Morning Hot Links: Breakfast News for May 24, 2012
Lots of tasty tidbits this morning. Some more OTA news, some caution re: Adrian Peterson's rehab, more stadium kerfuffle, fallout from Titus Young and more!
Green Bay Packers
Zach Kruse keeps us up to date with where rookie linebacker Nick Perry has been lining up at OTAs.
We've been talking about who might be the second running back and if James Starks will stay healthy—but Tyler Dunne says the Packers don't worry about the running backs and neither should we.
Fox Sports' Ryan Kartje says that not only does Charles Woodson not have an issue moving to safety—he feels like he already does.
Kevin Seifert remembers Daunte Culpepper's determination to start Week 1 post traumatic leg injury in 2006 and worries Adrian Peterson is running down the same path. I do think the difference is, Peterson is in his prime while Culpepper was past his and not half the athlete Peterson is to begin with.
We'll find out—I do agree with the concern that he might be rushing things. Vikings fans would rather him miss the first week or two and have him the rest of 2012 than back Week 1 and hurt by Week 3.
Just when I think I'm out—they pull me back in! Eric Roper of the Star Tribune says opponents of the Vikings Stadium plan (set to pass on a vote Friday) are rallying the troops to try and kill the plan.
Anwar Richardson says coach Jim Schwartz is not giving a timetable for the return of Titus Young.
That's not ominous or anything. The team is still saying he's not suspended, but as he's told not to come to OTAs I think that's parsing hairs.
How do I know it's a slow news period? ESPN has taken the time to project where all the NFL teams will be in 2015. Steve Schrader has the story at the Free Press and Lions fans can sleep easier now—ESPN has future you ranked sixth.
More from Seifert, who has some tasty tidbits from yesterday's Bears OTAs over at ESPN.
Bad news for Johnny Knox fans—Mark Potash thinks he could miss the whole 2012 season. In many ways, not a shock, but a lot of folks were very optimistic, at least until he showed up this week 30 lbs lighter.
