    Vikings | Team invites Haddix for a tryout in May
    Tue, 3 Apr 2007 18:09:21 -0700

    Pete Iorizzo, of the Albany Times-Union, reports the Minnesota Vikings have invited Siena basketball player Michael Haddix for a tryout to be held the first week of May. Haddix is a former center on the Siena men's baseketball team. The Vikings have told Haddix they want to see him lift weights, run pass patterns and catch a few passes. If the workout goes well, the team might ask him to stay for a more extended workout. The team told Haddis they expect to work out three or four college basketball players to see if they can play tight end.

    i'm all for converting those right tall basketball players to recievers.
    should go after some of the 7'0"+ guys, all theyd have to do is just stand there and the qb just has to throw it high

    if only it was that easy...

    Has anybody yet had the slightest success in imitating the Charger's conversion of Antonio Gates?

    He was just drafted one or two years ago, wasn't he?
    Pardon my ignorance if I'm way off.
    How many have actually tried since then?

    Gates was signed in 2003.

    How many hits could a 7'0 tall basketball player take before he broke in half?

    Just throw it up high?

    The guy would be killed in the first quarter.

    It might work if his knees were made of steel.

    Hopefully this experiment works out better than lesnars. Well unless he Suplexes someone as well.
