Adrian Peterson to lose $250K by skipping workouts

Minnesota Vikings: Will Teddy Bridgewater Defy History?

Buy Vikings OT Phil Loadholt’s Minnesota Townhouse (w/ Pond View!) — Just $415,000

  Are you in the market for a fairly priced home from an under-the-radar NFL player? Then look no further than the townhouse of Minnesota Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt.
