D’Imperio is in his second season out of Rutgers. He was a linebacker in college but has been converted to fullback by the Vikings. The transition has taken some time, and D’Imperio often looked raw and unsure of himself in the role during the preseason.
Tight end Jim Kleinsasser(notes) has been getting the bulk of the playing time as Adrian Peterson’s lead blocker. D’Imperio could spell him on occasion and contribute on special teams if he is activated.
Is this the roster move you were all anxiously waiting for? (Now where did that sarcasm font go?)
