Pat Williams To Ceremoniously Sign With Vikings

Pat Williams will go down in history as one of the great all time undrafted players to make it in the NFL.

He played 14 seasons in the NFL, much of which was with the Vikings as part of the formidable “WilliamsWall.”  Following the 2010 season, however, the Vikings opted to move on from Pat and he was unable to catch on with any other team.  It is now being reported that Williams will sign a one day deal to officially retire as a member of the Minnesota Vikings.

“He’s one of the great all-time leaders and great all-time players here for the Minnesota Vikings,” Rick Spielman said of the situation.

Congratulations to Pat on a fine career that should eventually land him a place in Minnesota’s Ring of Honor.  The team has yet to find someone capable of filling his shoes after two and a half offseasons, which is only one of many ways we can point out just how great he was at what he did.
