    Jim Souhan: Dream of Vikings rookie took an unexpected detour

    [size=13pt]Jim Souhan: Dream of Vikings rookie took an unexpected detour[/size]

    Cornerback Chad Johnson hasn't lost the drive to be in uniform again on game day.

    By Jim Souhan, Star Tribune

    While Winfield skipped the Vikings' voluntary offseason practice Tuesday, Chad Johnson was working to attain a modicum of Winfield's security, a fraction of his income, and a few repetitions at his position. Johnson made a diving catch Tuesday, stretching to catch a ball near the sideline, but then excelling in practice has become his specialty. Johnson, 21, is a rookie free agent cornerback who hasn't played in a real football game since 2004, back when his world was a simpler place.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    After reading an article like this I find myself really hoping he makes the team some way or another.
    Sounds like a good person and anyone that takes in 3 step children and treats them as there own which I sure he does wins my respect.

    First time I've heard his name mentioned (Chad Johnson) but he sounds like a stand up type of guy and who knows, maybe he will get the big break he's looking for.
    In all reality, he's taking a very long shot at making the team, but hey, it's happened before.
    I can only wish him luck and maybe his dream will come true.


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.
