2 – The Saints added a second Vikings tight end in six weeks, this time signing Chris Herndon.

3 – Nate Hairston is back, and the Vikings CB room is healthy, writes Kyle Joudry.

4 – Josh Frey examines the 2022 Penn State club for Vikings draft purposes next April.

5 – Henrique Gucciardi breaks down Vikings position battles at training camp.
