The Vikings hired Mark Uyeyama as their new strength and conditioning coach, bringing him on to replace Brent Salazar (who left for a job with the U.S. Tennis Association). Uyeyama had spent the last nine seasons with the 49ers, serving as their head strength and conditioning coach from 2011-14 before being promoted to director of human performance from 2014-16.

Statement from Michael Floyd's agent, Brian Murphy: Michael Floyd started his 96-day home monitoring on March 13, 2017. During this time period, Michael was tested a minimum of six times per day. For the first 90 days, Michael's blood alcohol content was 0.0 for all of his 500 plus tests. On June 10, 2017, Michael watched movies at his place of residence until 3:00 a.m. During that time, he drank several bottles of kombucha tea drinks, unaware that the drinks contain alcohol. On June 11, 2017 at 5:30 a.m., Michael was tested and his blood alcohol content was .055. Michael was tested again at 5:54 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was down to .045. Michael was tested again at 6:23 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was .044. He then went back to sleep and missed a test at 6:33 a.m. Michael was five days away from the end of his home monitoring. Prior to and after this incident, Michael has not had any alcohol whatsoever since the start of his home monitoring. Unfortunately, the kombucha teas that Michael did drink resulted in a positive blood alcohol content reading. As a result, the Court wishes to hear from Michael on June 26. At that time, Michael will have an opportunity to explain how this unfortunate test result happened.

Zimmer: Checkup shows 'retina is perfect'

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says the retina in his right eye that has required eight surgeries is "perfect" as he prepares to take a little break before training camp.

Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Zimmer said his retina looks "perfect" after his latest check-up; his vision is 20/100 in his right eye at this point, but it should improve over time. Doctors have told Zimmer there's a 20 percent chance of him having issues with his left eye, but they're hopeful he'll be able to catch any issues early.

The stuff of legends

Few receivers were as dangerous going deep as Randy Moss, who's set to join the Vikings' Ring of Honor next season. In a player's first seven seasons, only Hall of Famer Jerry Rice had more receiving TDs than Moss.
