Linval Joseph checks in at #83 on NFL Network Top 100 of 2017

Linval hungry. . .for a spot on the list

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Network knocked out the first two installments of their Top 100 of 2017 series this evening, and a second member of the Minnesota Vikings has made the list in the early going.

After quarterback Kirk Cousins was tabbed at #94. . .for stuff he did when he wasn’t a Viking, but still. . .the first member of the 2017 Vikings popped on to the list, as big Linval Joseph made the list at #83.

Joseph has been one of the best nose tackles in the National Football League for quite some time now, and it’s nice that he’s finally getting some sort of recognition for it. He’s a big part of what makes the Vikings’ defense the best in the NFL, and he’s going to be a part of the team for quite a while to come.

Congratulations to both Linval Joseph and Kirk Cousins on their inclusion on this year’s list. I’m guessing there are going to be many more Vikings to come as the list rolls on.
