    Agreed.
    It'd be nice to see them to to get these types of background/where they came from stories on all our rookies.

    Another reason to root for Aundrae Allison. We've got some young talent on this team, and if they can live up to their potential we will win a league championship.


    Go Vikings!

    Very nice story... if he ever screws up with drugs or any stupid stunts in the NFL you know Hozae will kick his ass!

    He's got the potential t be a great player.
    I'd like to see him out there some more.
    It was nice to see #84 in the endzone again.

    It's a great story. Good for him.

    Also, Laugh Out Loud at the father trying to contact him NOW of all times

    Good for his mother and brother though.
