TODAY’S VIKINGS SCHEDULE
The Vikings have the day off before reporting back to wrap up camp Wednesday and Thursday.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
The Vikings have six safeties who have started at least 10 games in the NFL, including Harrison Smith, who will start at one of the safety spots. Who will be at the other? The Vikings still have no idea. But I guess it can’t be a bad thing that whoever they pick — whether it’s Jamarca Sanford, Kurt Coleman, Chris Crocker or someone else — has been a starter in the league before.
