In the same summer where it seems the Seattle Seahawks are organizing a reunion of former Minnesota Vikings, it's only appropriate that the preseason home opener sees the current Vikings coming to give the Seahawks their first test at CenturyLink Field.
Starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, No. 1 wide receiver Sidney Rice and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell—arguably Seattle's three most important new additions of the offseason—were all with Minnesota for the better part of the past five years: Jackson and Bevell since 2006, Rice since 2007.
Jackson played only a handful of snaps in his Seahawks debut last week in San Diego, while Rice sat out with a minor shoulder injury. And even though Seattle won the game, the unveiling of Bevell's offense deserves an asterisk considering the team was missing some key personnel. So in essence, the Vikings game will be the first real showing for each of the ex-Vikings.
Those reunions and more are some of the key storylines to watch in Saturday's preseason matchup.
