It's a new coaching regime in Minnesota, and with that will obviously come some sweeping changes.
Among those changes will be some personnel moves that will probably come as a surprise. It happens every summer at almost every training camp in the league: Some players will get cut that will surprise everybody.
For the Vikings, one player who seemingly might have been in trouble as camp opened was returning starting left guard Charlie Johnson. So far, Johnson doesn't seem to be in trouble at all, as he's taking all of the first-team reps and seems to be performing just fine.
All football coaches are keen on continuity in their offensive lines; it simply makes sense. When you know what the guy next to you is capable of and what his tendencies are, you can go about your own tasks with more confidence.
The Vikings have had the same five starters on their offensive line for consecutive seasons, and so far that doesn't look like it will change in 2014.
However, as reported by Derek Wetmore of 1500 ESPN, Norv Turner has expressed an interest at seeing what some of the younger linemen can do as training camp wears on.
Two players who would be pretty surprising cuts are fullback Jerome Felton and wide receiver Jerome Simpson. However, as reported by Aj Mansour of KFAN.com, both of them aren't getting the number of reps you would assume in training camp, which could be indicative of things to come.
Felton would surely be a casualty of a schematic change, where Minnesota might be looking for a fullback with a little bit of versatility to his game. He is purely a lead blocker. Simpson, on the other hand, could be facing a league suspension, and with that looming, the Vikings coaches might be looking to see if some other receivers on hand could be worth keeping instead.
Again, we're just over a week into camp. There are plenty of surprises to come.
