    After working for two decades in the NFL to fulfill his desire to become a head coach, Mike Zimmer has finally reached the real deal. Minnesota Vikings training camp starts Friday, and the season opener is a little more than six weeks away. Despite the popularity of Zimmer's predecessor, Leslie Frazier, the Vikings have exuded the familiar optimism of a team with a fresh start throughout spring practices. Zimmer has inherited a roster containing 10 former first-round picks, seven of whom were drafted in 2012 or later, and the Vikings went 10-6 just two seasons ago.
