Harrison Smith is essentially Han Solo. He roams the universe of Minnesota’s secondary like a scoundrel looking to blast his way into the action, capable of some very sly thievery, and is the most popular cast member when it comes to the female fanatics.
Han Solo is one of the most iconic characters in film history, but that wouldn’t be so if he were regularly sharing the screen with some random rebel trooper in every battle. Instead, it is the chemistry that Han shares with a Wookie that makes for pure movie magic.
And that is why many Vikings fans are interested in the options that exist at the safety position this offseason. They know that Andrew Sendejo was improved last season, they know there are a couple of promising young players behind him, but they also know that they’d love to see the Vikings finally cast an authentic Chewbacca next to their Han Solo to take the Vikings defense into hyperdrive.
