Vikings | Bernard Berrian a non-factor

Tue, 27 Sep 2011 11:19:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian has only one catch for 17 yards through three weeks this year. He was targeted four times in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions and two came in the fourth quarter. The team wants to use Berrian as a deep factor, but QB Donovan McNabb's inaccuracy and the poor pass protection have ruined those plans so far. "There were a few times where we tried to target Bernard, but I think we'll continue to try to work on getting him the football," head coach Leslie Frazier said.

Vikings | Bernard Berrian a focal point of the offense?

Mon, 29 Aug 2011 01:14:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian needs to resume his role as a deep threat to help take some pressure off WR Percy Harvin working underneath and RB Adrian Peterson in the ground game. Berrian flashed some of that potential on a 49-yard touchdown catch in the team's third preseason game.

"Bernard Berrian is really the guy we like to see be able to do that for us. Michael Jenkins has that kind of capability as well but we're counting on Bernard to be able to make the type of plays he made on that first drive. If that does happen for us, we have a chance to be an explosive offense," head coach Leslie Frazier said. He seems to have chemistry with QB Donovan McNabb, which is something he didn't seem to have with QB Brett Favre.

Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave is making it a point to make sure Berrian isn't forgotten like he was in previous seasons. While there was speculation Berrian may be a salary cap casualty, strong play and a restructured contract appear to make him a lock to make the team's final roster.

Vikings | Bernard Berrian will have great year according to head coach

Fri, 29 Jul 2011 23:47:05 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said bolstering the team's group of receivers is not the team's current focus. He also noted that WR Bernard Berrian will have a "great year" for the Vikings and help stretch the field. Berrian's name has been tossed around often as a possible cap casualty, as he has a $3.9 million salary and a salary-cap hit of more than $6 million this year. There is no telling if Berrian would stick with the Vikings should they sign a free-agent receiver.

Vikings | Several players fail to attend workout

Thu, 02 Jun 2011 06:47:10 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder had hoped to bring together a larger group of teammates for workouts this week, but several veterans who had committed to attend didn't show up as expected Wednesday, June 1. WRs Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian, RB Lorenzo Booker and TE Visanthe Shiancoe had been expected to join a group of seven players who worked out at the IMG Madden Football Academy, but none showed up, citing a variety of excuses. "I thought it would be hard and probably should have had better planning," Ponder said of scheduling the informal minicamp right after the Memorial Day weekend. "We'll definitely do it again and hopefully a bunch more guys will show up ... I talked to a few guys, some other guys we couldn't get a hold of ... We got some good work in. To be around some of the guys was good for me."

Vikings | Bernard Berrian dealing with a lesser role

Sat, 09 Oct 2010 14:27:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Bernard Berrian said his attitude needs to change, reports Tom Pelissero, of 1500ESPN.com. Berrian played in 85.5 percent of the team's Week 1 plays and 89.2 percent of their Week 2 plays, but saw his playing time to drop to 58.8 percent of their Week 3 plays. When asked if he's happy, Berrian said: "Good question. Anytime a player's reps get cut or anything of that nature happens, a player's never going to be happy." Berrian said rotating in and out of a game is more of a challenge. "You don't really know what's going on. It's a little bit harder to find out what your role is but you just have to take your shots and roll with it," Berrian said. Berrian's role will likely be reduced even more with Randy Moss now on board.
