Minnesota Vikings fans hope to see more of Audie Cole in 2014

Why didn’t anyone claim Audie Cole a few weeks ago when he was cut?

I was telling everyone that Audie Cole would be a huge steal if someone claimed him on the waivers. Well he went unclaimed and thankfully for the Vikings he did, because he was a main reason they were able to tie the Packers. Audie Cole had a huge 3rd down stop at the goal line […]
