It’s recreation day for the Vikings 2nd preseason activity, with the starters predicted to see their initial motion of the year this should really be a good way to choose the year…or not at all considering that it is preseason with benign offenses and vanilla defenses. I’ll be functioning currently but players I’ll be searching to make an effect:
1) Michael Pierce-it is his initial recreation with the Vikings given that he opted out previous yr, stories in the media show he’s healthful and a lot quicker than marketed.
2) Oli Udoh-he’s the starting up appropriate guard even even though he hasn’t performed the place before, I’m hoping for league ordinary from him…which would be an enhancement.
3) ISM-he experienced a ton of good press and a shoutout from HC Mike Zimmer but didn’t participate in effectively final 7 days, he could cement a roster spot with some quality enjoy on offense and specific groups.
4) Kellen Mond-now that he’s above the plague and had some follow time will he get some run with the next staff and can he show some thing this week?
