Justin Jefferson is certainly coming into his own. He’s going into his third season with the Minnesota Vikings and wants to contribute in a bigger way with the team. He was in South Florida when the Vikings named Kevin O’Connell as the new head coach.

“It feels great, honestly just for him to come in and be a laid-back coach ready to change the whole program and get us back on that winning stage,” Justin Jefferson said. “We’re all excited. We’ve seen so many new faces in here, so many new coaches. We have so much potential on this team. We’re all ready to get this thing started back up.”

Jefferson admitted that he liked what Rams wideout Cooper Kupp did last season and sees things he’d like to implement into the Vikings game plan regarding his role at wide receiver.

“Seeing what Cooper Kupp did last year and getting close to the record, just him being open so many times is a lot of things I watched that I’m excited about this year,” said Jefferson.
