John Randle is going to be honored on November 30th game hosting the Bears. He is going to be the 17th member of the Ring of Honor. He has the most sacks as a Defensive Tackle(5th overall). Here is how everything starts for Randle:
Signed by the Vikings as an undrafted rookie free agent from Division II Texas A&I in 1990, Randle led or tied for the team lead in sacks in nine of his 11 seasons with the Vikings. His 114 career sacks rank third in team history and are the most by a defensive tackle. He earned starting spots in six consecutive Pro Bowls (1993-98). Pretty good for a guy who was signed as a rookie free agent.
He is the lone reason that I ever became a Viking fan. I loved the way he played with the intersity on every play and every down of the game.Congrats goes the John Randle
