    The Vikings sign Ross Kolodziej

    The Minnesota Vikings have announced the signing of 5th-year DT Ross Kolodziej. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Kolodziej was with the Arizona Cardinals for the past two seasons (2004-05) and played in 29 games during that span, including a career-high 16 games with a career-high 14 starts in 2005. He also posted career-bests in '05 in tackles (39), sacks (3.0), passes defensed (4), and QB hurries (4).

    Kolodziej entered the NFL in 2001 as a 7th-round draft choice (230th overall) of the New York Giants. He played in 9 games as a rookie in '01 and spent time with the Giants in 2002. Kolodziej also was with the San Francisco 49ers for parts of the 2002 and 2003 seasons.

    Kolodziej started 45 games at the University of Wisconsin, 5th-most in school history, and finished his career with 170 tackles and 9.0 sacks. He played for the Badgers when Vikings' head coach Brad Childress and assistant offensive line coach Jim Hueber were on Wisconsin's staff.

    Year............... GP/GS Solo Asst. Total Sacks INT PBU TFL QBH FF/FR
    2001 (NYG).... 9/1 3 1 4 0.0 0 0 -- 0 0/0
    2004 (Ari.)...... 13/4 3 2 5 1.0 0 0 -- 3 0/0
    2005 (Ari.)...... 16/14 16 23 39 3.0 0 4 -- 4 2/2
    TOTAL........... 38/19 22 26 48 4.0 0 4 -- 7 2/2

    Hopefully he and Dequincy Scott and him can help our defensive passing rushing game especially on the key third downs. I know he hasn't proved himself even on the worst team in the NFL the Arizona Cardinals but maybe he has something to prove. I hope he can add a new attack in our defense as a pass rusher since our team according to ESPN is the 17th best in the NFL for defensive line.

    Old news!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I kinda figured this was old news, as we signed him last week, and new signings barely get to be 5 minutes old before somebody posts it on here..

    I am sure Ultra will be around soon with the "How To Post Link".. :grin:
