    Vikings: Top picks unsigned, but talks heat up

    The Vikings' contract negotiations with the top of their draft class intensified on Monday, but it seemed unlikely that first-round pick Adrian Peterson would be among the players reporting to training camp Wednesday at Minnesota State Mankato....

    Nothing to be worried about, yet.
    It is perfectly normal for these guys not to sign so soon.
    Judging by the excitement the AP has for this upcoming season, he will sign soon and be in camp preparing for a great year.

    If he does not and holds out...well...then he will be Mossified!

    Isn't it interesting to note that WILLIAMS signed and got his butt into camp and has been very successful.
    The other two holdouts have had varying degrees of success.

    Since none of the top 10 picks have signed yet, I won't be in a panick.
    I wish I could go to training camp this year.

    Preach on brother.
    I even logged on to PPO at home last night just to see what I could see.

    Sounds like Rice & Mcauley will be there A.P. is a bit more of a question mark. I just hope he signs quicker than Erasmus did.

    * The new EA Sports college football video game has a promo going that highlights the Texas Longhorns. Look closely and you’ll see that, on every play, they're bottling up Adrian Peterson and slamming him to the turf.
    Kind of like Leinart dreaming about pulling a Vince Young in the Rose Bowl.
    Ask Robison how well they bottled up this dude:

    2004
    32 carries for 225 yards
    2005 3 carries, 10 yds (ankle injury coming into game)
    2006
    25 rushes for 109, 1 TD, 1 REC, 10 yards... 4 kick returns, 94 yards
    (213 total yds)

    i believe rice will sign before training camp along the mccauly. ap will wait until the picks around him get there deals done. so i dont see him in camp right away.
