‘Light bulb’ still hasn’t turned on for two former top Vikings selections

So far in their young careers, former first-round draft pick Lewis Cine and second-rounder Andrew Booth Jr. have left plenty to be desired. Cine, who suffered a major injury during his rookie season, has played in just 10 career games with one total tackle. Booth, who did play quite a bit last season, hasn’t stacked up real well on the field even with playing time.

The Star Tribune’s Andrew Kramer spoke on his latest podcast about a feeling that won’t make Vikings fans feel much better. He’s been told by people behind the scenes that the “light bulb” still hasn’t turned on for either of the two players.

“The phrase that I’ve heard behind the scenes is the light bulb not going on with [Cine and Booth] specifically,” said Kramer on “Access Vikings.” “So how do you interpret that when you’re not sitting in the room next to them as they’re studying these things? … So yeah, the light bulb is just not going on, and it didn’t go on last year.”

There have been plenty of opinions regarding the unlikely chances that at least Cine, if not Booth as well, won’t be on the 2024 53-man roster.
