Shiancoe Gets Unique Offer, Refuses

Florida Prospect Coming To Minny

Remember when Spielman went down to Florida’s pro day and everyone wanted to know what the Vikings thought of Tim Tebow? Well, they thought his pass catching tight end was pretty good.

Even Beer Goggles Couldn’t Fix This

Now, coming from Visanthe Shiancoe’s Twitter Page via the Viking Ship, we have the photo evidence to confirm the report.  Thanks? Shiancoe jokes on his twitter page that […]

Shiancoe Looking to Take His Game to the Next Level

When Visanthe Shiancoe dropped a pass Sunday in practice, the miscue was startling. Such was the contrast between the 2009 edition and that of two years ago. In 2007, the Viking tight end was a veritable comedy of errors, seemingly dropping one catchable ball after another. That pattern seemed to continue early last season until […]
