The Madden NFL 12 roster update is set to go live for on Friday, and with it comes a list of changes for the Minnesota Vikings. There's sixteen changes overall for Minnesota, and 11 of those have to do with player rating. Unfortunately, seven of those 11 are decreases to overall rating, following the team's loss to the Detroit Lions. Some of them are questionable, but a lot of them are significant, which only hurts the team on Madden.
For instance, both quarterbacks in Joe Webb and Christian Ponder receive decreases, despite one (Webb) playing much better than the other. The most significant decrease comes to linebacker Chad Greenway, who is falling from 90 to 89 - only a one-point drop, but significant because he lost the 90 overall. On the positive side, defensive lineman Jared Allen is once again moving back toward 99, going from 96 to 97 overall in this update. Make the jump for a full list of changes.
