Rice, Berrian, Harvin, Shiancoe No-Show Florida Workouts

Well, so much for everybody getting together for a workout with the Vikings' new quarterback.

On the second day of workouts at the IMG Madden Football Academy in Bradenton, Florida, quite a few Vikings' veterans that were said to have been going to the workouts ended up not showing after all.

According to Greg Auman of the St. Petersburg Times, who has been working as a stringer of sorts for the folks in the Twin Cities, thanks to his proximity to the workout location, has said that wide receivers Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, and Bernard Berrian have failed to make it to Bradenton for the workouts, as has tight end Visanthe Shiancoe.

This basically means that the only players that wound up showing for the workouts were quarterbacks Christian Ponder (who organized the workouts) and Joe Webb, tight end Kyle Rudolph, wide receivers Greg Camarillo and Emmanuel Arceneaux, safety Mistral Raymond (who had classes to attend at the University of South Florida on Tuesday, but has shown up for the workouts today), and center Brandon Fusco.

Ponder has said that there will be more workouts, and hopefully "a lot more guys will show up." Based on the turnout that these workouts have received compared to what was expected, that shouldn't be a terribly high hurdle to clear.
