About a year ago, I wrote about five former Minnesota Vikings you may not have remembered donned the purple. Here’s a list of five more names you may have forgotten.
Every now and then, the Minnesota Vikings will bring in a fairly big-name player in free agency. Sometimes, these players are big names because of their lofty draft status, and not because of their play on the field. While it is exciting for the Vikings and their fans when these high profile names are brought in, they don’t always pan out.
When these bigger named players flame out, their time with the Vikings slowly begins to fade away like the polaroids in Back to the Future. While their time with the team may get pushed to the back of our memories, it’s always fun to go back and look at their time with the Vikings and remember the hope and expectations many of us had for these players.
This is the second part to an article I published a year ago, and who knows, in the future, it could become a trilogy. Anyway, here are five former Minnesota Vikings you may have forgotten wore our beloved shade of purple.
