Minnesota Vikings: What We've Learned Through Week 1 of Training Camp

The Minnesota Vikings are a week-and-a-half into training camp and will open up their exhibition schedule next Friday night at TCF Bank Stadium against the Oakland Raiders.

There is clearly a new vibe at Vikings training camp, as new head coach Mike Zimmer has immediately put his stamp on the proceedings. There is an energy and an expected raised level of intensity at a camp where so many starting positions and roster spots are on the line.
