By now you’re probably accustomed to the Monday Morning Mailbag, which appears in print each Monday morning. But now we’re taking the Mailbag to the next level and incorporating a video edition to make sure we answer as many of your questions as possible.

As is the case with the Monday Morning Mailbag, we need your help to complete the video version of this project. To submit a comment or question for the video Mailbag, send an email to me at You can also include your question in the comments section below this entry. Remember to include your name and town with each question.

Also, we’re looking to make this a regular feature on the website, and to do that we need a catchy title. Feel free to include your suggestions for a title as well.

The Boys Are Back In Town

Posted by Mike Wobschall on April 23, 2012 – 6:28 am

This is a big week for the crop of prospects hoping to be selected in the 2012 NFL Draft, with the 1st-round set to begin on Thursday evening and the draft scheduled to conclude by Saturday afternoon. But it’s also a big week for many current NFL players, including members of the Vikings.

The Vikings 9-week voluntary offseason program begins today and runs through the third week of June, which essentially means many Vikings players will be in and around Winter Park for the next 2 months preparing and training for training camp and ultimately the 2012 season.

Under provisions and rules set forth by the brand-new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Vikings offseason program will consist of three phases, with each phase governed by a different set of rules that will regulate the players’ interaction with coaches, contact during workouts and drills, and more. Click here to read more about the Vikings offseason program.

To mark the beginning of the offseason program, we’ve also identified and introduced you to new faces on the Vikings roster as well as highlighted several players who could be poised for breakout seasons.

As if the NFL draft wasn’t enough this week, the abyss of the NFL offseason is pushed even further into the rear view mirror thanks to the launch of the offseason program. Let the fun begin!
