The Viking Age’s Adam Patrick and Vikings Territory’s Tyler Haag go over what went down at Minnesota Vikings minicamp and other news related to the team.

Last week the Minnesota Vikings finished up their first ever minicamp at the brand new TCO Performance Center. The next time the Vikings players will be on the practice field together will be at the end of July for training camp.

It was good to see Minnesota’s players on the field for minicamp, but the best part about the team’s three-day practice session is probably that no one suffered any major injuries. A number of teams around the NFL have already lost key players for the entire 2018 season because of an injury sustained during OTAs or minicamp.

On this week’s episode of the Bleeding Purple Podcast, myself and Tyler Haag went over a number of Vikings-related topics including…

  • Dennis Green is going in the Ring of Honor!
  • What could have been if Green wasn’t fired in 2001?
  • Treadwell enjoying Cousins being his quarterback
  • Everyone going crazy over Cousins’ minicamp interceptions
  • Mike Hughes impressing Mike Zimmer
  • Chill out on Terence Newman moving to safety in 2018
  • Still arguing why Cousins is an upgrade over Keenum
  • Brian O’Neill running pass routes in minicamp
  • Adam apologizes for Hercules Mata’afa’s injury
  • Of course T.O. is skipping the Hall of Fame ceremony
  • Tyler will be buying a Terence Newman jersey this year
  • Every Vikings player is on track to be ready for training camp
  • Tweet us your questions for next week’s podcast!
