Continued: Vikings looking at DT Floyd for special teams

Frazier has talk with Jennings

Frazier said he talked with receiver Greg Jennings about his comments in Thursday’s Star Tribune in which Jennings implied that former Packers teammate Aaron Rodgers considered himself bigger than the team.

“Yes I did, and hopefully there will be no more reporting on that with Greg Jennings,” Frazier said. “We had a little conversation about that, so we’re moving on.”

Asked why he had the talk with Jennings, Frazier said: “We’re the Vikings and we want to talk about us and what we’re trying to get done here. He understands that. That’s where our focus has to be. We have so much work to get done. We don’t really want to be looking at and describing other teams, other teams’ players. It’s us. We got to focus on us. He’s good with that.”

Attitude helps Webb

Joe Webb is likely on the bubble to make the 53-man roster. But Webb certainly seems to have the backing of coaches as he continues his quarterback-to-receiver position change.

On Saturday, both Musgrave and Priefer lauded Webb’s selfless approach and overall exuberance.

Musgrave said Webb still has many details to iron out as a receiver but has been willing to put in the work.

“Joe has an aura about him,” Musgrave said. “He’s very positive.”

Priefer, meanwhile, continues to look for special teams roles for Webb, potentially eyeing him as a return man, a gunner for punt coverage or as an asset on the kickoff return and punt return units.

“He’s kind of a freak of nature,” Priefer said. “He’s a different athlete. He can run. He can jump, he can move.”
