Vikings..you know what to do
There are not too many times in life where you get to right the wrongs of people who made mistakes before you. Vikings General Manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah has an easy decision to win over the hearts of Minnesotans. Simply put, SIGN T-MONEY. Arguably a top-3 Minnesota Gopher Wide Receiver and a fan favorite forever. When TJ came out for the draft, almost every Gopher fan stood on the table for Rick Speilman to draft him. But in typical Spielman fashion, he passed on him until he was taken in the 5th round by Tampa Bay. If Kwesi has any brains at all he has to bring Tyler in for a workout and sign him.
A Win-WinAs we look at cuts made around the league, Tyler Johnson was one of the biggest surprises. So why not capitalize on their mistake? You bring in a fan favorite, a Super Bowl Champion, and a solid fill-in the receiver if one of our top 3 gets hurt. If you look at the depth chart, I would way rather have TJ fill in for Thielen instead of Rookie Jalen Nailor or former Iowa Hawkeye Ihmir Smith-Marsette. Not only would he be a solid fit for the Vikings he also helps out in the community and gives back to the city of Minneapolis.
Tyler Johnson is a Baller.Plain and Simple. When it comes to making big-time plays just look for Tyler Johnson. From Gopher upsets to bowl games to Divisional playoff games for the Bucs, when you need a big-time catch he will come up in the clutch.
This Catch in the Outback Bowl is still amazing.Lastly, if he’s good enough for Tom Brady to trust him on the road to the Super Bowl. How is he not an upgrade over Jalen Nailor or Smith-Marsette?
Don’t screw up an easy decision. It would cost you next to nothing and make your whole fanbase happy. Sign the Man and Let’s all Row the Boat at US Bank stadium this year.
