Ep. 135: Inside Harrison Smith’s contract, breakout candidates on defense

By Andrew Krammer

On this episode of the Purple Podcast, Andrew Krammer, Judd Zulgad and ESPN.com’s Ben Goessling break down Harrison Smith’s five-year, $51.25 million contract extension with the Vikings.

We look up close, discussing the relationship that made the deal possible in June and we take the view from afar and talk about the impact of franchise tags, the importance of avoiding them and how NFL contracts are reported in media.

Krammer poses the question — Which offensive player not named Teddy Bridgewater stands to benefit most from an improved offensive line? We’ve got three different players.

And finally a mailbag, including breakout candidates on defense and a rattlesnake bite to Goessling.

The post Ep. 135: Inside Harrison Smith’s contract, breakout candidates on defense appeared first on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
