Vikings agree to terms with Loadholt
Loadholt was one of 10 Vikings that were scheduled to be unrestricted free agents. The Vikings agreed to deals with Loadholt, WR Jerome Simpson and C Joe Berger before the start of free agency and released CB Antoine Winfield. Simpson and Berger each re-signed for one year.
"As we headed into this, Phil Loadholt was definitely our top priority and we're very, very excited that Phil Loadholt will be here," Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said.
Loadholt started all 16 games for the Vikings at right tackle and has started all 63 games he has played in his Vikings career.
The Vikings are also working on signing other of their own free agents, including LB Erin Henderson.
