Vikings Territory Breakdown: Special Teams needs

Kirk is adept at providing plenty of verbiage without really revealing much (not unlike this article), yet Joe Oberle, senior writer for and and Mark Craig from the Star Tribune and will be here to break it down and mine it for every essential morsel. In fact, Kirk offered a glimpse of his duties under new head coach Kevin O’Connell’s offense, comparing to his time with flashcards “trying to memorize plays and terms and formations and protections and just the rules around all those things so it becomes instinctual” to an eighth-grader cramming for a quiz. A very Kirkian response in my opinion.

Mark Craig has been out at TCO for OTAs and will be on hand at the VT Breakdown podcast to give us a report. The lads will also talk about the latest Vikings news, including wideout Dede Westbrook coming in for a workout, the signing of wide receiver Albert Wilson to a one-year contract, Kellon Mond’s dad comments on his son in Zim’s doghouse (captured by the Pioneer Press’s Chris Tomasson) and the untimely and tragic death of former Vikings CB Jeff Gladney.
