Purple FTW! Podcast: Law & Vikings Organized Team Activities (ep. 374) - Minnesota Vikings - 1500 ESPN

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings were back in town this week to start the first of three sets of Organized Team Activities before mid-June’s mandatory mini-camp. Tuesday’s practice lit #VikingsTwitter ablaze with video of Teddy Bridgewater taking snaps. I pontificate about that along with several other OTA talkers. Later in the show, we bring in Joshua Johnson (@DFF_Cog) of Dynasty Football Factory to talk some fantasy implications about the young Vikes. Plus a clip of Matt Vensel (@MattVensel) of the Star Tribune and I chatting about Mike Zimmer’s absence from OTAs due to his 8th eye surgery and both his short and long-term prospects with the team.

Vikings Announce New Headquarters in Eagan

The Minnesota Vikings will soon have a training facility and team headquarters to match the luster of their new home, U.S. Bank Stadium. Yesterday, the Eagan City Council approved the team’s plan to move from Winter Park to a 200-acre site located off I-494 at the intersection of Dodd Road and Lone Oak Parkway, per the Vikings’ official website.

Last January, the Vikings officially purchased the land, but could not develop until Eagan changed the land-use designation from Major Office to Mixed Use. The city did just that, voting unanimously on the issue and opening the door for the Vikings to break ground. According to Vikings.com, the long-term plan includes offices, retail, residential, hospitality and a conference center, as well as an upgraded practice facility and team headquarters.
