Welcome to the Vikings Daily Opener. Today, we have some interesting stories to cover.
Get the latest news on your Minnesota Vikings with the Vikings Daily Opener! The team is gearing up for the upcoming season with a strong focus on improving their performance and filling key positions. Through the OTAs, coaches and fans have been given a glimpse of the team's potential for the season ahead. With the opener just around the corner, the Vikings will continue to evaluate their roster and make moves to ensure they have the talent needed to succeed in the highly competitive NFL.
In a recent article titled "By The Numbers: The Beautiful Mystery That Was The 2022 Minnesota Vikings," Saivion Mixson of VikingsWire highlighted the Vikings' above-average performance in fourth-quarter comebacks and Justin Jefferson's ability to make big plays anywhere on the field, which opened up the offense for everyone. While their defense ranked 28th in points allowed and 31st in yards allowed, they were opportunistic in spots and ranked 9th in the league in turnovers caused. However, their performance was not enough to keep defensive coordinator Ed Donnatel's job, and the Vikings' defense will need a significant overhaul if they want to compete in the upcoming season.
In other news, the Vikings have been making significant changes to their scouting department, and the addition of Matt Kelly as their west coast scout could prove to be a valuable asset to the team. The Vikings are also reportedly bringing in XFL quarterback Jordan Ta'amu for a workout, adding to their quarterback roster of Kirk Cousins, Nick Mullens, and fifth-round pick Jaren Hall. Finally, Vikings tight end Ben Ellefson announced his retirement from football, citing injuries as a significant reason for his decision.
