Mattison had a productive rookie year, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, and had 19 runs that resulted in first downs. He also added 10 catches for 82 yards in 13 regular season games. He was the Vikings’ 3rd round pick in 2019 out of Boise St.

Mattison and many other Vikings report to training camp on Tuesday. But they won’t hit the field for many days. First, players will have to test negative on two COVID-19 tests.
