There's No Place Like Home for Jim Kleinsasser

Jim Kleinsasser reportedly drew interest from four teams in free agency, but in the end, the long-time Vikings tight end decided to stay in Minnesota, inking a two-year, $6 million contract.  “I love it here. I love the people,” said the North Dakota native, who has spent 10 years in Purple. “My family is close. And I think to stay here, with one team, throughout your career is great.” Kleinsasser’s value as a blocker has been well-documented over the years – in fact, in his prime, he was often referred to as a tackle who played tight end.  And considering the high value Brad Childress places on having a good blocking tight end…well, you weren’t going to find a better one, so keeping him seems like a no-brainer.
