Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 6 June 2023

The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.

The speculation is heating up with all kinds of “stories” about the Vikings trading Cook, releasing Cook, and even keeping Cook. There is a small segment of fans here who believe he will be sorely missed and really do not care about the cap space that could be saved and how that cap space can be utilized. The obvious inference is that they are good with the team kicking more potential dead money into future years for as long as possible in order to keep a favorite.

I think they should move him and if it is via release then they can wait until right before the season. I would not be a fan of this delay but they have to be patient to see if another team will up their offer and/or if Dalvin will take less money. If they wait until right before the season then he would get a lot less money and have to learn another team’s offense on the fly. This could hurt his chances of getting a longer deal.

The art of negotiations!

Could the Vikings’ last draft pick make the biggest impact in 2023?

I would pump the brakes on McBride for this year. If he gets any snaps that would be good going forward.
