On Thursday, Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer invited the media members that frequently cover the Vikings out to Winter Park for lunch, a film session, and also took questions in advance of free agency which gets underway next week.
Below is a Twitter recap of what Zimmer said...
Zimmer has talked with Matt Cassel, told him he wants him back. But "there's a lot of pretty girls looking at him right now." — Ben Goessling (@GoesslingESPN) March 6, 2014
- Zimmer on Cassel: "I would love to Matt Cassel back, if Matt Cassel wants to be back. I don't know if that will happen." — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 6, 2014
- Zimmer spoke of Jared Allen and Kevin Williams in similar vein -- great players, would be an honor to coach, but they're the free agents. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 6, 2014
- Zimmer on Peterson stumping for Michael Vick: "He has his opinions. I like Adrian a lot. … I don't know anything else." — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 6, 2014
- Zimmer said he hasn't decided if he'll call defensive plays. Likely will feel out through first couple preseason games. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 6, 2014
