NFL teams will make their final roster cuts Saturday as they wrap up training camp and look toward the regular season.

MPR News producer Jeffrey Bissoy and host John Wanamaker discussed some of the stories coming out of the Minnesota Vikings' training camp, including:

  • How the revamped offensive line may help boost quarterback Kirk Cousins

  • Running back Dalvin Cook's strong showing in the preseason

  • Who the Vikings will go with at wide receiver behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs

  • Who Minnesota will choose as their No. 2 running back, as well as their second-string quarterback — and the ongoing debate on whether to make final roster choices based on experience or potential.
