These guys are icons with the purple and gold. Reichow has spent 50 yrs in the NFL, talk about experience. I still remember Gilliam's awesome catches. Good to see they'll be around for a little while longer.

The Pioneer Press reports the Minnesota Vikings will not retain scout Jerry Reichow on a full-time basis. He has spent 50 years in the NFL as a player and executive (45 with the Vikings). Reichow, who spent this year as a regional scout and whose contract expires Wednesday, May 31, said Saturday, May 27, that it was mostly his decision not to return in his current status. Reichow hopes he can remain with the organization in a part-time capacity.
