They say safety should always come first. But judging by Vikings Head Coach
“We need to keep evaluating them,” Zimmer said of his safeties. “Some of them, there wasn’t a lot of action in some of the plays (in Saturday’s game) for them and that’s the one problem with safeties, sometimes you don’t get a lot of action. We have got to continue to evaluate them again this week and probably the fourth preseason game, too.”
“We are going to keep dividing the reps,” Zimmer explained, “try and rotate guys in there and figure out what’s the best way to go.”
The good news is the Vikings have plenty of capable bodies on the roster to fill a starting position and support that position with depth. Which players will fill which roles, though, is a question that remains to be answered. Zimmer doesn’t want to force anything, but he also knows the sooner this question is answered, the better.
“As soon as we can,” Zimmer said when asked when he’d like this situation figured out. “As soon as I’m sure with what we’re doing.”
