The sister-site to VikingsTerritory is PurplePTSD.com, and the guys and gals over there roll out the Minnesota Vikings analysis just as much as we do.

Here is some of their top content from the last couple of days:

1 – Since 2006, this man is the best-valued Viking per draft stock (or lack of).

2 – Vikings 4th-Round draft pick Akayleb Evans signed his rookie deal on his birthday. Buh boom.

3 – Kyle Joudry predicts the first few games on the Vikings 2022 schedule.

4 – In the daily video segment, Dustin Baker explains why Kyle Rudolph possibly returning to the team doesn’t have to be a nostalgia-driven ordeal.

5 – PPTSD walks through a re-draft for the Vikings in the Mike Zimmer era.
