Gossett, a sixth-round pick of the Vikings this past year out of Appalachian State, spent camp with the Vikings and was signed to the practice squad on the first day practice squads could Minnesota Vikings T-Shirts be formed.To take his place, the Vikings went through a. . .sigh. . .changing of the guard, signing guard Landon Turner to their practice squad.Turner, who won the Jim Parker Trophy for the best offensive lineman in college football (as given by the Touchdown Club of Columbus) in 2015, was a first-team All-American and first-team All-ACC that season as well. Even with that pedigree, he surprisingly went undrafted out of the University of North Carolina in 2016. He then signed with the New Orleans Saints, and appeared in seven games for them as a rookie with one start in his rookie season. He was then on the Saints’ practice squad in 2017 and most of 2018, but was waived back on 24 October.So, with that reshuffling, and the moves we saw late last week, the Vikings’ practice squad now looks like this:WR Jeff BadetWR Chad BeebeOT Adam BisnowatyLB Reshard CliettDT Curtis CothranOL Cornelius EdisonTE Cole HikutiniCB Craig JamesG Landon TurnerUnless the roster page on the Vikings’ website is off , it appears that the Vikings still have an open spot on the practice squad. We’ll see if they fill that opening in the next day or two here. The Minnesota Vikings secured its second consecutive victory. Minnesota is now with an above .500 record after beating the Arizona Cardinals 27-17. The Vikings improved its record to 3-2-1, and is in second place in the NFC North (Green Bay plays on Monday Night Football against San Francisco). Now that we are six games through, here are three takeaways I gathered after the Arizona game:Defense is coming aroundLook, I’ve seen tweets on twitter about how the Vikings’ defense is the worst in the league based off a couple of horrendous performances (get over yourselves). I wonder how those people are feeling after the defense allowed 10 points to the Cardinals, and only allowed six points through three quarters against Philadelphia. For the second week in a row Minnesota’s run defense has allowed under 100 rushing yards. Two weeks ago against the Eagles, the defense allowed 81 rushing yards, and against the Cards, only allowed 61 yards off of 20 carries. The Vikings have only given up one rushing touchdown in the past two weeks. Although Cardinals’ quarterback Josh Rosen threw for 240 yards, the defense made sure not to let the Cards get in the end zone, which is the point. Minnesota sacked Rosen four times. Danielle Hunter had a pair, Harrison Smith and Mackensie Alexander both recorded one. Also, Anthony Harris stepped up big, literally. He jumped in front of a pass intended for Larry Fitzgerald, and managed to grab his first NFL interception. The offense is fineDespite a banged-up offensive line Minnesota Vikings Hoodie , the offense still seems to know how to get points on the board. Sure, the offense has a few hiccups throughout the game, but not as many as some would think. Through six games, Kirk Cousins has thrown the ball for about an average of 333 yards a game. He has 1,921 passing yards, 12 touchdowns and only three interceptions. Now, people can say what they want, but Arizona has a pretty respectable defense, besides the run game. Cousins still managed to throw the ball 233 yards, even though the run game ran for a total of 199 yards. With Dalvin Cook out, trusty veteran Latavius Murray ran the rock 24 times for 155 yards, and took one to the house. That was Minnesota’s first rushing touchdown this season, he even threw in a nasty stiff-arm to get in the end zone. Even rookie Mike Boone broke loose for a 20-yard carry. Treadwell is showing his worthLet’s be honest, Laquon Treadwell has come a long way since that disastrous performance against Green Bay. He was targeted six times in that game Fran Tarkenton Jersey Black Friday , and only caught two passes. Since then, by each game, his consistency seems to be progressing. After that performance, he’s been targeted 19 times, yeah that’s right, captain Kirk doesn’t give up on anyone. Out of those 19 targets, he’s caught 15 of them. Against Arizona, he was targeted four times, and caught every pass thrown his way. He managed almost 10 yards a catch with 38 receiving yards. Treadwell is only one reception away from tying his season high in catches. I really want to see Treadwell become something , especially after seeing what he did at Ole Miss in the SEC. It looks like he’s coming around, along with his confidence. Slow and steady wins the race, I guess?
