The notion that the defense was ahead of the offense was common in Minnesota as new quarterbacks, offensive coordinators and scheme changes became a routine part of every July and August. But all that is changing in 2020. "It's kind of unfamiliar territory for me," said Vikings safety Harrison Smith, who is part of a defense that lost nine veterans in the offseason.
It didn’t happen last year, and offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said last week he doesn’t consider it a possibility for this season. Reiff said in June 2019 the possibility had been brought up. He said this week he didn’t hear anything about it this offseason but would be receptive if the Vikings ever wanted him to change positions.
College football is in the same situation as education. We live in a litigious society, and college presidents likely couldn’t bear the potential of several lawsuits from players who might contract COVID-19 and suffer complications. So, they shut it down, just like several schools that have closed their doors throughout the country.
