The Minnesota Vikings are reporting to Mankato for the 51st consecutive time for training camp. Here are some of the most interesting stories to follow.
Football is back! … Almost.
Today, the Vikings report to Minnesota State University for their 51st consecutive summer in Mankato. Tomorrow, July 29, training camp will kick off.
With the most talented and deep roster the Vikings have seen in years, the competition will be fierce. No place in the lineup or spot on the roster is certain, with only 53 spots for the 89 current Vikings to fight for.
The Vikings are looking to take the next step toward being a Super Bowl contender, and training camp will be a critical time to develop and evaluate the talent on the roster. Both well-known contributors and unheralded players will seek to improve their game and prove their worth.
As all that action unfolds, there are a number of intriguing storylines to watch.
I’ll be heading down to Mankato myself to cover training camp from August 3rd-6th. While there, I’ll write daily articles recapping the practices and my observations from them, evaluating all the surprises, disappointments, and excitements of camp. Additionally, I’ll be tweeting out my thoughts (@jzingz) throughout the day.
Here are some of the biggest things I’ll be keeping my eye on:
