Vikings OTAs: 7 Positions Up For Grabs

The Minnesota Vikings’ organized team activities, or OTAs, began Tuesday. OTAs are offseason training sessions run with the purpose of developing players; or, simply put, practices without tackling. There are no 1-on-1 drills, only team drills.

OTAs can be a good barometer of how the team’s roster is going to shape up come the regular season. Generally, the players who practice together play together. Certainly, there are exceptions.

Lets take a look at several key position battles that will unfold during the Vikings preseason.

Chad Greenway Leads the Way for Cancer Research

Chad Greenway’s name is forever etched in Minnesota Vikings lore. As the team’s fourth all-time leading tackler and three-time defensive MVP, he hangs up his helmet and shoulder pads as one of Minnesota’s most beloved professional athletes.

Greenway leaves behind an unmatched legacy, both on and off the field. His 11-year career—spent entirely in purple and gold—began on a small farm in South Dakota, where he continues to find inspiration in life after football.

“Not only your small town, not only your community but also your family. That’s something I always think about every day in the decisions I make. I truly want to make them proud”

Through his charitable foundation, Lead the Way, Greenway is bridging the gap between his time with the Vikings and his passion for enriching the lives of those in need. Whether you cheered for Greenway on Sundays or donated through More Than Words, his work in the area of cancer research is something we can all be proud of.

These Opportunities Come Once in a Lifetime

Well, not at this exact moment — but very soon.

Teams around the National Football League are scheduling their final handful of meetings and workouts with prospects, as the draft is just a mere three weeks away. The opportunity every team and NFL fans have been waiting for — the chance to fill in glaring roster holes with eager young talent.

The Minnesota Vikings are no different in that they are likely not only as excited about the upcoming draft as fans are, but they also possess multiple roster holes that, if adequately filled in, could take this team to new heights. It is no secret that Minnesota will enter the draft with a rather notable offensive line issue — despite the team’s signings of offensive tackles Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers.

Starting defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd’s career-threatening nerve issue has also caused a buzz within Vikings circles, as 3-technique quickly becomes a question mark if, in fact, Floyd’s career is over. Both Minnesota’s interior offensive line and defensive tackle groups will likely receive an upgrade at some point, but another glaring concern on defense remains — linebacker.
