Minnesota Vikings training camp commences on Sunday as the franchise’s first-year players report to Eagan. Everyone else will arrive on Tuesday.

A honeymoon period is still intact after the Vikings ownership welcomed a new general manager, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, and head coach, Kevin O’Connell, into the fold seven months ago. It’s been a spring and summer of positivity for Minnesota aside from a few eyebrow-raises after Kirk Cousins was extended and trades by Adofo-Mensah with the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.

Ninety players will attend training camp, while 53 will stick around for the regular season.

This is the Vikings current roster.
