In a move to keep the offensive line that lead the way for Adrian Peterson's epic 2,097 yards rushing last season intact, the Minnesota Vikings have resigned right tackle to a multi-year deal rumored to be worth over $5 million per year.
With the Vikings trading Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks yesterday, along with releasing longtime corner back Antoine Winfield earlier today, this is a good signing and one general manager Rick Spielman said was a priority earlier this off-season.
While the Vikings do have an abundance of draft picks in the upcoming NFL draft, it could prove to pay dividends resigning a key player on one of the leagues best NFL lines.
Along with Loadholt, the Minnesota Vikings also agreed earlier toady to a 1 year deal with wide receiver Jerome Simpson. Terms of each contract have not been officially announced.
