Derrick Coleman had to overcome a lot to make his NFL dream come true. Including being let go by the Vikings.
It’s cool to see that Coleman has caught on in Seattle and is now going to be a part of their playoff run. He’s an easy guy to root for. Unlike certain other former Vikings who shall remain nameless.
This new Duracell ad tells Coleman’s story pretty powerfully. And it will probably help sell some batteries. Incidentally.
