Report card: Low marks for Vikings in free agency

Minnesota threw a ton of resources at its offensive line, but color us skeptical. Even if the group is improved, the Vikings almost certainly won't get their money's worth.

The Bills have waived DE Scott Crichton after he failed a physical. Buffalo claimed Crichton off waivers Monday from the Vikings.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has intensified his knee rehab by running in a pool and working on land, coach Mike Zimmer said. A timetable for Bridgewater's return from a torn ACL and dislocated left knee, however, doesn't exist. "I honestly have no idea," said Zimmer when asked whether Bridgewater can play in 2017. "I saw Teddy in the training room a week or so ago. He's in great spirits, working hard, doing all the things necessary. There's no timetable. I keep getting asked these questions but when he's ready, he's ready."

Vikings spent their draft capital last summer

Minnesota doesn't have a lot of assets in the draft and can thank the late-summer acquisition of Sam Bradford for it. The Vikings sent a first-round pick to the Eagles.

The Bills have claimed DE Scott Crichton off waivers from the Vikings, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates. Crichton, a third-round pick in 2014, had been a disappointment in three seasons with Minnesota, totaling only 10 tackles and no sacks. He has the size (6-foot-3, 273 pounds) to be a rotational depth player at defensive end for Sean McDermott's 4-3 system in Buffalo; he will carry a $933,081 cap number if he makes the Bills' roster.
