    Viking Linemen Have Been Working Out

    Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt and guard Chris DeGeare joined the Fitzgerald workouts on Friday. Loadholt appeared to be in very good shape after training in Oklahoma and then Eden Prairie.
    "Iíve been working pretty hard," he said. "Me and Anthony Herrera worked together for a while. Most of the guys are doing as much as we can to stay in shape. Weíve got a playbook. We can study that as much as we can. But really, we need to get around the coaches and get to work, though."
    Loadholt said he got a copy of the playbook from center John Sullivan, who was able to stop by Winter Park in late April when the lockout was briefly lifted.
    DeGeare, meanwhile, said he weighs about 340 pounds right now. "Last year, they had me at 335 was my game weight," he said. "Itíll probably be somewhere in there. I was comfortable with it. In college, I played a lot bigger than that, but I like 335. You can move, feel great with it, and still bigger a lot of the defense out there."
    DeGeare, who just arrived in the Twin Cities, has been training with someone who is more along the lines of a bodybuilder. "I'm just trying to get bigger, faster,stronger," DeGeare said.
    He did run into a difficult challenge completing six 300-yard shuttles in the heat Friday morning. "Oh yeah [it's tough], especially when youíre expecting three and you run six," he said. "But it was all good. My legs need it. It felt good to get out moving like that."

    You don't see McKinnie's name anywhere in that article.

    Good to hear that at least some of our guys are working out.

    I've defended McKinnie in the past, but I'm having a harder time doing so. He's constantly tweeting, but never about working out, football or to his teammates.
