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. SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL!

All that and more “Breath. It’s Just OTAs.” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Purple FTW! Podcast: Michael Floyd's Coming Home and Stuff with Darren Wolfson & Lindsey Young (ep. 372) - Minnesota Vikings - 1500 ESPN

Minnesota native Michael Floyd was officially brought back home by the Vikings on Wednesday. We touched on what that means for the team and the wide receiver depth chart (in-depth in our YouTube video below). Plus we have great macro Vikings chats with our friends Darren “Doogie” Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) of KSTP Sports/1500 ESPN and Lindsey Young (@LindseyMNSports) of Vikings.com.

[Note: Both interview were recorded before the Floyd signing was official. But speculation on fit in 2017 still applicable]

Purple FTW! Podcast: Recounting Trade Rick's Capital Gains with JReidDraftScout & BJ Reidell (ep. 371) - Minnesota Vikings - 1500 ESPN

Trader Rick Spielman landed a phat return on the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings’ 8 inbound picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, trading up twice for running back Dalvin Cook and center Pat Elflein, yet still coming away with 11 selections. To help comb through the picks, we compiled out conversations with @JReidDraftScout (The Viking Age) and BJ Reidell (@RobertReidell) (Vikings Territory & About The Labor Podcast) from earlier in the week on BULL with Andy Carlson. Tune in as better draft minds than I sift through the draft picks, the undrafted free agents, and if Vikings fans should be Bearish or Bullish on the rookie acquisitions.

All that and more “Future Franchise Quarterback Jack Nelson” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
