Mike Zimmer said the Vikings and Jaguars coaching staffs had a good meeting last night. Before practice today, 12 players from each team are going to meet to talk about "respecting each other and doing things the right way." Zimmer said the idea for that was sparked by one of his players yesterday during a meeting with several of his core players that he regularly meets with. The emphasis? Stick to football and keep it on the field. "We really don’t want to end up being on TV like some of these other things that have been going on," Zimmer said. "We just want to get out here and get some work done and try to get each of us better."

The Vikings host Jacksonville for joint practices on Wednesday and Thursday, something Minnesota last did in 2016 with Cincinnati. Mike Zimmer said the focus is on being productive and not letting things escalate on the field like what happened between the Redskins and Jets. "It’s important that our guys know we’re not going to put up with any trash talking, we’re not going to put up with any fighting. We’re not here for that. We’re here to get better. Hopefully our guys will know that and they’ll have the same thing. Coach Marrone and I have talked about it. We’re really all about getting work done. We don’t want to get in any kind of conflicts like they had apparently in Washington. I didn’t see it, but things like that."

Mike Zimmer decided to experiment with Aviante Collins at guard because he wanted to see how the athletic tackle would respond to things occurring at a much quicker pace inside on passing downs. It paid off against Denver when Collins, playing left guard, burst out to block at the second level on a screen pass to Roc Thomas, which the rookie running back turned into an 78-yard touchdown run. Moving between the two positions is important for Collins' growth as a lineman "because on game day he can play almost anywhere," Zimmer said.
