That was Robert Harris (90) at training camp (1992, I believe) with Noga (99), not Derrick Alexander, who was drafted in 1995, after Noga played his last down in the NFL for the Colts in 1994. I don’t have Twitter, Dustin, so would you mind informing VikeFans of this?

Richardson’s failure to defend the run properly in Zimmer’s defense in 2018 is probably why he wasn’t re-signed in 2019 (along with the cap) and a reunion is unlikely in 2021, even with a little bit of wiggle room in the cap. I’m not sure that Maurice Hurst would make any more sense than Richardson. Atkins makes the most sense because he has thrived under Zimmer and in Zim’s system before, whether pressuring the QB or filling his lanes in the running game.
