We are getting closer to the start of Training Camp for the Minnesota Vikings (and the 31 teams that don’t matter quite as much). On Tuesday, we learned exactly when everything is going to get underway.
For the first time (I believe) ever, the NFL is going to have a unified start for Training Camp, with almost every team getting things started on Tuesday, 27 July. Of the league’s 32 teams, 29 of them will get things started on that date. The three teams that will be starting earlier than that are the Dallas Cowboys (because they’re playing in the Hall of Fame Game), the Pittsburgh Steelers (who are playing the Cowboys in the Hall of Fame Game), and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (who are hosting the regular season opener). The Cowboys and Steelers can start camp as early as 21 July, while the Bucs can start things on the 24th.
Even better than that, the NFL has declared that fans are going to be allowed at Training Camp again this year after being kept away for all of 2020 because of the pandemic. Hopefully that means we can get some more awesome Training Camp coverage for you this season, because you know that nobody does it better than we do.
We will be anxiously awaiting word of what the Vikings have planned for Training Camp this year. As soon as we get word, we will be bringing it to you right here.
Go ahead and mark your calendars, folks. . .as of today, we are two months and two days away from the start of Training Camp for the 2021 NFL season!
