Drum roll please! The 90th man is now on board, taking the Viking ship to the legal NFL roster limit of the moment.
The very last Viking (so far), signed up at the start of training camp, is free agent Scott Kooistra, offensive tackle, a seven-year NFL vet, formerly of the Ravens, Browns, and Bengals, 6-6, 335, age 30, who played for N C State and was born in Madison, WI.
Now, all of you fine people who have been looking for help at tackle know who was left on the top of the available part of the barrel, come closing time.
Fans will like you better than Ryan Cook, who had a persistent, bad habit of jumping offside.
Everyone starts somewhere. Beat people out, and good luck staying aboard.
