Training Camp is officially underway at the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center, and that means that there are highlights for Minnesota Vikings fans to take in. Specifically, yesterday there were a pair of highlight reel catches from the two guys that appear to be competing for the #2 wide receiver spot.
First off, we have rookie Jordan Addison, who made a really nice grab on a throw from Kirk Cousins that threaded the proverbial needle.
Meanwhile, the incumbent at the position, K.J. Osborn, had a very nice grab right in the middle of three Vikings’ defenders on another outstanding throw from Cousins.
Yes, I know, these are guys in shorts and t-shirts and that sort of thing, but these sorts of highlights are pretty great to see because. . .well, we haven’t seen anything relating to the Vikings in about six months or so.
The competition for spots on the wide receiver depth chart is going to be a good one for the purple for the next few weeks. In addition to Osborn and Addison, second-year receiver Jalen Nailor has been getting some pretty rave reviews early on as well. He saw some time towards the end of last season and was a dynamic playmaker at Michigan State, so we’ll have to see if he can make the same sort of jump from Year 1 to Year 2 that Osborn made.
We’ll be bringing you more highlights from Vikings Training Camp as we’re able to.
