Believe it or not, the time has already come for the Minnesota Vikings last training camp practice in Mankato for 2016. After today’s final practice in Minnesota, the team will head to Cincinnati for two joint practices with the Bengals on Wednesday and Thursday.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has his team (and myself) up bright and early for today’s practice, but no worries as we still have full coverage of this morning’s activities. So grab a donut, some coffee, or just throw some cold water on your face to wake up and join me for practice from Mankato one last time.

Let’s go!

Vikings Extend Kevin McDermott

Depth chart updates and highlight videos usually drive offseason traffic, but sometimes, it’s the lesser stories that deserve the headlines. And for the Minnesota Vikings, a signing that ensures consistency on special teams is in it of itself, important news.

As first reported by Ian Rapoport, the Vikings and long snapper Kevin McDermott have agreed to a four-year, $4 million extension. McDermott originally signed a two-year deal last offseason, but will now remain in Minnesota through 2020.

Vikings' Depth Chart Begins to Take Shape

Training Camp for the Minnesota Vikings hasn’t been all that exciting this year. Save for a few one-handed catches from Stefon Diggs and some specular deep shots from Teddy Bridgewater, much remains the same in Mankato. Roster turnover isn’t an issue for the team, free agent acquisitions are performing as advertised, and trust in the organization is at an all-time high.

There’s plenty to be certain about in Minnesota; the strength of the defense, Adrian Peterson’s rushing ability, and Blair Walsh’s renewed confidence. Uncertainty, in a sense, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The Vikings have so much young talent that difficult depth chart decisions won’t make or break the team’s season.

In Minnesota, the front office isn’t asking, “Who’s our quarterback;” they’re debating the hierarchy of a loaded roster. And no matter the final decision, the result will be a 53-man roster with more potential than any Vikings team since 2009.

This morning during walkthroughs, head coach Mike Zimmer gave the media a sneak preview of the team’s ‘Cincinnati’ depth chart. It’s the first unofficial roster of the 2016 preseason and reveals exactly where the Vikings stand after two weeks in Mankato.
