Start of training camp will be delayed

This is a prediction that I hope will be wrong, but it doesn’t seem like the NFL is going to start on time. The league has already prepared for this in their regular season schedule, but any delay in the season means that training camp will also be delayed at least for a couple of weeks.

That aspect alone will make the Vikings offseason an interesting one. With the team beginning going through a virtual offseason program this year, the evaluation process of their new players (and again, Minnesota has 15 of them not counting new defensive tackle Michael Pierce) will be difficult.

Because of that, we may not get the steady drip of news that we usually get throughout May and June and the longer the pandemic extends, the less likely we have football on time.

Hopefully, this is not the case because a team like the Vikings needs all the reps they can get to get their rookies up to speed. The team has handled a majority of this offseason well and if they can continue to do so, they should be ready to go whenever the season gets underway.
