Purple Podcast, ep 64: Three Vikings position battles to watch on offense Updated: 3 days ago On this episode of the Purple Podcast, Andrew Krammer and Judd Zulgad break down three position battles to watch this summer now that the 90-man roster is fairly set.

We end by asking the annual question: Can Marcus Sherels stay on this roster as the punt returner for another season? What are the Vikings other options at punt returner? Stefon Diggs? Jarius Wright?
