If you’ve been patiently waiting for some big news about the Minnesota Vikings to cross your internet browser. . .well, ladies and gentlemen, I advise you to buckle your safety belts and strap on your helmets for this one.
NFL will release preseason schedule at 4 pm Monday. Expect a date with #Browns. The teams have played every summer since 2004.— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) April 8, 2017
Yes, everybody, the National Football League will be releasing the 2017 preseason schedule on Monday at 3:00 PM Central time. There will, apparently, be a show on the NFL Network to break everything down because. . .well, hey, why wouldn’t there be?
Obviously, we have no idea who the Vikings will be playing this preseason or which of the four preseason contests will take place at U.S. Bank Stadium. Will we see any of the Vikings’ regular season opponents? Will any former Vikings that moved on this offseason be coming to town? All of that will be revealed on Monday afternoon.
As far as the schedule that everyone actually cares about, Adam Schefter is reporting that the league is targeting the week before the NFL Draft, 17-21 April, for the release of the 2017 regular season schedule.
