Right attitude

Early this morning, 45 minutes before the official start of practice, a lone player was on the practice field at Minnesota State University, Mankato.

That player was Chad Greenway, the Vikings first-round pick.

Asked if he was trying to make an impression, Greenway said, "That's what I try to do every day, I guess.

"You want to get out here and you want to be in the right place when practice starts," he said. "It's maybe the first day jitters a little bit too. No matter what you do, it's the first day and you are going to be a little bit nervous and a little bit excited. That's definitely what I was. You are supposed to be the first one out here and the last one off, right?"

Is this guy for real? He tells his agent to make sure to get him to camp on time, AND he's the first player on the field for practice and the last one to leave.

Maybe this is the honeymoon stage.
