    Jerome Felton Suspended 3 Games

    If Adrian Peterson is going to run for 2,500 yards this year, he'll have to do it without his Pro Bowl fullback for the first three games.

    The NFL announced Monday that Jerome Felton was suspended without pay for the first three games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Felton was arrested for driving under the influence last summer.

    Felton re-signed with the Vikings this offseason for three years and $7.5 million. He underwent an emergency appendectomy earlier this month and wasn't going to play again in the preseason. The Vikings play the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears on the road to start the season before a home opener against the Cleveland Browns.

    The NFC North division preview is next up on "The Around the League Podcast" this week.

    Jerome Felton Suspended 3 Games

    Bc of his DUI last yr, which was reduced to reckless driving. Why would they wait a year to suspend him?

    seems stupid it took a year to suspend him. i got one a couple years ago, went to court one day, and took about 5 minutes, and was done. couldnt drive for 4 months.

    his penalty seems awfully severe, especially since it got reduced to reckless driving

    Zach Line!! I am actually kind of excited to see this as Felton was a Pro Bowler solely because of adrian. Let's get a younger guy in there with a chip on his shoulder.

    Come on, Felton was REALLY good for us last year. Isn't a HUGE blow, but still.

    Interesting. The Line family is secretly smiling.


    I cant wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and were standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and were all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him hes world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.

    Found this interesting:

    Adrian Peterson - RB - Vikings
    Sep 3 - 8:21 PM

    Adrian Peterson averaged 6.9 YPC when FB Jerome Felton was on the field last season, as opposed to 4.6 YPC without Felton as his lead blocker.

    Felton was Peterson's lead blocker on 201 of his 348 carries. Felton is suspended for the first three games of the season. The Vikings have a few options to replace him. The top candidate is Rhett Ellison. Ellison was on the field as a tight end or fullback on 117 of Peterson's 2012 carries. "All Day" averaged 5.95 YPC in those instances. Zach Line and John Carlson are two other names coach Leslie Frazier mentioned as candidates. The Vikings take on the Lions, who finished No. 16 in rush defense last season, in Week 1.

    Hmmm that is interesting. I expect to see a lot of Line but I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more of some 3 WR sets to in the start to try spread the D out. Kind of why I was a little surprised that Line was kept.
