Vikings Training Camp – Walkthrough Day 2

Day 2 at Vikings Training Camp was a tad chilly and windy. The conditions weren’t ideal, but it gave me a chance to see all three quarterbacks’ throws as they zinged through the air.

2014 Minnesota Vikings Training Camp Access: Day 1.5

Good evening from Mankato! What a day! We went from heavy rain this morning to sunburnt arms this afternoon. Oh well! Let’s get into it! You know… for some reason I envisioned Mike Zimmer-run Vikings’ practices to be a bit more intense. It was a pretty low-key day for the most part. There were a few flashy plays (no Cordarelle Patterson was still out with a foot injury), but...

After quiet first years with new clubs Aaron Dobson and Greg Jennings vie for FSLR's ultimate sleeper title
