    Worst Player EVER to wear the Purple and Gold

    There's a thread over at Cold, Hard Football Facts about this, but it's not Vikings' specific.

    Rules are simple: who is the worst ever player to suit up for the Vikings. Should not be some cup o' coffee who never got on the field, but, rather, someone who played and was truly the suck.

    Have at it.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re:Worst Player EVER to wear the Purple and Gold

    The Vikings have been so consistently good in their history, that this might be tougher than we think. I'm really hoping some of the long-time fans will pop in here with some opinions, rather than just making this a beat up on TWill exercise.

    Here are some of my candidates:

    Mike L. Jones - TE - first draft-pick for the Vikings in 1990 (3rd round). 5 catches in 2 seasons before being cut.

    Robert Harris - DT - first draft-pick for the Vikings in 1992 (39th overall). Lasted 3 seasons, had 3 sacks, before being let loose.

    Derrick Alexander - DE - first-round pick in 1995 (#11 overall). Complete bust. 17.5 sacks in 4 years before being dumped, where he lasted one more season with Cleveland. A total waste of a high pick.

    I'd list Dimitrius Underwood next, but he never actually played for the Vikings. Didn't he only make it through one pre-season practice before quitting?

    That's just a couple of the draft picks. There's still guys like Wassawa Serwanga, Spergon Wynn and Nick Davis to discuss.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Steve Dills QB - The Vikes were high on this guy and I could never figure out why.


    Brad Johnson QB - The last year he should never have agreed to play if his arm was that bad.


    Doug Brien PK - 2002 with Vikes for 6 games missed an 2 X-tra points and a field goal in the same game.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Yup. He signed his contract on the first day of training camp, went to afternoon practice, and then walked out the next day.

    He has my vote as the absolute worst because he DID wear the uniform (if only for 2 hours), and he DID cost the Vikings a helluva lot as a first round draft pick that was worse than bust.

    When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?
