Grueling Truth

● By Samuel Teets
A few years ago, the Minnesota Vikings were Super Bowl contenders. Mike Zimmer’s team never built on a 13-3 season in 2017, and they recently tied the worst single-season winning percentage under their 64-year-old skipper. With seven picks in the top 150 selections, the Vikings can brighten their future with a strong showing in the 2021 NFL Draft. Superstar defensive end Danielle Hunter’s future in Minnesota remains unknown. Hunter wants out if the team doesn’t offer him more money, despite the 26-year-old missing the entire 2020 season with an injury. The Vikings already have massive holes along the left side of their offensive line. Hunter leaving would only further erode the team’s once elite core.
