Adrian Peterson stated in early January that he plans to push GM Rick Spielman to re-sign free agent RT Phil Loadholt.
It's quite the endorsement for 27-year-old Loadholt, a massive 6-foot-8, 343-pound mauler. "I'll probably talk to 'em, just to get that guy in," Peterson said. "He's just been improving each year. I'm going to keep my arms around him this offseason as well, just to make sure he's staying on top of this game." Loadholt was Pro Football Focus' No. 2 run-blocking right tackle in 2012.
