Minnesota Vikings: Recapping the Latest Buzz Heading into Training Camp
Ann Heisenfelt/Associated Press

Believe it or not, training camp begins for the Minnesota Vikings just two weeks from Friday.

And while NFL fans have been inundated with every little detail from Johnny Manziel's life and the continued mishaps of his prospective teammate, Josh Gordon, things have been considerably quieter surrounding the Purple during their offseason.

That's a good thing.

The last days of summer for NFL players will see Minnesota players relaxing and healing up as they prepare to take on the rigors of an NFL season.

Training camp will have an entire new feel this year for the Vikings as new head coach Mike Zimmer brings a completely different style to the proceedings than that of his predecessor, Leslie Frazier.

Where Frazier was calm and collected to the point of being a bit boring, Zimmer will light a fire under his players and fellow coaches with an old-school football mentality. Zimmer brings longtime head coach Norv Turner with him as his offensive coordinator.

Turner never had overwhelming success as a head coach, but nobody doubts his offensive genius, and Vikings fans look forward to seeing what he can do with a slew of gifted skill-position players at his disposal.

As we count down the days until camp, we take a look at some of the latest buzz surrounding the Vikings.
