    We got a linebacker! -LEBER- Vermillion native - article

    Vermillion native excited to be part of new start with Vikings




    VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) -- A Vermillion native who recently signed with the Minnesota Vikings said he's happy to be back in the Midwest.

    When Ben Leber signed with the San Diego Chargers in 2002 fresh out of Kansas State, he came to a team with a new and young coaching staff. "It was exciting to be around," he said.

    The linebacker sees a similar situation in Minnesota, as the Vikings prepare for their first season under head coach Brad Childress. Everybody is relatively new to the team with some of their roles and positions, he said.
    "I would have gone to any team, regardless of location, if they presented the best package," Leber said. "Minnesota, with the new coaching staff, the enthusiasm and the energy, just beat out everybody else, hands down."
    "We've taken a very conservative approach on my recovery because it's something I've battled with for almost two years now. They definitely want to make sure the bone does heal and everything is up to speed," he said. "I'm not quite at 100 percent, but definitely I would say we're 90 to 95 percent there."
    This guy has his best football ahead of him! We just need to add one more linebacker from the draft, a good one.

    yeah, i know man, just think if we had Lavar for a linebacker on there. He'd be awesome! But we won't sign him

    and culpepper was like a 98 overall this year, but then he stunk it up real bad..pretty bad way to scout players
