The other day I wrote a post asking why players are criticized for skipping “voluntary” workouts. so you can imagine my disgust upon reading the following…
The Vikings excused running back Adrian Peterson and quarterback Tavaris Jackson from Wednesday’s voluntary practice for personal reasons. Which is funny, because the whole “optional” thing sounds weird if you need the coaches staff permission in order to skip it.
The good folks in management also excused linebacker Ben Leber, so he could witness the birth of his first child .
You are now excused from reading this post.
