#FutureFriday: Podcast with Gophers’ Eric Murray

Happy Earth Day Vikings Fans! Check out Scotty’s latest interview with potential NFL draft pick and Minnesota Golden Gopher – Eric Murray. Eric was a DB for the Gophers. He stepped up his play as a senior, making more plays behind the line (four tackles for loss) and lining up ball carriers for the big hit, forcing three fumbles. He’s also a special-teams stalwart who blocked two punts in 2014, which will only increase his impact as a rookie on Sundays.

Vintage Vikings Collection: Is It, Or Is It Not, Game-Used?

“Is It, Or Is It Not, Game-Used?” The evidence is strong, but the photos are inconclusive.
