Blake Bortles won’t visit Vikings before the draft
While the top prospects cross the country visiting teams before the NFL Draft, the visits become symbols which can be interpreted numerous ways.
So the Vikings are either not interested, or very interested in Blake Bortles.
According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings won’t be bringing the Central Florida quarterback in for a visit, and they won’t work him out privately.
Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean anything, if they feel like they know him well enough after talking to him and watching his pro day workout.
But making sure the world knows he won’t be visiting Minneapolis before the Vikings use the eighth overall pick, the Vikings can present either impression with a straight face.
