As rookies begin camp, Vikings face high expectations

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Three seasons ago, when the Minnesota Vikings stumbled after a 5-0 start and finished just 8-8, one of their many problems was a negligible contribution by their collection of first-year players.

The following summer, school started early for the new students. Coach Mike Zimmer hasn't looked back.

"That was the rookie class that didn't really give us much that year," Zimmer said, reflecting on the 2016 draftees, "so I figured the more that we could help them with these kinds of things, the faster that they can get up to speed, they might be able to help us a little bit."
