The Minnesota Vikings' 2012 Training Camp will open on Thursday, July 26.
With the beginning of football season right around the corner, the Minnesota Vikings released their much-anticipated 2012 Verizon Vikings Training Camp schedule on Thursday afternoon.
Set to begin on Thursday, July 26 and run until Wednesday, August 15, the Vikings will work their way into a schedule of two-a-days throughout the week with morning walk-throughs from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and full pad practices in the afternoon hours from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.
Morning autograph sessions will begin on Monday, July 30 with the tight end position, followed up by offensive lineman, linebackers, wide receivers, and defensive ends on each day respectively throughout the week. After Family Football Day on Saturday, August 4, autographs will resume with quarterbacks the following Monday.
Fans hoping to land an autograph from star tailback Adrian Peterson will have to get in line with the masses on August 8th for a jam-packed running back signing session. As always, those who miss out on certain players or aren't able to attend any of the earlier practices can join in the festivities on August 14th's Fan Appreciation Day, which is the second-to-last day before camp concludes.
