First Training Camp Interview

Brad Childress arrived in Mankato today and so did many of the Vikings players.  After settling in, Childress addressed the media and responded to many questions about camp which essentially starts tomorrow.

“I’m more than content with these two guys competing with each other and throwing JD Booty in the mix,” Childress said. “They’re going to go back and take the same turns that they took all spring. It’ll be a fun training camp from that standpoint.”  Childress made a point of saying that Tarvaris Jackson is very excited for camp to start, and that he was the first player to arrive in Mankato.

Childress did not out right say “no way” when asked about Michael Vick as a potential quarterback, but Childress wasn’t exactly singing praises.  He said, “The guys we’ve got, we’re going to fashion the team around and go forward that way. It’s going to be Sage and Tarvaris, and we’ll see how JD Booty factors in.”

Childress had spoken with Rob Brzezinski prior to the presser, and he was told that they are in the thick of negotiations with Percy Harvin.  He said, “They both take time back and forth. It’s important for him to get in here, especially at his position and with the different things he has to learn. Not to mention getting here and getting in pads.”

There will be plenty of action during camp, so keep checking back for more updates.
