Welcome back to the Minnesota Vikings Podcast. Running back Alexander Mattison joins (17:37) Tatum Everett and Gabe Henderson to discuss all of the monumental changes he’s seen over the past year. Between working with a new coaching staff, changing his jersey number, being in the final year of his Vikings contract, plus the prospect of being a new father in the very near future, Alexander discusses the positive outlook for his future and the excitement he feels with his position group to get out and showcase their skills. Gabe, Tatum and Producer Jay Nelson also discuss the reality of the preseason kicking in (0:45), the continued leadership steps Kirk Cousins is taking this preseason (3:15), who’s going to step up in the absence of Irv Smith Jr. this preseason (6:15), and all of the fun activations in the upcoming days of Vikings Training Camp (32:09). All of this and more is in Episode 157 of the Minnesota Vikings Podcast.
