After going through several rounds of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) over the last few weeks, the entire Vikings team — for the most part — will gather at Winter Park today for a 3-day minicamp that will run through Sunday. This will be the last time the team formally gathers prior to training camp, which will get going in late July down in Mankato.
Players that are not expected to be at Winter Park include QB Brett Favre and DE Ray Edwards, who is a restricted free agent (RFA) and has not yet signed his tender from the team, though he is expected to do so before the June 15 deadline. RB Adrian Peterson is also expected to miss a portion of the weekend to attend “Adrian Peterson Day” in his hometown of Palastine, Texas.
From a fan’s perspective, vikings.com will have you covered from start to finish. As you probably know by now, the vikings.com Blog is your best place for frequent and sometimes exclusive access and updates, and that will be the case again this weekend, so make sure to check back often for updates on the goings-on at Winter Park.
Head Coach Brad Childress is scheduled to address the media on Friday night and Sunday morning, and we’ll have those press conferecnes available via on-demand video shortly after they conclude.
One thing to keep an eye on will be the weather. The team loves to practice outdoors, but it appears as though there’s a good chance of rain both later today and tomorrow, so we’ll see if the team is forced to shift things inside.
