The Minnesota Vikings announced their initial 53-man roster on Saturday afternoon, surprising fans with a handful of unforeseen moves in the process. General manager Rick Spielman has been busy, first trading a seventh-round pick for cornerback Tramaine Brock before making a multitude of difficult decisions regarding the team’s active roster.

There are still moves to be made and other minor details to be worked out, but the vast majority of the Vikings’ Week 1 depth chart is largely complete — football season has arrived.

    Training camp is an intense grind day in and day out, for all who are involved. What the practice highlights don’t show you is the mass of people who are a part of the machine that produces an NFL product every Sunday.

    The modern day NFL, however, is a 24/7 job for so many others who are a part of the Vikings organization, including Viking Territory’s good friend Lindsey Young. You wouldn’t have to spend much time hanging around these parts to bump in Young’s work.

    For more than two years, Young brought a unique perspective to your day-to-day Vikings coverage and explored the personal stories tied to the team. Her work became so well known and respected, it caught the attention of the Vikings themselves, and she departed Vikings Territory to become the first female writer in Vikings history.

    After a little less than a year with the organization, I thought it would be fun to highlight Young’s transition to the NFL. After sharing so many stories with us, it might be nice to hear hers.
