Adrian Peterson might not be happy about Percy Harvin leaving, but he’s sure to be happy to know that two of the team’s top blockers are back.

The Vikings re-signed fullback Jerome Felton Tuesday, according to Dan Wiederer of the Star Tribune.

Felton, 26, reportedly received a three-year $7.5 million deal.

Felton confirmed the signing via Twitter:

"“Thanks to MN VIKINGS!! I’m back and excited about the future!!!! #SkolVikings,” Felton tweeted."

The team re-signed right tackle Phil Loadholt earlier in the day. Following the conclusion of last season, Peterson made it well known that he wanted both Loadholt and Felton back in Minnesota .

Felton was a first-time Pro Bowler last season as the lead blocker for his MVP running back.
