Dixon Staying in Minnesota

Yes, David Dixon is staying in Minnesota and it has little to do with the Vikings. To be honest, it probably doesn't matter whether or not the Vikings resign the 11-year NFL veteran. I talked to David during his appearance on the local sports/comedy show named The Show To Be Named Later which airs Saturday Nights on the Twin Cities NBC station KARE-11 (for info, see www.TheShowToBe.com). I asked him about possibly leaving Minnesota, his answer was completely unselfish. David talked about his family.

David is a free agent, a man currently without a team. But this isn't the first time he is unsigned by Minnesota. Dixon originally joined the Vikings in 1992 but in 1993, he was available, unsigned, and signed with the Dallas Cowboys to join their practice squad. After being on the Super Bowl Champions team, Dixon returned to Minnesota to stay. That was in 1994 and to be honest, it's quite interesting that this lifetime Viking (what else can you call 11 years with one NFL club?) was actually not drafted by Minnesota.

Big Dave kicks a$$!!! He was our most consistent blocker last year. (With Birk injured, of course.)

One of our unsung stars who just gets on with his job with no fuss or fanfare. He's a great example to the younger player who deserves full recognition for what he does
