The annual Blakeslee Stadium night practice has been a tradition for Minnesota Vikings fans looking for a first look at the team during training camp in Mankato, Minnesota.  The 2017 night practice marks the final Mankato night practice as the team will be moving to their new home in Eagan for their 2018 training camp.

The practice was a success as just before the practice started it was announced that the anchor of the defensive line, Linval Joseph was signed to contract extension.  The announcement wrapped up a great week for the Vikings defense as Eversen Griffen and Xavier Rhodes both signed contract extensions, shoring up the core of the defense.

The Vikings will open their preseason game schedule at Buffalo on August 10.
