Jon Cooper, We Hardly Knew Ye!

It must have been a bitter-sweet day for former Oklahoma Sooner Jon Cooper. Not long after receiving the good news that he had made the 53 man roster for the Minnesota Vikings he received word that he had been released in order to make room for G/C Kory Lichtensteiger.

Lichtensteiger was a fourth-round pick of the Denver Broncos in the 2008 draft. He played his college ball at Bowling Green. According to, Lichtensteiger played both guard and center for the Atlanta Falcons. While at Bowling Green, he was named to the All-MAC and Academic All-MAC teams as a senior. He was also a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, which is given to the best center in college football, and a semi-finalist for the Draddy Trophy, which is considered by many to be the “Academic Heisman.”
