The Minnesota Vikings wrapped up their spring practices on Wednesday with the last day of mandatory minicamp. Now, they’ll scatter for a little rest and recuperation and prepare to hit the ground running later this summer at training camp.
After spending weeks singing the offense’s praises, the defense got a little shine as the intensity stepped up a bit.
It’s hard to envision the unit not being any better than it was last season, at the very least. That obviously isn’t saying a lot considering how badly they struggled in 2021. But improvement on the defensive side of the ball could obviously be a turning point for the team.
It’ll be interesting to see what things look like when they return from break and the pads come on. Here are some highlights and notes from the final day of minicamp.
