In the inaugural edition of the Purple FTW! Mailbag, I answer some of your questions tossed in through Twitter, Facebook, and the Purple FTW! Voicemail.
• Did the Vikings do a good job filling needs in the offseason?
• Trades that could still be made in 2015
• Would I do ____ for a Vikings Super Bowl?
• The affects of Fusco moving to left guard
• Why I got into podcasting
• Why I refuse to watch “The Avengers”
A fun little bite sized morsel to get your through the midweek hunger pains on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
An Andy Carlson Joint.
The NFL Draft is over and we have a brand new class of Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings to welcome into the fold. We welcome Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) back to the friendly confines to break down Ricks 10 draft picks along with UDFA palooza!
5.5 hours… On the air…
The first round of the NFL Draft is in the books and thank you all who listed to the LIVE Stream right here on PurpleFTW.com and Vikings Territory. The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings have a 2nd shutdown corner to pair with Xavier Rhodes, Adrian was NOT traded, and Trader Rick did not live up to his name. Even though the first round was a bit… Vanilla… We still had a great time talking Vikings Draft with out fantastic guests and your tweets throughout the show. We chopped up the stream into podcast form. Thanks for listening and making Purple FTW! possible!
All the podcasts after the jump.
We don’t want to beat the Adrian Peterson situation to death, and there have certainly been plenty of headlines surrounding the running back and Minnesota’s desire—or lack thereof–to trade him. At this point, it seems that GM Rick Spielman does not plan to deal Adrian Peterson. But is it all a smoke screen from Slick Rick?
This morning, Cris Carter may have “let the beans out of the bag” in regards to Peterson and where he will play the 2015 season. The former Vikings wide receiver said the following:
I’m under a gag order on the Adrian Peterson situation. But I believe something’s gonna happen. But I can’t talk about it.
