    Kassulke's career ended when he was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident before the Vikings' training camp in 1973.
    I still remember when that happened. I was still in high school.

    That was a very sad day as well.

    I remember it so well when he had that cycle accident. R.I.P. Karl.

    Karl was one of the "greats" although he never gained that much recognition. His laughter will be missed.
