The P/PTSD Perspective: September 9th, 2023

2) The 1 Cut the Vikings May Live to Regret: Always tough decisions when getting to the end of roster cuts. Unfortunately, a talented player didn’t make it onto Minnesota’s practice squad. Instead, he’ll be helping Jordan Love begin the next era in Green Bay.

3) Report: Vikings, Justin Jefferson Have a Contract Extension “On the Table:” A lot of Vikings fans are concerned about this one. The season is nearly here, so agreeing to a deal that keeps Mr. Jefferson in town for the next little while is a top priority.

4) In Recent Days, the Vikings GM Has Been Undoing Past Misses and Mistakes: No one is perfect, a reality that even extends to NFL executives. On the one hand, the Vikings’ GM deserves a bit of criticism for missing on some trades and picks. On the other hand, the Vikings’ GM deserves some praise for recognizing a sunk cost and moving on.

5) Rookie Vikings WR Gets High Praise from His QB Ahead of Week 1: No shortage of hype for the young wide receiver. If things proceed as expected, Addison is going to be in a featured role very early in his rookie season.
