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 – Justin Jefferson turned 23 on Thursday, and Kyle Joudry explains his youth is bad news for the rest of the league.

2 – Follow the money for Vikings UFDA contracts, and it will tell you how serious the team is about each player, according to PPTSD.

3 – Ex-Vikings RB Asim Rose heads to Los Angeles where he’ll play from Kevin O’Connell’s old squad.

4 – Dustin Baker discussed takeaways from Vikings minicamp in the daily video segment.

5 – Expect the Vikings to keep a lot of linemen for the 53-man roster, says PurplePTSD.
