2) Things Look Bleak for Former Packers Receiver in 2023: I’m of the opinion that I’ll believe it when I see it. Adams is such a remarkable player. He’s the only receiver in the NFL who has a case for being better than #18.

3) The Vikings Had a ‘Plan B’ in the 2020 Draft if Justin Jefferson Wasn’t Available: The Plan B is a strong player, someone who would make the Vikings better. Jefferson, though, is on a completely other level. He’s a truly unique talent who is still improving.

4) The Portion of a Danielle Hunter Trade That Simply Can’t be Missed: As soon as Danielle Hunter walks out the door, the Vikings begin their search for someone exactly like Danielle Hunter. One wonders, then, about the wisdom of letting him walk out the door. Extend the man.
