Vikings rookies Christian Ponder and Kyle Rudolph have worked out together since they were drafted in Florida and now in Minnesota as part of Larry Fitzgerald's organized offseason workouts.  Ponder was throwing passes to Viking receiver Jaymar Johnson and Rudolph this season and Ponder has been living with Rudolph in his guest room while he looks for a place in live in Minnesota.

Quarterback Christian Ponder was taken with the 12 overall pick in the April NFL draft while tight end Kyle Rudolph was taken in the 2nd round by the Vikings in April.  Both Ponder and Rudolph are hopeful that the NFL lockout ends this week.
