Minnesota Vikings podcast: What to do with Cordarrelle Patterson?

Cordarrelle Patterson has the talent but hasn’t been able to parlay that on offense. Will he, or do the Vikings need to look for other ways to use him? Plus, what’s left to build on the roster, and why Mike Zimmer remains refreshing.

Can the Minnesota Vikings really rely on Cordarrelle Patterson to step up his game as a receiver? Tim Yotter of Viking Update and Jim Souhan of the Star Tribune discuss the history, what Mike Zimmer says about it and how Patterson might be able to become more involved. That kicks off our latest episode of the Male Pattern Purple Podcast.

Plus, will a new rule on kickoffs affect Patterson or have the desired intent that the NFL was seeking? The two answers: yes, and we doubt it.

We also discuss other items from the Vikings:

  • What’s left to build on the roster?
  • Will the pro days of WR prospects hurt them?
  • Zimmer continues to be “blunt”
  • Should there be concern with Blair Walsh?

And all of our usual segments:
