Minnesota Vikings - Philadelphia Eagles

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings bye week has come and gone, but at least the Packers losing and FOX Sports graphics department kept us entertained. We scrounged up some loose talking points to kick start us back into football mode as Mike Zimmer and the Vikings try to win a dozen Lombardis this year.

Today’s Random Ass Talking Points Include:
• Our Top-3 NFC Competitors Are…
• Aaron Rodgers is NOT Washed
• Is Sam Bradford Legit in the MVP Race?
• Jake Long Starts Sunday @ Philly, Right?
• Vikings MUST Take Advantage of 2016 Window
• Life on the Practice Squad
• Taylor Heinicke Returns
• Bye Week Medical Roundup
• Mike Zimmer is Gonna Destroy Carson Wentz
• Outlook on the Rest of the NFC North

All that and other “Bye to the Bye” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

In a move that some may consider a bit desperate, the Minnesota Vikings traded away a 2017 first round draft pick and an additional 2018 fourth round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for quarterback Sam Bradford on Saturday. Apparently, the Vikings felt they needed to do something drastic to achieve success this season after losing quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for the entire season to a knee injury less than a week ago.

Bradford is just the sixth quarterback since 2001 to be dealt to another team in exchange for a first round draft selection. The five who preceded him include Carson Palmer, Jay Cutler, Matt Schaub, Drew Bledsoe, and Trent Green.

On Monday morning, it was announced that longtime Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Phil Loadholt had decided to retire. With his retirement, Loadholt’s spot on the Vikings roster is presumably vacant.

Minnesota now has three openings on their roster before their total number reaches the NFL’s 90-man limit. The Vikings can decide to leave those spots empty before they start training camp later this week, but that would not be any fun would it?

Surprisingly enough, there are still plenty of talented free-agents available that could produce for Minnesota during the 2016 season.
