MANKATO, Minn. -- Here are five observations on the Minnesota Vikings, based on camp practices of Aug. 6:

1.
The most amazing story in camp is wide receiver Koren Robinson. A year ago at this time, Robinson was in an alcohol rehab center in South Carolina. Now, he's the Vikings' No. 1 receiver after making a comeback that earned him a trip to the Pro Bowl as a returner.

"Everything is good in my life right now," Robinson said. "Actually, a year ago, I thought my career was over. I thought I burned all my bridges and I thought I was done."
