The Minnesota Vikings are trying something new this year.
The team is wearing a new wool coat for the first time.
The Minnesota Vikings wear a wool coat this season for the second time in three seasons.
The first was last season, when they wore wool coats.
The Vikings were introduced to the wool coat trend by their first-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Christian Ponder.
Ponder wore the wool in college.
That’s where the wool came from.
“When you get older and your body is a little more wooly, you have to be a little bit more careful with the way you dress, but it’s not a bad thing to wear it,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.
“I think it’s just something that’s something you have and can use.”
The team has worn wool jackets before, but this year they’re wearing the wool for the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
The first-year Vikings wore the new wool jacket at the beginning of training camp in May.
The team will wear the new coat at halftime of their game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday against the New York Jets.
This is not the first season the Vikings have worn wool coats in the off-season.
They wore them during the 2014 season, but they did not have any wool coats for the preseason.
