Riley Reiff Trumps Matt Kalil

The Matt Kalil project is done. It’s time for the reign of Riley Reiff.

Matt Kalil is no longer a member of the Minnesota Vikings. He’s a Carolina Panther. It still hasn’t sunk in for me yet. Probably because he missed almost all of last year with a hip injury. Looking back, the fourth overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft really only had one great season in Minnesota — his first. The past few seasons, a growing number of Vikings fans labeled Kalil as an overpaid, average lineman with an attitude problem.

Kalil simply wasn’t the left tackle the Vikings needed him to be. The team confirmed such when they replaced him this offseason with another 2012 first-round pick, Riley Reiff, who will now anchor the left side of Minnesota’s offensive line.

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!

Recap Of Vikings Minicamp – Day 3

The Minnesota Vikings wrapped up their three-day Minicamp Thursday. The team’s one-hour practice included individual drills, situational training, and more red zone work.

A very “cordial” Mike Zimmer seemed happy with the current state of the team. It should be noted, however, that the head coach may have been in good mood because of some news he received from his doctor.
