Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday re-signed offensive right tackle Phil Loadholt and fullback Jerome Felton, two of the biggest in-house goals of this offseason.

Loadholt was a key part this past season of an offensive line that helped running back Adrian Peterson rush for 2,097 yards, just nine yards shy of breaking the all-time single-season record of 2,105.

Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com reports that the deal is for multiple years, with the agreement coming just minutes before the opening of NFL free agency on Tuesday afternoon.

Felton, meanwhile, has signed a three-year deal worth $7.5 million, that according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

The bulky fullback was the lead blocker for Peterson in the 2012 season, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl as a representative for the NFC.
