Don’t give up on Gordon just quite yet

Don’t give up on Gordon just quite yet Ok, the NFL upheld Josh Gordon’s one-year suspension for violating the substance abuse policy. This isn’t terribly surprising news – and it doesn’t mean you should necessarily give up on his 2014 season just quite yet. Remember back in 2008 when the league tried to suspend Pat and Kevin Williams for taking a banned diuretic. They took...

Do The Minnesota Vikings Hate Old People?

Former Minnesota Vikings great defensive tackle, Kevin Williams, made some radio rounds this week when he appeared on Sirius CM’s NFL Channel Tuesday. The former stalwart in the middle of the Vikings defense has yet to find a new home for himself after the new Mike Zimmer-led coaching staff let him go heading into the 2014 season. In doing so, they felt compelled to free up their...

Linval Jospeh Finds Inspiration in Fat Pat Williams

Linval Jospeh, the Minnesota Vikings newest defensive tackle, is a big man. He’s listed as being 6’4″, 328 pounds, and that’s probably a lie. Do defensive tackles lie about their weight like girls do? If so, he’s got to AT LEAST be pushing like 600 then. But his size and presence in the middle is something the Viking shave not seen since the likes of former defensive tackle...

Joseph had perfect idol for new role with Vikings

Among the most gregarious players to step inside the Minnesota Vikings' locker room in recent years, few could match up with Pat Williams' presence -- both physically and in spirit. Williams was every bit of 330 pounds, despite his listed weight of 317 pounds. Big was also a good description for his loquaciousness. Williams, with his Louisiana drawl, loved to talk. Minnesota...

Jared Allen, Kevin Williams looking at final days together in Minnesota

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- When Jared Allen arrived in Minnesota in 2008, he was an electric pass rusher coming over in a big pre-draft trade from the Kansas City Chiefs with a league-leading 15.5 sacks. Kevin Williams was the star of the Vikings' defensive line; already a three-time, first-team All-Pro and one part of the "Williams Wall" with Pat Williams. Kevin Williams...

Kevin Williams reflecting on 11 seasons with Vikes

Kevin Williams has never been incredibly loquacious in public. He has always preferred to use that syrupy Arkansas drawl to talk about the game and not much else, batting away attention like he brushes aside a center on his way to the quarterback. As his 11th, and possibly last, season with the Minnesota Vikings enters the final quarter, Williams' tune is starting to change...
