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 – PurplePTSD wants to continue the trend from last year of trading back in the 1st Round of the draft, and here’s why.

2 – Derek Stingley Jr. should be a rookie perhaps available in the draft for the Vikings, and Josh Frey explains why that’s enticing.

3 – There was a lot of good from quarterback Kirk Cousins in 2021, especially in the first two-thirds of the season. Cole Smith breaks down all of it.

4 – Retaining a punter as an offseason priority? Yep. Kyle Joudry has a rationale.

5 – The one you’ve all been waiting for — the future of Aaron Rodgers as a member of the Green Bay Packers.
