Vikings sign former pro wrestler Lesner
By BOB SANSEVERE

Pioneer Press

Vikings coach Mike Tice said the team will sign former NCAA champion and pro wrestler Brock Lesnar to a contract and bring him to training camp, which begins Friday in Mankato, Minn.

Tice made the decision after putting Lesnar through strenuous 45-minute workout this morning. Tice said Lesnar, who hasn't played football since high school, would play the same defensive tackle position as veteran Chris Hovan.

"I'm excited. All I ask for is the opportunity, and he's given me that," said Lesnar, 6-foot-3, 286 pounds.

Tice said Lesnar will sign a contract after taking a physical later today.

I guess fake tackling will catapult any team to the super bowl.

do you think they will allow him to pile drive qb's?

i wonder how effective the claw is when your opponent is wearing a helmet.

i guess he went by the moniker, The Next Big Thing as a wrestler.

he was a pro wrestler that gave up around 7 million per year to try his hand at football. he will more than likely end up on the pratice squad.

he was almost unstopable as a college wrestler. that might help him in playing on the d-line.

sorry, i thought everyone had heard about him.

What a loser. A loser as a wrestler and a loser on a loser team.

Sorry, I'm not into wrestling. I know who The Rock is because of his movies but that's about all I know of the current crop.
