Purple FTW! Podcast

The Minnesota Vikings are bringing back rotational defensive end Stephen Weatherly. Weatherly had spent 2020 with the Carolina Panthers after spending the first 4 years of his career with the Vikings after coming in as a 7th round pick in 2016 out of Vanderbilt. I think it's a smart depth signing and defensive line coach Andre Patterson has to be pumped to get one of his prodigies back in Purple.
