After two straight Pro Bowl and All-Pro seasons, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson has a new coaching staff for the 2022 season. And he’s liking what he’s seeing so far.

Speaking to NFL Network this week, Jefferson said he likes new head coach Kevin O’Connell’s “offensive style.” He especially liked that it’s not a run-first offense but distributes the ball differently.

“Our offensive style is no longer attack first,” Jefferson said. “Just us being able to put different people in different positions and distribute the ball, really. I’m so excited in this attack. We’re just in the OTAs, learning the plays, going through this with our defense, etc.

“We’re all excited. We’re all happy to have (O’Connell). It’s definitely a different vibe, a different connection in the building with him there. We’re just excited to get him started, really. We want to see how this season is really going for us.”

In two short seasons, Justin Jefferson has established himself as one of the NFL’s elite receivers. He has 196 receptions for 3,016 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Those 3,016 yards not only lead the NFL in that span, but are the most in NFL history for a player’s first two seasons.

Last season, Jefferson finished in the top six in every major receiving category. He led the NFL with 14.3 yards per touch.

If this new offense can open up even more opportunities for Jefferson to win the ball back, he could be nearly unstoppable in 2022.
