Vikings Training Camp Night Practice MEGA PODCAST

New, comments

A big group of Vikings writers got together to talk about Training Camp and make projections as to who will make the final 53-man roster.

The gang’s all here!

On Saturday afternoon, a plethora of writers from all corners of the Vikings blogosphere converged at Boulder Tap House in Mankato to record a special episode of the Purple FTW! Podcast. Along with host Andy Carlson was the following star-studded cast:

  • Eric Thompson and Yinka Ayinde from Daily Norseman
  • Sam Ekstrom and Luke Inman from Zone Coverage
  • Arif Hasan from...everywhere
  • BJ Reidell and Drew Mahowald from Vikings Territory

We started by discussing the big news of the day: Linval Joseph’s fancy new 4-year, $50 million contract. We marveled at what a great deal it should be relatively speaking for the team.

From there we went on to democratically project the entire 53-man roster and 10-man practice squad from top to bottom. Much the Vikings will have to do in a few weeks, there were some incredibly tough decisions we had to make, but I think we were all pretty happy with the final results.

Listen to the show here. And now, it’s time to head out to the field for the final Minnesota Vikings night practice ever in Mankato.
