At the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, freshly-extended Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer will be addressing the media from Indianapolis.

At the Scouting Combine, teams like the Minnesota Vikings will be evaluating young, talented players hoping to be selected at the 2019 NFL Draft. This includes watching their performances in drills as well as conducting interviews and conducting physicals with the top prospects.

However, big news can also happen at the Scouting Combine which isn’t related to the college players hoping to be selected, as was the case when general manager Rick Spielman announced today that head coach Mike Zimmer received a contract extension through the 2020 NFL season.

Spielman isn’t the only member of Minnesota’s staff who will be speaking at the Combine, as Vikings.com has announced that Mike Zimmer will be meeting with the media on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 10:15 am.

Don’t expect the same kind of massive news from Zimmer’s conference. However, the topic of his contract extension, the disappointment of the 2018 NFL season, and the new additions to the staff are likely to be topics addressed by the media.

You can watch the entire press conference live from Indianapolis on Vikings.com. Plus, those on social media can also catch the stream live on the official Facebook and Twitter accounts of the Vikings.

It will be nice for fans to see Mike Zimmer back to talking about football during this time period where unless you’re the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots or Dallas Cowboys, there hasn’t been a lot of news surrounding the NFL.
