The Vikings’ OTAs started up on May 24 and there are plenty of storylines to come from them so far.

There have been some interesting photos taken of Kellen Mond, Kirk Cousins and others. Minnesota’s quarterback situation will certainly be something to watch in the coming years. Will Mond develop into the Vikings’ quarterback of the future? Or will the team stay with Cousins for the long term?

There have also been some noticeable absences from OTAs thus far. There are two Vikings players who have missed three OTAs this week, according to Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune. Here they are:

Gladney faces a charge of felony assault and his playing status for 2021 remains undetermined.

Hunter has remained unhappy with his current contract, per The Athletic's Chad Graff. ESPN’s Courtney Cronin reported that people shouldn’t expect Hunter to be present in the next couple of weeks.
