The Vikings hit the field for their first full-contact workout Friday afternoon. Over the next several weeks, things will become clearer to Leslie Frazier and his coaching staff about the players who will make the final roster. Here's a position-by-position look at what they'll be watching for in Mankato.
We’ll have our eyes on Christian Ponder, checking to see if his decision making can be more reliable, his deep throws more accurate and his leadership galvanizing. Read about the timeline for making those judgments here.
