2013 Vikings: Early OTA storylines


With three Organized Team Activities practices in the books, there are a few Vikings storylines developing at Winter Park.

Tim Arcand of the Bleacher Report has a list of nine stories Purple die-hards are no-doubt thinking about as we enter Week 2 of OTAs. Among the most interesting:

- Wide receiver Jerome Simpson sounds like he's ready to compete.

- Cordarrelle Patterson picked No. 81, the number worn by one of his role models.

-How durable is Greg Jennings?

Mike Wobschall at Vikings.com has also compiled a list of Week 1 OTA happenings and interviews. He calls it "Winter Park Rewind" and you can find that right here.

As for the this week, OTAs resume tomorrow and run through Thursday. The early headline right now is that Jared Allen and Jennings are expected to participate, according to NFL.com.

Next week, OTAs wrap up, with a mandatory 3-day minicamp starting on June 20.
