Jake Locker isn’t the only rookie quarterback hoping to get his teammates together for some workouts.
Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports No. 13 overall pick Christian Ponder setting up workouts in Florida this week with receivers Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin.
Apparently, Rice heard about Harvin and Ponder getting together, so he “direct messaged” Ponder on Twitter. Very 2011.
Ponder has the Vikings playbook and could share it with Harvin and Rice while together. Rice could leave the team as an unrestricted free agent, but he’s almost as likely to re-sign or get stuck there as a restricted free agent if we return to the 2010 league rules.
