Continued: Hartman: Vikings' Kalil now knows what to expect

He was asked this week about his biggest challenge coming into training camp, without having participated in the offseason program.

“Probably right now just trying to remember all the names I keep getting thrown out at me,” Bishop said. “I think just getting back acclimated with football, the schedule, the playbook and learning how things are operated around here. I think that will be the toughest challenge, but once I get past that, I’ll be fine.”

SID’s JOTTINGS

• Now that Bill Bayno has left the Timberwolves coaching staff to take a position in Toronto, David Adelman, the son of head coach Rick and currently leading the Timberwolves’ summer league squad, will be promoted to assistant coach. That’s another good sign Adelman will return as coach.

• At Vikings practice Friday, Leslie Frazier was asked what was the difference between Adrian Peterson at the first practice this year and last year: “I was thinking about that as we went through our walk-through and there he is participating, whereas a year ago he wasn’t involved in those things. We had him working on the side with our trainers.”

• Vikings kicker Blair Walsh was asked if he will feel a lot of pressure after the great rookie season he had last year? “No. You kind of wipe clean what you did last year, you reflect in the offseason and you start new.”

• Drew Wolitarsky came to Minnesota from Canyon County High School in Santa Clarita, Calif., with a great reputation as a receiver and according to Gophers football coach Jerry Kill, the team’s quarterbacks see real good things in him. “They’ve been working with the kid, throwing to him, and they said everything everybody said about him is true,” Kill said. “He’s a big kid [6-3, 208 pounds] … coming out of California with the most catches in the history of [California] high school football. I think our kids are really, really excited about him.”

• Gophers basketball coach Rick Pitino talking about forward Mo Walker: “Walker has lost almost 45 pounds and you know a lot of it has been on him. Now what we have to do is put some strength on him because he’s not really explosive. We have the best strength coach in the country in Shaun Brown [newly hired from USC], who is the ultimate professional."

  • Even though Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil, right, faced a steep learning curve a year ago during his rookie season, he was named to the Pro Bowl and the All-Rookie team.
