Welcome to the latest installment of the Vikings Territory Training Camp Primer series focusing on Harrison Smith, Andrew Sendejo, and the safeties.

Amidst all of the turnover throughout the Vikings roster from 2016 to 2017, the safety position has changed very little from where it was a year ago. The five men who will compete at training camp in 2017 were all in the same position a year ago.

However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be camp battles or important roles that need to be filled. The safety position’s significance is listed right there in its name — these players are the safety valve for the defense. If they screw up, it’s likely six points for the opposition.

We know what Harrison Smith brings to the table. We know what Andrew Sendejo brings to the table. But who will emerge as a reliable depth filler behind them?

Purple FTW! Podcast: 9 Under the Radar Vikings Training Camp Questions (ep. 381)

Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings Training Camp is less than two weeks away and all of the main storylines have already been beaten to death. Will Laquon Treadwell rebound in year 2? Will Teddy Bridgewater start the year on the PUP? Can Anthony Barr earn his 5th year option? Can the offensive line not be garbage this season? Blah blah blah. So today we decided to take a deeper dive into 9 under the radar training camp questions that I’m interested in.

Today’s Talkers Include:
• What if Trae Waynes or Mackensie Alexander are bad?
• What’s gonna happen with Taylor Heinicke?
• Is Joe Berger still #Good?
• What’s B-Rob’s role in 2017?
• Is this finally the year for Marcus Sherels?
• Does Tre Roberson crack the 53-man roster?
• Is this it for Antone Exum?
• Which UDFA will make the roster?
• Who’s the punter/kicker gonna be?

All that and more “How’s Teddy Look?” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

According to Tommy Armstrong on Twitter, the Minnesota Vikings will not sign the former Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback to the 90-man roster.

Armstrong participated in the Vikings’ recent rookie minicamp, where he shifted from quarterback to running back, and then again to safety.

Despite being recruited as a safety out of high school, Armstrong became a decorated signal-caller in college. He finished his Cornhuskers career first in Nebraska history in passing yards (8,871) and touchdowns (67). Armstrong is a natural athlete that should latch on with another NFL team before training camp begins in August.
