Jeff Davidson
Offensive Line

BIOGRAPHY

  • Davidson enters his 4th year with the Minnesota Vikings in 2014 in the same role as the previous 3 seasons. His reputation for technical expertise and fitting schemes to personnel has proved effective as he has guided offensive lines that have paved the way for an NFL top-8 rushing attack each of the past 6 seasons.
  • The 2013 Vikings saw Adrian Peterson earn his 6th Pro Bowl berth in his 7 NFL seasons, break the 1,000-yard mark for the 6th time and score 10+ rushing TDs for the 7th time despite missing 2 of the final 3 games of the season.
  • In Peterson’s absence, the club turned to former 3rd-stringer Matt Asiata to make his 1st career starts in wins over playoff-bound Philadelphia and against Detroit. Asiata tied a team record with 3 rushing TDs, his 1st career scores, against Philadelphia and notch his 1st career 100-yard day with a 115-yard effort against Detroit’s #6-ranked rushing defense.
  • During the Vikings 2012 playoff campaign, Davidson’s offensive line group proved to be a consistent provider paving the way for Adrian Peterson’s 2,097 rushing yard season with the same 5 starting offensive line all season.
  • Following a 4-season NFL playing career that was cut short by injury, Davidson broke into coaching with New Orleans as a volunteer assistant and offensive assistant with the Saints in 1995-96.
  • Davidson played his final NFL season for New Orleans in 1994 after beginning his career as a 5th-round draft pick by Denver in 1990. In 1991 and 1992 he was a 16-game starter for the Broncos as LT and LG respectively, helping the team advance to the AFC title game in 1991 while protecting Hall of Famer John Elway’s blind side.
