The P/PTSD Perspective: April 20th, 2024

1) Could the Falcons’ Tampering with Kirk Cousins Lead to a Huge Prize for the Vikings?: Mike Florio has been discussing the tampering possibility for a while. Recently, he suggested that the NFL could intervene in a major way to help compensate the Vikings for the Falcons’ infraction.

2) ESPN Drops Bombshell Trade Theory for Vikings: ‘Tis the season for draft theories. The 2024 NFL Draft is now less than a week away, so there’s no shortage of speculation for what could transpire. The Vikings — armed with a pair of 1sts and with a glaring need at QB — are often the spark that lights the speculative fire.

3) Josh Dobbs Speaks Out on His Decision to Leave Minnesota: The 2024 offseason has been one of great change for Minnesota’s QB room. Kirk Cousins, of course, demands all of the headlines, but Joshua Dobbs also tooks his talents elsewhere. He reflected on the decision to leave.

4) Another Vikings Star Gets Put into Draft Trade Rumor: If this one happens, I’ll eat my hat. The GM is hard at work collecting and retaining excellent players, especially when there’s youth involved. Shipping one out — even if it comes with the tremendous upside of a highly-picked passer — makes very little sense.

5) Report Suggests the Vikings Have a “Preference” for Their QB Target in the 2024 NFL Draft: Good chance Minnesota has a certain possibility in mind for the best case scenario. After all, the GM has spoken pretty extensively about running through various scenarios, so he very likely has a strong opinion about the best outcome. Keep in mind, though, that there are plans in place to pivot if Option A falls through.
