Minnesota rookie Mekhi Blackmon claims Vikings fans are in for a 'crazy' time as his former USC...
Mekhi Blackmon knows Jordan Addisons game inside out. And he says Minnesota Vikings fans are in for a crazy time as he lines up alongside superstar receiver Justin Jefferson.
Blackmon and Addison were teammates at USC last year - and after the wide receiver headed to Minnesota with the No 23 overall pick of the draft, cornerback Blackmon followed as the last pick in the third round.
After a strong training camp - which began with a highlight-reel catch in week one - Addison will start the season in tandem with Jefferson and KJ Osborn as the Vikings look to take another leap in year two of Kevin OConnells offense.
Hes real crazy route runner. He's gonna be real crazy to pair with JJ. I look forward to seeing him myself, Blackmon told MailSport during a recent visit to England.
I can only imagine how it's going to be with our receiving corps. And then with Kirk in his second year with coach O'Connell - itll be real good.
Both Addison and Blackmon were coveted by Minnesota, with the pair making a pre-draft visit to the teams facility. Blackmon, 24, felt at home right away.
