The Minnesota Vikings are on the back-end of a tough season, and have a lot to think about heading into the offseason. They've got a top draft pick and injuries to their star running back to think about. Though their season is ended, there's a Madden NFL 12 roster update going live on Friday that brings some changes. For Minnesota, this will likely be the last update, while teams in the playoffs will likely continue to receive changes.
There's nine changes overall for the Vikings, and all of them are changes to player rating. Despite losing to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, they have more players going up than down, but just by one. Unfortunately, some of the players trending downward are significant, like tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, but they do have some significant increases as well, such as defensive lineman Jared Allen.
