Vikings Training Camp Starts One Week From Today
The Minnesota Vikings are set to open training camp one week from today down in Mankato. Many off-season changes give me reason to be curious. New head coach Mike Zimmer, new offensive coordinator Norv Turner, and rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater are some of the biggest additions.
I get excited about the upcoming Vikings season this time of year anyway, but the above mentioned changes -- along with what should be a much improved defense -- have me full of anticipation.
Here are some key dates:
- July 24: Training Camp officially opens.
- Aug. 8: Preseason game #1 vs. Raiders.
- Aug 15: Preseason game #2 vs. Cardinals.
- Aug. 23: Preseason game #3 at Kansas City.
- Aug. 28: Preseason game #4 at Tennessee.
- Sep. 7: Regular season opener at St. Louis.
- Sep 14: Regular season home opener vs. Patriots.
- Feb 1: Super Bowl XLIX in Phoenix. (Just thought I'd mention it.)
