Busy Weeks Ahead At Winter Park As OTAs Begin Tuesday

Posted by Mike Wobschall on May 17, 2010 – 9:52 am

The last 2 weeks have been a bit slow in terms of Vikings news, but that’s about to change beginning tomorrow because Organized Team Activities (OTAs) are set to begin. The Vikings have 14 days of OTAs scheduled over the coming weeks and will wrap it all up with a mandatory 4-day minicamp in June before taking a break until the commencement of training camp later this summer.

The first set of OTAs will begin tomorrow and will run through Friday and I suspect they will involve primarily rookies and selected veterans (this is how it’s been done in the past under Head Coach Brad Childress). Wednesday’s OTA is open to the media and Childress will have a press conference at some point that day. Every other day of these OTAs will be closed to the media, but will have coverage of those days so be sure to stick here to keep up with all the action.

OTAs 5-14 will happen between May 24 and June 10, with media availability and press conference schedules to be determined.

    I am hoping that TJ or Sage will make a GOOD impression during the mandatory 4-day mini-camp and at training camp this summer. I am NOT saying that I don’t want Favre to come back.

    I would like to see a great improvement from TJ and Sage.

    Knowing what kind of work ethic they have, I’d be surprised if Peterson and Shiancoe didn’t show up. Every time you hear about these guys, it’s always something about how they are trying to be at the top of their game. As for defensive players, Henderson and Winfield would be two of the most likely candidates to appear if it weren’t for their injuries. But we still have plenty of hard workers on the team and I’m sure that Kevin Williams and Jared Allen are going to be making plenty of noise at camp.

    On the other side of it, it would be nice to hear that certain offensive linemen are focusing more on the upcomming football season than their personal recording studios. It’d also be nice to learn that Edwards has finally decided to come back to the winning team. The longer he draws this out, the less likely it will be for him to start, espescially when he only barely beat out Robisson for the starting position last year.

    Pat, I think I can safely say that EVERY Viking fan wants to see more OUT of, if not more of, Jackson and Rosenfels. It appears to me that both of them are getting a little long in the tooth to break out and be a first tier starter in the league, however. Seems like one of those if-they-don’t-have-it-by-now-they-never-will type situations. They can spend every waking hour in the film and weight rooms, but if they can’t take that preparation and make it pay on sunday by now…. forget it.

    Here’s hoping that we don’t suffer long under the not-so-steady hand of T Jackson WHEN he takes over this offense.
