Vikings TC Is Underway In Mankato

July 27, 2012, 6:40 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Vikings TC Is Underway In Mankato
MANKATO, MN -

It's "National Optimism Day" throughout the NFL as 32 teams including the Minnesota Vikings get set to start a new season. Training camp is officially underway for the 47th year in Mankato and without a single holdout or contract dispute, the entire organization is ready to go.

The biggest splash of the day surrounded star running back Adrian Peterson who was put on the physically unable to perform list. The move gives the team flexibility in case Peterson suffers a set back from his severe knee injury from one year ago. Other than that it's all systems go for the purple and gold. Something 2nd year head coach Lealie Frazier was happy to see.

"We needed everyone in that room last night to hear the message that we wanted to get across as a team as opposed to getting it second hand. It's important to have everybody here and eliminate some of the drama that could be there when you don't have everybody there," Frazier said.

"I've had more normal camps than I've had camps where you get all the drama. There's no distractions. We can go to work and everybody can concentrate on what they need to do to get ready for the season," Jared Allen said.

With a young roster veterans like Allen know this two week stretch is critical for the team to continue to grow.
