Corn Pop - Glad we gave up a second round pick (prob around #40 overall) for a third round pick (prob around #90 overall) for a 6 week rental of Yannick.
Hopefully that’s a sign they’re dumping everyone.
Trade Kyle, Kendrick’s, Harrison, Barr, and Thielen.
Unfortunately Rudolph is building a $20m home in Minneapolis right now so he’s not going to want to leave. Kendrick’s is building a big place too
I read something where someone (speilman maybe?) was saying it’s better to take a draft order loss than overcome having to franchise tag or extend his contract in the offseason. I don’t completely understand how all that works. Where the hell is Hunter anyway? Is he even coming back this year?
If they go to the extreme of dismantling the lineup, I think it’s gotta start at the top, at least with Zimmer. But I think there are some guys you gotta keep. Harrison Smith and Theilen gotta stay, IMO. I know we have a huge cap hit with Cousins, but he’s just not the guy. I’d rather see them start developing the draft pick, or at least look at trying to get Justin Fields, or some other stud who is not Trevor in the draft.
Tgees no point in keeping their guys on the wrong side of thirty if you are rebuilding.
Hunter is out for the year with surgery, and yes also asking to be the highest paid DE in the league.......
Best hope with cousins is to try to trade him packaged with picks to get rid of him but then you lose picks to rebuild.
The vikings are looking at 3-4 years of last place in the nfc north imo.
