6 Quotes: Zimmer on New Vikings Floyd, Sutton & Celebrating Bud Grant from Linda's blog

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer hosted a free youth football camp on Saturday for 350 young people.

He spoke with the media that day <a href="http://www.authenticramsproshop.com/choose-cheap-27-tre-mason-jersey.html">Tre Mason Youth Jersey</a> and then called in to KFAN’s 100.3-FM 9 to Noon show hosted by “Voice of the Vikings” Paul <a href="http://www.bengalsproclub.com/andrew-whitworth-jersey-c-1_6.html">Andrew Whitworth Youth Jersey</a> Allen to discuss a decision to take some time to rest and recover from his eighth eye procedure since the fall.

There were several items <a href="http://www.majszy.com/shop-62-ted-larsen-jerseys-cheap-online.html">Ted Larsen Youth Jersey</a> of interest in the two sessions, including his thoughts about the two newest Vikings and an all-time great.

3 notes on adding Michael Floyd:

1) The Vikings signed St. Paul native Michael Floyd on May 10, adding the 6-foot-3, 220-pound receiver to the position group.

“Michael is a big, strong, physical guy,” Zimmer said. “He had a couple of really good years in Arizona, and what we’re trying to do is continue to add as much talent and depth as we possibly can.

2) Floyd, who started his <a href="http://www.teamdolphinsprostore.com/shop-by-players-ryan-tannehill-jersey-c-1_47.html">http://www.teamdolphinsprostore.com/shop-by-players-ryan-tannehill-jersey-c-1_47.html</a>

career with Arizona, spent part of 2016 with New England after an arrest for DUI. Zimmer said the Vikings took multiple factors into consideration when they decided to sign Floyd.

“We always do that <a href="http://www.teamdolphinsproshop.com/shop-by-players-ndamukong-suh-jersey-c-1_45.html">http://www.teamdolphinsproshop.com/shop-by-players-ndamukong-suh-jersey-c-1_45.html</a> and try to weigh every situation, but he’s from here,” Zimmer added. “I think he has a good support system with Harrison Smith and Kyle Rudolph partly. A lot of those things were factored into it.”

3) Floyd arrived in Minnesota last <a href="http://www.teamseahawksprostore.com/chose-cheap-kam-chancellor-31-jersey.html">http://www.teamseahawksprostore.com/chose-cheap-kam-chancellor-31-jersey.html</a> week and will be able to participate in OTAs. Zimmer said he thinks the veteran will quickly pick up the Vikings offense.

“Michael is a very intelligent person, so I don’t think he’ll have any problem catching onto the system or anything like that, but to get out here and do it and be around the other guys and quarterbacks, I think that will help,” Zimmer said.
