Zimmer Talks Free Agency, Quarterbacks and More With Beat Writers

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

  1. 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
  1. 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
  1. 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

Key point with Allen will be a pretty big scheme change in #Vikings' D. Defensive ends don't put up as many big sack numbers in Zimmer's D. — Ben Goessling (@GoesslingESPN) March 6, 2014

Mike Zimmer asked about his impression of FA CB Chris Cook "My impression is he probably shouldn't be tweeting our conversations." #Vikings — Master Tesfatsion (@MasterStrib) March 6, 2014

  1. 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

MEDIA: Key Dates - Voluntary Vet. Mini Camp 4/28-5/1, Rookie MC 5/15-5/18, OTAs 5/28-5/30, 6/3-6/5, 6/9-6/12 and Mandatory MC 6/17-6/19 — Vikings PR (@VikingsPR) March 6, 2014
