It’s checking out all the work Pat has been reporting on that the Texans have been working on all offseason. WE. CAN’T. WAIT!

Wobby is here to fill us Texan-philes in on what’s been happening this off-season up in Mankato, Minnesota, home of the Minnesota Vikings training camp. We’ll hit the high points: the rookies, Adrian Peterson, the turnover battle, and what the expectations are for the 2013 season in the NFC North and throughout the NFC Conference for the Minnesota Vikings.
How has Cordarrelle Patterson looked early on?
