The Jon Cooper Saga Continues


The Jon Cooper Saga has a happy ending.

As you know, undrafted free agent Cooper was a surprise addition to the 53-man roster after the cutdown deadline on Saturday.  Then, triumph turned to, um, tragedy for Mr. Cooper as he was released and replaced on the roster by some dude with a long name that reminds one both of a tiny European principality and the man who won an Oscar for his performance in Norman Jewison‘s In the Heat of the Night.

Now the story has taken another, happier twist:  Cooper has been re-signed to the Vikings practice squad.  Unfortunately, that meant someone else had to go, and that someone was Drew Radovich.

So, if you’re a Jon Cooper fan, you are blissful.  And if you’re a Drew Radovich fan, you are angry as hell.

And if you’re the Vikings equipment manager, you are irritated that you now have to figure out how to fit Lichtensteiger on the back of the uniform.  Hint:  consult pictures of Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
