The last time we checked in on the best Vikings links from around the web, the team’s roster looked very different. Since then, Minnesota has signed 16 free agents including 11 who played for the team last season.

With a majority of their free agent signings done with, the focus will now shift to what the Vikings will be doing heading into this spring’s NFL Draft. Have their new acquisitions done anything to change Minnesota’s priorities for the Draft?

The first wave of free agency has come and gone. The Minnesota Vikings didn’t land the White Whales the fanbase wanted (Kelechi Osemele or George Iloka), but I think we’re fine settling for the White Rhino in Alex Boone. We dive into him as well as the other depth free agent signings the Purple made. I also take a look at other potential future Vikings still on the market and what the plan should be with our own unrestricted free agents.

All that and other “Stop Typing So Loud, Tomasson” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

The new NFL league year began at 4:00 PM eastern yesterday afternoon, allowing all teams to officially sign free-agents to their roster. At 4:01 PM, a mind boggling amount of contract signings had already been agreed upon throughout the entire league.

The Minnesota Vikings were certainly not shy about wanting to improve their roster yesterday. Spots were filled and depth was added as the Vikings are hoping their new players will help the team repeat as NFC North division champions in 2016.

Splashy? Not really, no. That’s not Rick Spielman’s style, and day one of free agency ends with Vikings Nation’s two most coveted targets—guard Kelechi Osemele and safety George Iloka—signing elsewhere. But there’s a lot to smile about for Vikings fans. The team made numerous moves, most notably bringing in former 49ers guard Alex Boone and former Titans safety Michael Griffin, and resigning Mike Harris, and the refusal to shell out huge money may turn out to be the smart move in the long run (as it often is). And there’s more to come; numerous outlets have indicated the Vikings aren’t done, and there are still questions about whether or not the team will bring back some of it’s own free agents. So, in no particular order, here are a few thoughts and questions after day one:
