I don’t think this is the big personnel move Viking fans had in mind to help kickstart what has so far been a dismal season. Then again who knows? Maybe adding Ryan D’Imperio to the mix is just what this team needs to get the running game out of stall mode.
I hear crickets.
Okay so D’Imperio probably isn’t the magic elixir for the Vikings offense. There was a reason they didn’t keep him coming out of the preseason after all. It was because he wasn’t a very good blocker or receiver.
To make room for D’Imperio the Vikings waived Allen Reisner. Again.
It’s possible this move is just a precursor to another bigger and more impressive move. Or it’s possible the coaching staff has entered “throw crap against the wall and see what sticks” mode. D’Imperio lead blocking for Adrian Peterson? Somehow I doubt that’s going to help.
