According to Craig Peters of Vikings.com, the Vikings have signed Polish offensive lineman Babatunde Aiyegbusi. Less than 10 days ago, the 6’9″, 351-lb Aiyegbusi was still living overseas.
Aiyegbusi’s agent, Jeff Griffin, helped the 27-year-old find his way to an NFL contract despite never even playing college football.
The lineman recieved his travel visa on March 19, and he arrived in the States shortly after. Aiyegbusi first participated in a pro day hosted by the University of Texas-San Antonio.
“We went over those drills for about an hour and a half,” Griffin told Wright. “He got up Monday morning and performed those drills. So what you saw, that was raw. He had just learned the day before, then went out there and did it.”
