    Where Linval Joseph Is "The Little Guy"

    If you wanted to count all of the times in his life where Linval Joseph has been “the little guy” in a picture, you likely wouldn’t have to use all the fingers on one of your hands. But, that was just the situation that happened a day or two ago. Andy Kenutis, the team photographer for the Minnesota Vikings, put this picture on his Twitter account earlier today.

After last year’s failure to protect Sam Bradford or generate any kind of ground attack, it’ll be no surprise for this group to constantly be under the microscope. It’s too early to get worked up about anything, but what is the state of Tony Sparano’s group now that OTA’s and Minicamp are in the rearview mirror. According to Matt Venzel of the Star Tribune, the Vikings have had 13 practices so far this offseason with six of them open to the media. In all six that were open to the media, only one starting spot was up for grabs. LT Riley Reiff,
