Inquiries Answered: Ideal Trade Asset, 5-1 Fraud, 2023 Departures
The next inquiries are about recent Minnesota Vikings matters, answered by PurplePTSD. Today is the October 21st edition, addressed in a from-the-hip vogue. If you have inquiries, you should e mail them to DustinBakerNFL@gmail.com.
Also, please take note: These are feeling-centered responses. Some responses will be incorrect from time to time. But we’ll consider to hold that to a minimum.
Q: Which trade asset would you pursue for the Vikings if they are actually lively at the trade deadline?
A: Sidney Jones IV, a cornerback from the Seattle Seahawks.
Jones IV looks to be on the trade block, as Seattle curiously has not employed the gentleman a great deal in 2022. If he desires a modify of landscapes — and the Vikings can no cost up cap area — welcoming Jones IV would be great.
As a entire-time starter last yr, he fired up a 70.2 quality from Professional Soccer Concentrate in 2021. Jones IV would not automatically have to start off over Cameron Dantzler or Patrick Peterson, but CBs normally get damage. That is a famed Mike Zimmer quote, in fact.
Including Jones IV for insurance adds up, and he should really be available for a late-round draft choose.
Q: What do you say to the people today who imagine the Vikings, at 5-1, are frauds?
A: If winning 5 video games even though losing one is fraudulent, properly, let’s proceed to be frauds. It’d direct to a 14-3 report. Good by us.
We entirely recognize that there is an underwhelming truly feel to Minnesota’s 5-1 get started. The only point remaining to do is find out if the Vikings are a decent staff that is been pretty fortunate — or if they’re a great group nibbling at eventual greatness.
No subject what “side you’re on,” a 1st-yr head mentor beginning his occupation 5-1 is huge. That actuality can not be bent for anyone’s narrative.
Q: Which players on the Vikings 2022 roster are unlikely to return next yr?
A: We’ll provide a record of people who may perhaps not be back again, but do not get in touch with it gospel. Considers these men on the bubble to return for 2023:
- (CB) Kris Boyd
