Vikings Once Again Searching For Strength and Conditioning Coach

According to Field Yates’ Twitter feed, Minnesota Vikings strength and conditioning coach Brent Salazar has left the team and has taken a position with the USTA. The United States Tennis Association is where Salazar wanted to be in light of his tennis background, as he played tennis in college at New Mexico.

It is officially time to begin the countdown.

Eighty-nine days separate fans from an epic, Monday Night Football showdown between a potentially historic Mike Zimmer defense and Sean Payton’s New Orleans Saints offense, which, once again, projects to be extremely dangerous behind stalwart signal-caller Drew Brees, 2016 breakout receiver Michael Thomas and, of course, the game-breaking talent of recently-acquired running back Alvin Kamara.

New Orleans’ other running back acquisition this offseason, Adrian Peterson, is indeed scheduled to attend his 11th-consecutive Vikings home opener. But, instead of donning his trademark purple and gold No. 28 jersey, Minnesota’s all-time leading rusher will take the field “funded” by his success in a down-right abhorrent and equally vile black and gold uniform — a color scheme eternally linked to the organization most individually responsible for his lack of a diamond-plated finger weight.

Peterson, of course, was canonized as a Saint following a late-February decision by the Vikings to move forward without their 10-year franchise icon. The opportunity to test his value on the free-agent market for the first (and potentially only) instance during his career was widely expected, but Peterson was never forced to play through the inherent pressure of an expiring deal — contract year.
