In this episode:
We start this episode getting caught up on what the boys have been up to since their last recording in January and how everyone is adjusting to life on lockdown due to COVID-19. JR walks us through the challenges of raising twin girls while juggling radio appearances and writing his 2020 draft guide. Zay is walking and keeping Myles on his toes. And Yinka takes us through the whirlwind of his preparation for his role in The Covenant.
Next up the boys get into the Stefon Diggs trade and what it means for the Vikings going forward in 2020 and beyond. Myles wants to know “the why” behind Diggs wanting to leave. Friend of the show, Matthew Coller wrote a great article on that subject which you can read here.
Felt weird to me that the Vikings traded a player at the center of one of their best moments and we moved on quickly. So I took the last 2 years of reporting and tried to determine how the relationship between Stefon Diggs and the Vikings fell apart https://t.co/mS93OHwhqY— Matthew Coller (@MatthewColler) March 26, 2020
JR gets into the “mass exodus” in the Vikings defensive backfield and gives us some defensive backs the Vikings might like in the upcoming draft.
- Jeff Gladney
- Jaylon Johnson
- Amik Robertson
- Trajan Bandy
