Minnesota Vikings 53 Man Roster

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings begin their two days of practice with the Cincinnati Bengals before Friday’s first preseason game in Southern Ohio (but really Northern Kentucky). Mankato Training Camp is in the rear view mirror. Impressions were made, but still plenty of time for jobs to be won or lost. But that won’t stop us from recklessly speculating who will (Teddy Bridgewater) and who won’t (Antone Exum) be in Purple to start the 2016 season.

Follow along with our 53-man roster projection on the Google Doc.

All that and other “I MADE THE ROOSTER!” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Donate to #MoreThanWords
Coach Mike Zimmer at the FanHQ event last month

DONATE TO #MORETHANWORDS TODAY

Thanks in large part to Fan HQ‘s autograph event (of which they are holding another great one for baseball fans) and the collective generosity all that chose to donate to #MoreThanWords, the great nation of Vikings fans, the 2016 version is hours away from closing up shop for the year… and that $10,000 goal is officially in the dust.

As of this posting, the campaign has raised $14,602 which will go directly to the Mike Zimmer Foundation. In addition to the money raised which will benefit the youth supported by the Foundation, an impact has been felt in a number of additional ways that really help describe what inspired this effort while also defining what it means going forwards.

When the Minnesota Vikings face off against the Cincinnati Bengals for their first preseason game of 2016, they will reportedly be without cornerback Terence Newman in the lineup. Actually, he will not even be on the sidelines in Cincinnati.

The Vikings 37-year-old corner’s specific injury is unknown, but he will remain in Minnesota while the rest of his teammates travel to Cincinnati.

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!
