    [size=12pt]Onatolu's special at beating odds[/size]

    Kenny Onatolu called his identical twin brother, Taiwo, immediately after Kenny signed a free agent contract with the Vikings last December.

    Kenny was 26 at the time, had spent two years in the Canadian Football League and was undersized (6-2, 225 pounds) by NFL linebacker standards. The long-shot label applied, but he said he could make something of his first NFL opportunity.

    "He said his first goal is to make the team," Taiwo recalled. "Then he said he wanted to be the best special teams player on the team."

    Kenny accomplished the first and is pushing hard to achieve the second. Signed primarily to bolster the special-teams units, Onatolu leads the Vikings with 15 special-teams tackles halfway through the season.

    Vikes definitely added the right pieces to what was a HORRIBLE special teams for several years.

    Kenny and Heath are a force to be for many years to come

    Loving the other pieces we added this offseason too

    Best thing we could have done was to get rid of Ferrero as well
