Leber Back With Vikings… Kind Of

Last offseason, the Vikings decided to let linebacker Ben Leber leave via free agency despite showing very little signs of slowing down following what had been a quietly efficient run with the team.  It seems that they made the right decision, however, as Leber ended up sharing in the misery that plagued the St. Louis Rams.

Now the veteran is returning to the Vikings in a different role.

He has been hired by Vikings Entertainment Network which will see him conducting sideline interviews and appearing in official team videos throughout the offseason.

“It kind of presented itself,” Leber said of the new gig. “I got brought in by the Vikings and asked if I wanted to put my name in the hat for their new project. I said ‘sure.’ It sounded like a great opportunity.”

I have seen Leber’s media appearances, seen him do some stuff for NFL Network, and have always had a lot of respect for him as a player and as a charitable individual.  I for one am excited to see him connected to the team once again, and will look forward to seeing how he does next month.

  1. good for him…id have to liked him fight for a roster spot….hed made the roster and we need some help at the position…hed atleast made a competant backup..

    1. I’m not so sure he would have made it. I like the coaches like our young linebackers and see a lot of potential in all of them. I would take a c- 24 year old with potential over a c+ 34 year old who’s on the downhill portion of his career.

      But it is nice to see we still had a spot for him.

    2. WTF it is time to move on. Let the young players play. Forget about the old guys. We are a couple years from being in the playoffs. Let the Vikings build a young team that will compete for the title in a few years. Older timers don’t help rebuilding.
