Jaguars to hold joint preseason practices with the Vikings

The Jacksonville Jaguars will participate in two joint practices with the Minnesota Vikings during the 2018 preseason, the team announced Thursday.

Both teams were the runners-up in their respective conferences last season, with the Vikings losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game, and the Jaguars losing to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

The two teams look to make the next step in their journeys down the road with an early one together on August 15-16 in Eagan, Minn.

There will be no access to training camp without a reserved ticket.

It will be Jacksonville's third set of joint practices since coach Doug Marrone took over in 2017. It marks the first time the Vikings have hosted another National Football League team at training camp since 2007 when the Vikings welcomed the Kansas City Chiefs to Mankato.

Having these two teams work together in joint practices at the brand new Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center will be interesting and should help both teams hone their skills with a little more competition and challenge during the preseason.

Training camp opens up July 24 for rookies with the veterans arriving on July 27.
