Tuesday October 25th, 2011

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian met with head coach Leslie Frazier on Monday and would like to stay with the team, according to ESPN.

Frazier said that the two would meet again on Tuesday, but Berrian, who was inactive for the second time in three weeks, is not guaranteed to stay with the team, ESPN reported.

"We'll make a decision about how we want to handle things going forward," Frazier said. "We're going to have a little meeting of the minds, and see where we are."

Berrian, who was originally in the starting lineup before being scratched on Sunday, said he would like to stay with the team and would take a pay cut to do so, according to ESPN. Berrian wouldn’t provide any information about the situation or offer any feelings about it at his coach’s request, according to ESPN.

The wide receiver admitted that he’s tried to put the controversies about his playing time and performance in the past.

"But one way or another, something comes up," Berrian said.
