Minnesota Vikings Free Agency

Free Agency is rapidly approaching and fans of the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are clamoring for who could be on the Purple’s shopping list. I know the Draft is the bee’s knees, but this episode is focused solely on free agency (until the end). We walk through the level of priority the Vikings should have on their in-house free agents, I reveal my Top-10 Free Agent Wish List, and wrap up with a clip from my new project BULL with Andy Carlson — Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) of The Viking Age walks us through a 7-round (but really 6-round) Vikings mock draft.

All that and more “Free agency is like the Scholastic Book Fair” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings - Roll Safe

Think about it. We roll call through some Minnesota Vikings offseason talking points with friends of the show Luke Inman (Cold Omaha) and Eric Eager (Pro Football Focus). Luke popped in to talk about five draft prospects Vikings should keep an eye on (including three offensive linemen). Plus we added an excerpt from my new project BULL with Andy Carlson, Eric and I had a spirited discussion about potential Vikings free agency targets.

All that and more “Andrew Whitworth: No Matter What” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Here we are, finally and officially having reached the NFL offseason. Let’s take a moment to watch the above video, Xavier Rhodes mic’d up in the Pro Bowl, before moving on to a revival of the ol’ links of the week post. One takeaway on the Rhodes video: he certainly has the temperament of a top-flight cornerback, so we have that going for us. The segment is worth watching just to see him shoot the breeze with some of the best receivers in the game, like Odell Beckham and Dez Bryant.

Now, let’s see what’s happening in the rest of Vikings land.

  • Matt Vensel wrote a quick blog examining what it would take for the Vikings to move back into the first round of the Draft. He uses the 29th pick as a hypothetical target, because the end of the round is the most attainable and realistic scenario. Basically, Vensel says it’s possible the Vikings could use their second- and third-round picks to get back into round one, which doesn’t sound too bad, considering they possess two third- and fourth-rounders. So under this hypothetical, they could end up with a late first, one third, one fourth, and so on. Chances are they’d have to throw in a late rounder to sweeten the pot, but I don’t think anyone would complain.
