The top two quarterbacks on the Minnesota Vikings' depth chart have spent the spring working at an IMG football academy near Tampa, Fla. The primary coach for Christian Ponder and Joe Webb? Former NFL quarterback Chris Weinke, a Minnesota native who grew up a Vikings fan.
In an appearance on ESPN's "First Take," Weinke said he has been trying to "create an environment to install" the Vikings' offense while the NFL lockout continues. A day after the draft last month, Ponder received part of the new playbook under development by Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave.
