summer, the Colts have been named one of this year’s strong teams.
But Luck’s ankle injury kept shaking and he decided to leave the pitch. Without Luck, arguably one of the best NFL quarterbacks, the Colts will not be as strong. While New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs are said to be the two strongest teams of the AFC team and one of these two teams will represent AFC in this year’s Super Bowl championship.
While the NFC team can mention the two teams New Orlean Saints and Los Angeles Rams. These are also the two teams that met in the Conference Championship last year and Rams defeated Saints to reach the Super Bowl. This will be interesting if the two teams clash again in this year’s semi-finals.
(New England Patriots, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins)
No matter how good a team is, at some point it is imperative to go down, but until that happens one has to accept that the Patriots are still the strongest team in this year’s table. Despite losing Rob Gronkowski, but Julian Edelman and James White are still very reliable catchers for quarterback Tom Brady.
The defense is quite strong, and most importantly, Bill Belichick is still their coach, so right now Patriots is included in the list of teams of this year’s championship round probably not too early. The Jets will do their best to follow the Patriots, but will probably only win 8 and lose 8 in the qualifying round.
Bills is a very high team and only average. Particularly Dolphins is said to be one of the weakest teams this year, because both the orchestra and the defense are poor.
Best Minnesota Vikings fourth-round picks of the last decade
March 8, 2020
The Minnesota Vikings haven’t had a ton of achievement drafting within the fourth spherical over the last decade. they have got, but, hit on a handful of alternatives inside the spherical.
Over the last decade, the Minnesota Vikings have form of struggled to find talent inside the fourth spherical of the NFL Draft. They seem to have greater misses than hits, but they’ve nonetheless been capable of land some first-rate gamers in this spherical that falls smack dab within the middle of the draft.
The Vikings have mostly discovered position gamers whose contributions might not continually show up at the stat sheet. They were able to land one celebrity, but for the most part, they appear to have neglected on most of the people of their choices.
No longer protected on this listing is former Minnesota offensive lineman, T.J. Clemmings. The hassle was he performed so poorly that he can’t be taken into consideration an awesome pick regardless of all those starts.
Then there’s a guy like Gerald Hodges who had one decent season for Minnesota however the general public of his manufacturing got here with other groups, so he was left off as properly.
That being said, allow’s cross over a list of the Vikings’ 5 exceptional draft alternatives within the fourth round from the final decade.
Jarius Wright – WR (2012)
Jarius Wright became selected via the Vikings in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He become seen as a receiver who could make snatch grabs working out of the slot and that turned into exactly what he changed into.
notwithstanding being criminally underused in his time with Minnesota, Wright turned into nevertheless capable of grind out 153 receptions for two,039 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Wright turned into high-quality operating out of the slot. He ran good routes and he had a number of the most suitable fingers at the whole group. It regarded like each time the Vikings wanted a massive seize on 1/3 down, they might look Wright’s manner and he could usually come through. It was hard to see him go away after the 2017 season.
Wright spent the closing two seasons with the Carolina Panthers. He had comparable manufacturing there in comparison to what he had at some point of his time with Minnesota, broadly speaking being a 3rd or fourth choice who made grabs that stored drives alive.
It become currently said that the Panthers aren’t going to pick out up Wright’s 2020 alternative on his agreement making him a free agent this yr.
It’s not going Wright returns to Minnesota, but he’d be welcomed lower back by way of the enthusiasts. He’d also ease right returned into that role of the slot receiver and the Vikings could advantage from having this sort of dependable goal returned with their huge receiving corps.
Rhett Ellison – TE (2012)
The Vikings grabbed Rhett Ellison in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. They used him as type of an H-again, that’s ordinarily a fullback/tight give up hybrid role.
Ellison had a efficient run with Minnesota in his 5 seasons with the crew. He started over 40 video games and whilst he didn’t placed up big numbers, he made grab grabs in key conditions and he was regularly used as a blocker inside the run sport.
Whilst now not being a huge offensive hazard, he’s the kind of hard-nosed participant coaches love, as he became willing to do the dirty work like blocking and gambling unique teams.
Ellison left Minnesota in loose corporation and signed with the the big apple Giants in 2017. He has gone directly to have a stable three years for the Giants so far and he was really a terrific preference by means of the Vikings in the fourth spherical of the 2012 NFL Draft.
NFL American football Championship of 2019-20 (Part 3)
February 29, 2020
2. New Orleans Saints
Although the New Orleans Saints American football team is only the third seed and must play from the first round (wild card), it is still considered the strongest team in the NFC group. The Saints lost one or two main players in the defense due to an injury, but the view from top to bottom was still a complete squad.
Quarterback Drew Brees has looked young, agile since returning to the pitch after a thumb injury in Week 8, and his absence in five matches turned out to be a boon for the 40-year-old. this. Near the end of last season, Brees started to get tired, but in the final qualifying match, he and his teammates crushed Carolina Panthers.
Currently, Brees plays no less than any pitcher, and the whole team is equally rhythmic. Running back Alvin Kamara may say playing less than last year, but in the last two matches of the qualifier he played very sharp. And to Michael Thomas, during the entire football season, no one seemed to be able to block the catches of this player.
If the Saints can clear the Minnesota Vikings barrier in the first round, they will play the Green Bay Packers in the second round on Green Bay. Winning away is not easy, but at this point, the Saints play better than Packers. Winning two away games to advance to the Super Bowl final is a huge challenge, but this is the team that can overcome that challenge. So let’s see if the Saints can do it.
3. Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs were lucky in the final week of qualifying. The Patriots unexpectedly lost to the Dolphins and opened the Chiefs to get the second seed and took a break in the first round of the championship.
3 ways the Vikings can land Tua Tagovailoa inside the 2020 NFL Draft
February 22, 2020
Trade Diggs for a top-five choose
There was masses of talk approximately the future of wide receiver Stefon Diggs in the dual cities this offseason. Cryptic tweets from the player and Minnesota’s desire to transport huge earners which can be contributing to their profits cap regulations only delivered fuel to the fireplace.
Buying and selling Diggs may not be the wisest flow given his high level of play on the field, but it is a move that might deliver the Vikings a higher chance of taking Tua Tagovailoa within the first spherical of the 2020 NFL Draft.
A group like the New York Giants, who has the 4th ordinary pick out this year, might be a willing alternate accomplice. There is no telling what the Giants offense could be like with Diggs, Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, and Evan Engram going ahead.
Whether or not they might be inclined to element with their No. 4 selection in 2020 and probable other belongings remains to be seen. ny does have extreme deficiencies on the shielding aspect of the ball and they may determine to maintain the receivers they have and improve their secondary with a person like former Ohio country cornerback Jeff Okudah.
Every other stumbling block for Minnesota is that they nevertheless may not get the threat to draft Tagovailoa although they acquire the fourth typical choose from the Giants. The Detroit Lions currently have the No. three choice and they’ll no longer need the Vikings to get their hands on a player that would do their playoff and NFC North title chances extreme damage for the next decade.
Trading away Diggs has its execs and cons, but it would take away Minnesota’s fine downfield danger that might abate modern-day gunslinger Kirk Cousins and his possible inheritor obvious in Tagovailoa. It represents a huge threat, but one the Vikings might be inclined to take.
Bet the house
Assuming the Cincinnati Bengals take Joe Burrow with the primary choose this spring and the Washington Redskins pick arguably the first-rate participant in the 2020 NFL Draft in former Ohio kingdom shielding give up Chase young, then Tua Tagovailoa is going to be in play from selection No. 3 onward.
This indicates the Vikings are going to have to make a big provide to move up from the 25th pick. It can even bring about them transferring their pinnacle three selections this 12 months, their pinnacle from next year, and their first from the 12 months after.
It won’t be the Lions Minnesota could be handling and Detroit may even have aspirations of drafting Matthew Stafford’s lengthy-time period substitute at the location with the No. three pick out. this will all rely on who they pick out at three before a large scramble starts at pick out No. four.
If Tagovailoa passes the Lions, then the Vikings providing a king’s ransom would possibly trap the Giants to make a deal and save you the Alabama standout from touchdown with the Miami Dolphins on the fifth usual choice.
This might seem incredible, however it’s miles some thing Minnesota has completed before. The Vikings received the services of strolling again Hershel Walker from the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 for 6 draft alternatives and 5 gamers; Jesse Solomon, Isaac Holt, Darrin Nelson, David Howard, and Alex Stewart.
The notorious trade enabled the Cowboys to draft Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Kevin Smith, and Darren Woodson. This become a catastrophe for Minnesota and one they might be cautious of repeating.
If the Vikings are going to double down on Tagovailoa, it’d be out of man or woman and jaw-losing. particularly thinking about his injury issues and the sacrifice they’ll must make.
Trade Cousins and selections
Some other alternative that may at ease the offerings of Tua Tagovailoa for the Vikings is identifying a manner to transport contemporary quarterback Kirk Cousins to the Dolphins.
Cousins is heading into the final yr of his $eighty four million deal and he’s coming off the first-rate season of his profession that resulted in a journey to the seasoned Bowl. His inventory has by no means been better despite the fact that a few nevertheless doubt his capacity to get his team over the hump.
A likely contract extension seems to be a protracted way off as Minnesota adopts a be patient method before making some other full-size monetary investment in Cousins. imparting Miami a demonstrated beginning quarterback, their first and 2d-spherical alternatives this 12 months, and a first-round selection from next yr could really warrant attention.
This is a huge commitment for a player coming out of university, however Tagovailoa might be special. If the Dolphins have doubts about his longevity, then they can tackle a quarterback like Cousins for a year earlier than trying to the 2021 NFL Draft for their lengthy-time period substitute and get extra excessive-give up alternatives to aid their rebuild.
One aspect Minnesota will now not need to do need to this situation manifest is throw Tagovailoa into the deep give up. They could need to herald a veteran quarterback who can preserve down the fortress for a bit and permit him to return to complete fitness in the course of the 2020 season. Then Tagovailoa can make a actual go of things all through his 2d year inside the wake of Cousins’ absence.
