Vikes Life: Vikings Kick Off 2020 Offseason with Family Time, Charity Golf 


EAGAN, Minn. – There's no denying that the Vikings season ended before the team hoped it would.

But now that the page has been turned and sights set on the 2020 season, Vikings players are enjoying offseason moments of relaxation, fun and family time before returning to the grind.

Over the next two-plus months, #VikesLife roundups will give fans a look at how their favorite players are spending their down time.

Family time with Hoosdatdude

Safety Anthony Harris spent time with his mom in Miami during the week of Super Bowl LIV.

That beach life Thielen

Wide receiver Adam Thielen also enjoyed some family time, spending a week in Florida with his wife, Caitlin, and two sons, Asher and Hudson.

Thielen took to Instagram to post a carousel of photos from their time in the sun and called it an "amazing week of just being together."

Putting things in perspective

Quarterback Kirk Cousins posted on Feb. 3 that his wife, Julie, underwent emergency surgery and was on the mend in an Orlando hospital.

Kirk and Julie posted subsequent updates the following day that Julie was released from the hospital and recovering before traveling again.

Golfing for charity

Tight end Kyle Rudolph showed off his swing during a recent Pro-Am at Pebble Beach.

Rudolph joined the likes of Clint Eastwood, Bill Murray and Vikings fan Josh Duhamel in the 3M Celebrity Challenge.

The event helps raise money for a number of great causes, including Kyle Rudolph's End Zone at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.

From Pro Bowl to the pulpit

One week after participating in his first career Pro Bowl, fullback C.J. Ham was welcomed by Emmanuel Christian Center as a guest speaker.

Ham shared his faith story with the congregation and met with many members following the Super Bowl Sunday service.

Baby shark do-do-do?

Tight end David Morgan and his fiancée, Langlie, had the opportunity to catch sharks off the coast of Florida.

Morgan posted a photo of the couple holding one of the large – and pretty scary-looking – predators. But don't worry, a separate post by Langlie assured that each of the sharks was released back into the water unharmed.

Serving up some SKOL Service

Stephen Weatherly returned to U.S. Bank Stadium but spent his time behind a service counter rather than on the field.

The defensive end helped serve food and said thank you to U.S. Bank Stadium SKOL Service team members, a moment that was captured by Vikings guest service coordinator Amy Werdine.
