George Stewart: Minnesota Vikings WR whisperer
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have a revamped receiver corps this year. Only three players in the unproven group have worn purple before.
That makes receivers coach George Stewart’s job more important than ever.
In more than two decades of coaching in the NFL, Stewart has worked with some of the best in the game. Along the way, he’s become a receiver whisperer of sorts. He’s respected for his ability to work with strong personalities like Terrell Owens and Percy Harvin to get the best out of them on Sundays.
This year Greg Jennings is his only proven veteran on the roster.
Stewart says he likes the youthful group he is working with in training camp. He says their enthusiasm and energy keep him young.
