Former Vikings Jermaine Wiggins and Brooks Bollinger were among the 96 players selected in Thursday night’s inaugural UFL draft. Both were taken by the Orlando team, which will be led by former Saints and Rams head coach Jim Haslett. One-time Vikings coach Dennis Green is set to lead the San Francisco franchise when the four-team league begins play some time later this year.
A guarantee: if Brooks Bollinger plays well in the UFL, more than one idiot will scream that the Vikings should never have let him go. “Brett Favre? Yeah, he’s okay, but that Bollinger kid…I would’ve liked to see the Vikes give him more of a shot.” And there are people who still think the earth is flat too.
