Viking head coach Leslie Frazier has given defensive back and former Gopher Marcus Sherels the first chance to return punts this season.  He won the job over Jaymar Johnson and Greg Camarillo.  Camarillo may also get opportunities to return punts.

Leslie Frazier hasn't decided who will return kicks yet.  The Vikings begin the regular season at San Diego Sunday at 3:15, pregame on WJON at 2:00.  Minnesota is a 9-point underdog.
