MINNEAPOLIS — Former Iowa star T.J. Hockenson likes the potential of the Minnesota Vikings offense. The Vikings wrapped up mini-camp last week. Hockenson had 60 catches, including three touchdowns after being acquired from the Lions midway through last season.

As he prepares for his fifth season in the NFL, Hockenson has 246 career receptions and 18 touchdowns.

With quarterback Kirk Cousins and receiver Justin Jefferson returning the Vikings have high hopes for next season.

Minnesota last season finished 13-4 and won the NFC North.
