    Vikings Offord arrested for drunk driving

    Vikings safety Willie Offord was arrested and charged with drunken driving early Tuesday morning, according to a spokesman for the Minnesota State Patrol.

    A state patrol officer stopped Offord at 2:20 a.m. on westbound Interstate Hwy. 394 in Golden Valley. Offord's blood alcohol content was not available Tuesday, but he was charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree drunken driving, which means it was less than .20.

    Offord was booked into the Hennepin County Jail at 3:29 a.m. and released from custody at 5:52 a.m. He was assigned an April 26 appearance at Hennepin County Ridgedale Court.

    The Vikings signed Offord, their special teams captain in 2005, to a two-year contract extension last month. He is rehabilitating a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, suffered in a Week 3 over New Orleans last season, and was limited during a veteran minicamp earlier this month.

    The Vikings believe he will be healthy when training camp begins, and Offord could compete with free-agent acquisition Tank Williams for the starting strong safety job.

    Offord was not available for comment. The Vikings and Offord's agent, David Canter, both declined comment.

    Uniform debut

    The Vikings are expected to reveal their new uniform designs April 27 at the Mall of America, giving them an exclusive 72-hour window to sell the new designs heading into the April 29-30 NFL draft weekend.

    Upwards of 40 advertising billboards have popped up around the Twin Cities this week, advertising the pending announcement. Team officials have described the changes as relatively subtle, but purple pants are expected to be incorporated at some level.

    Well it's sad to see anyone pinched like that, but fact is, thats the gamble you take now adays even if you only drink one or two beers and get behind the wheel.

    Sounds like he wasn't stagering drunk, but still had some sort of buzz going on to be noticed. Maybe K-Rob will talk to him...

    Can't wait to see the new Uni's...
