Reason No. 3

Minnesota has plenty of storylines to offer

Sometimes it's difficult for "Hard Knocks" to come up with intriguing storylines each year, but the Vikings definitely have plenty to offer in this department.

Minnesota wide receiver Justin Jefferson is certainly someone who packs a lot of star power, and he could potentially sign a lucrative extension when he shows up for training camp this summer. If this happens, "Hard Knocks" will definitely want to feature it on their show.

Then you have whatever is going on with Vikings Pro Bowl pass rusher Danielle Hunter. He didn't attend Minnesota's recent mandatory minicamp, so is he going to skip out on a portion of this summer's training camp as well?

What about the rest of the defense? The Vikings have a new defensive coordinator in Brian Flores and it would be interesting to get a closer look at how the team is adjusting to his scheme.

Some other storylines could include Kirk Cousins playing on the final year of his contract, Minnesota moving on from a number of notable veterans this offseason, Lewis Cine's road to recovery after his gruesome injury in 2022, and Alexander Mattison's transition to becoming the team's new No. 1 running back.


When it comes to this year's Vikings, the "Hard Knocks" crew would have a very easy time coming up with storylines for each episode of their show.
