Vikings All In With Hockenson Trade?

On Vikings Happy Hour, the gang talks about the big trade for T.J. Hockenson to be the new TE1 and what it means for the offense. They also look at how some of the older players seemed to have found their second wind in their careers. It is a good night for a good bunch of Purple. SKOL!

On this Vikings Happy Hour , the bar is open and we’re talking football! The Minnesota Vikings are coming off their win over the Arizona Cardinals that highlighted how some of the older players like Patrick Peterson and Harrison Smith were playing like they were in their prime. But, the big news of the week came yesterday when Kwesi Adofo-Mensah with the blessing of Kevin O’Connell, traded for T.J. Hockenson, one of the top tight ends in the league from NFC North rival Detroit Lions. Was the trade an indication that the Vikings are all in for the season? Is it equivalent to what the Rams did pushing all the chips in last season? Hopefully, if it was or wasn’t necessarily an all-in move, the results will be the same with a Super Bowl run. Did the trade make the Vikings better? Does this fall into the category of a competitive rebuild like Kwesi described in the off-season? Come and join the discussion!
