Although the Vikings seemed to be completely out of whack in the 2nd game of the preseason. We can always manage to find a bright spot when it comes to rookie of the week.
This week award goes to rookie punter Jeff Locke. Locke saw quite a bit of action on Friday night punting 7 times with 3 landing inside the 20 yard line and 1 boomer that went 61 yards.
While it isn’t ideal for a punter to win the rookie of the week award, he was clearly the top rookie of the 2nd preseason game. Any doubts on why Minnesota opted to move on from fan favorite Chris Kluwe, should be squashed (for now). All signs are pointing to Locke being a solid punter for Minnesota in his rookie year.
Stat line: 7 punts | Avg. 39.7 | 3 punts inside 20 yard line | Long of 61 yards
