The Vikings are here! The Vikings are here! Well, they’re at TCO Performance Center, anyway, for the 2022 Training Camp. It is finally time to start looking toward the coming season, and the Purple story lines are beginning to pop.
There have been some minor roster adjustments coming out of camp (WR Blake Proehl and LB Ryan Connelly were put on the physically-unable-to-perform list to open training camp and a camp body was signed at TE); LB Jordan Hicks was not at the first practice and Troy Dye took his reps; Kellen Mond was seen splitting second-team reps with backup QB Sean Mannion at the first practice—be still our collective heart; CB Nate Hairston’s missed for a non-covid, non-injury, oh and Justin Jefferson made some comments on Kevin O’Connell’s previous stud receiver Cooper Kupp--and more.
Mark Craig, NFL Insider and Vikings writer for the Star Tribune is at his weekly post on the Vikings Territory Breakdown podcast to offer the inside scoop. Craig has a press credential out at TCO and will breakdown what’s been happening the first week at practice. (He is also a Pro Football Hall of Fame voter and may have some insight as to why Jim Marshall, a member of the final 25 on the Senior Circuit didn’t make the cut to the list of12.)
Tune into the VT Breakdown podcast to keep up on all the latest as the Vikings, under new general manager Kwesi Adolfo-Mensah (who apparently is now staying too much?) and head coach O’Connell, get the 2022 season underway. This is a huge training camp for the Vikings and you can always find the inside story here. Tune in and check it out.
