VikingsTerritory‘s Purple Rumor Mill is a two-day chronicle each week. All the week’s rumors are lassoed and plopped in two spots — articles on Saturday and Sunday — for review. Today is the June 18th edition.

Remember — rumors are rumors. What you read on weekends in these pieces is what the world is talking about pertaining to the Vikings, not necessarily items that will come to fruition.


Rumor: The Vikings could or should trade Patrick Peterson and Eric Kendricks.

Rumor: Gabe Brkic will have a long and fruitful career with the Green Bay Packers.
Rumor: Kevin O’Connell, per power rankings, is the worst head coach in the business.
