Vikings Happy In Mankato

The Minnesota Vikings have agreed on a three-year contract with Minnesota State University to continue their training camp on the Mankato campus through 2015.

The deal was announced Tuesday. Players report to camp Thursday, which will begin the team’s 48th season training at MSU. Back then, off-site camps were the norm in the NFL. This season, the Vikings are in the minority, one of only 13 teams training away from headquarters. The other 19 practice year-round at their own facilities.

One change for players this time will be their lodging. After living in the twin Gage towers for all but one year previously, the Vikings will be in the newer Sears residence just to the north of where the old dorms once stood. They were torn down this summer.
