2019 Vikings Training Camp/Preseason

Recommended Posts

Thank god. This is the dullest part of the year for sports.

I can't wait for the WR3 battle, to see what the DL rotation is going to look like, and to see what Mike Hughes is going to bring to the table this year.

Agreed.  Even with the Twins playing somewhat well, it's still very dull for me.  I just can't seem to get into any other sport.

Honestly I do miss it being in Mankato.  There is something about camp where the players leave their homes, live in a different spot, eat in a different spot and practice in a different spot.  Sure they have more stuff at their current location but for a camp I would want it to be a little bare bones and basic.  

What dudes just commute to camp from home?  Great for the Vikings because they control all the revenue, for the food, parking, and every single thing around there.  So money making for them but for team building will see.  It is professional spots so maybe that does not matter as much, still was cool and unique going to camp and changing the players environment.

 

 

 

I will say never realized Brian Robison was this funny.  Dude that builds camaraderie big time with the team.  If he is that funny and cordial on camera imagine off camera.  Curious who that is for the Vikings current group of players.  Guys is a character for sure.

That would be a big, fat no.  We still got 17 days before the first game.  It'll still be a little while before we see a depth chart.

Well, if you have a subscription to the Athletic, they do have an early depth chart there, but it's more speculation than anything.

Hughes and Morgan are on the PUP list to start camp...Bower and Shamar Stephen are on the NFI list.  Bower will be out quite awhile, as he tore his achilles while working out on his own.  

Quote


Hughes, tight end David Morgan and wide receiver Brandon Zylstra were placed on the physically unable to perform list on Friday, prior to the first full-squad workout. Defensive end Tashawn Bower and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen were placed on the non-football injury list. They all remain on the active 90-man roster and can be reinstated to rejoin the team for practice at any time during the preseason.

DT could be an issue if Stephen can't fill in soon. Don't like Johnson much to have a significant role. Mike Daniels would be nice.

Bradbury isn’t the only man in the middle with the 1s to start things off.
