The Vikings are now in danger of exceeding the league maximum of "Burton's" allowed on a team's roster (2) by bringing rookie WR Stephen Burton up from the practice squad. Thus all but ensuring that we will not be able to bring in TE Dante Burton for a tryout even if we wanted to.

Joining fellow Burton rookie, Brandon on the active roster.

36 Burton, Brandon CB 5-11 190 22 0 Utah
86 Burton, Stephen WR 6-1 221 21 0 West Texas A&M

Now they just need a name...

The Burton Twins...
The Burton Brothers...
The Burton Boys...

got it
The Burton Wall...

If they were a band we could call them "The Who?"

I like it, that just might be it.

I can see it now, Ragnar rides out on the motorcycle, the fog rolls out of the tunnel, and "Who are you" starts playing to the screams of hundreds in the crowd!

Reminds me of the good ol' mid-2000s

Moe Williams
Brian Williams
Kevin William
Pat Williams
Troy Williams(on)

If only we had Madieu Williams back then, we'd be set!

A "Bunch" is connotative of more than two. Probably wouldn't work in this situation, but I like the idea.

If it wasn't already taken, we could call them "B-Twice."

I am thinking about potential endorsement deals or gameday promotional tie-ins with Burton Snowboards...

Maybe "Team Burton"

oops already taken Team | Burton Snowboards (http://www.burton.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Burton_US-Site/default/Team-Riders)
