A lot of you have asked either in email to me or in the comments section below news articles and blogs about Vikings players participating in any player-organized workouts. Because I can’t interact with players during the work stoppage, I don’t have an idea of whether or not these workouts are happening with respect to Vikings players.
But according to St. Paul Press writer Jeremy Fowler, who covers the Vikings beat, QB Christian Ponder is going to get together with WRs Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice for workouts in Florida. It sounds like Ponder and Harvin had planned to get together and when Rice caught wind of that, he wanted to participate as well. That’s a good sign, right?
To be honest, I’m not sure there’s much value in large groups of players – offense and defense – getting together for organized workouts during a time of work stoppage. But, I can see the value of QBs and WRs/TEs getting together, especially if those players have never been on the field together.
This is a sensative topic for us to touch because of the work stoppage, so we’ll stop at that for now. But I thought you’d at least be interested in the update.
