For the Minnesota Vikings, the 2017 season was one of the most enjoyable five months of football that the franchise has put together in recent memory.

Obviously, though, the 2017 campaign will be forever remembered as the Vikings season that featured the incredible "Minneapolis Miracle" play. Despite the disappointment that took place in the following matchup, Minnesota fans will never forget the game-winning touchdown pass that Case Keenum threw to Stefon Diggs to beat the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the 2017 playoffs.

Speaking of Keenum, it was recently revealed that the veteran quarterback will be teaming up with some of his former Vikings teammates in a competition against other NFL players.

Keenum, Adam Thielen, and Eric Kendricks are all members of Minnesota's 2017 roster who have since moved on from the team. However, these three former Vikings players, along with current Minnesota safety Harrison Smith, will apparently be teaming up during a golf tournament put together by the NFLPA.

Beginning on Thursday in Riviera Maya, Mexico, and ending on Saturday, the NFLPA is holding its second annual golf tournament. On Wednesday, they revealed that Keenum, Thielen, Kendricks, and Smith are one of the 16 teams of four players that will be taking part in the event.

Some other current and former Vikings players are also participating in this year's NFLPA golf tournament, including Jordan Hicks, Harrison Phillips, Trevor Siemian, and Josh Dobbs.

Last year, a team led by current Buffalo Bills pass rusher Von Miller was able to emerge as the winner of the tournament. Miller is back this year to see if he can lead his four-player team to another victory.

But he'll have some tough competition from the team of former Vikings. During the last handful of years, Thielen has developed into one of the top non-PGA golfers in the world, and Smith has been consistently improving at the sport after playing it more frequently during the last few offseasons.

While Smith will be returning to the Vikings facilities later this year to prepare for the 2024 season, Keenum, Thielen, and Kendricks will all be suiting up for different teams.

Kendricks just recently reunited with former Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer and signed a deal to play for the Dallas Cowboys next season, Keenum is in his second year with the Houston Texans as the top backup behind C.J. Stroud, and Thielen is back with the Carolina Panthers for another season after parting with Minnesota last year.

If everything goes well, perhaps they'll be able to rediscover some of their 2017 magic and pull off a "miracle" in this year's NFLPA golf tournament.
