The Vikings' offense is of particular interest here with the addition of Devin Aromashodu, Michael Jenkins, and of course, Donovan McNabb.
Devin Aromashodu showed flashes of a legitimate threat on the field last year, but never quite gelled with the Chicago coaching staff.
Even Jay Cutler petitioned for Aromashodu to be played more, but the coaching staff wouldn’t budge.
That’s fine, because the Vikings have him now.
Then there is the underrated Michael Jenkins.
A lot of people thought Jenkins was very ineffective in Atlanta, and they mainly support this notion by mentioning his low stat totals.
But the majority of them never shed light to the fact that Jenkins was used more as a blocking receiver instead of sole passing option.
In other words, his stat lines only tell roughly half the story, and are otherwise misleading.
Jenkins has the size and speed to be a downfield threat or an over-the-middle option depending on what set this team deploys.
The idea is the Vikings will go with Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian on the outside when in double tight-end formation.
In the 3-wide sets, Harvin will move to the slot with Bernard Berrian and either Aromashodu or Jenkins on the outside.
The Titans struggled a bit with inconsistency in coverage last year, which is also an area of interest to keep an eye on.
It’s going to be an exciting first preseason contest, filled with a host of things to keep an eye on, so make sure to not miss a single snap.
Hopefully, we'll see some strong performances from the key areas mentioned this weekend.
