Vikings officials say they are still committed to building a new stadium at the Arden Hills site in Ramsey County but that discussions are continuing with Minneapolis and that building on the current Metrodome site is 'workable.'

The reports, via KSTP's Tom Hauser and WCCO-TV's Pat Kessler, pretty much reiterate what the Vikings have been saying the past few days.

Vikings vice president Lester Bagley made the comments as he spoke to reporters this afternoon about the new football stadium proposals submitted by Minneapolis, Shakopee and Ramsey County today.

Hauser is tweeting updates from the press conference as is Kessler.
