MANKATO, Minn. -- Watch enough of the Minnesota Vikings practicing and often you'll hear safety Jamarca Sanford before you see him.
Sanford likes to talk. Just ask him and he'll tell you.
He's loud and doesn't apologize for being boisterous. Sanford doesn't want to be known as just a big talker though. He knows he has to be able to back up his talk with his play.
"I'm a big smack talker, but you've got to lead by example also," Sanford said. "Talking smack, you've got to be able to back it up. So in the offseason that's why I work as hard as I do and put the work I put into it because I know the type of player that I am and I like to talk smack. You can't be talking smack when you're out there and you're the weakest link on defense. So, you've got to be able to back it up. That's what I work as hard as I do."
Sanford has reason to be a little louder this training camp. Sanford comes into his fifth season...
