Vikings announce captains for 2017 season

A day before facing off against the New Orleans Saints to kick off the 2017 season the Minnesota Vikings announced their captains for the season.

The six captains: Quarterback Sam Bradford, defensive end Everson Griffen, cornerback Terence Newman, left tackle Riley Reiff, defensive end Brian Robison and tight end Kyle Rudolph.

No huge surprises here. Reiff is a little odd considering he’s in only his first year with the team and missed a big chunk of training camp with a back injury.

Bradford is the quarterback, Griffen is a two-time Pro Bowler, Terence Newman is a solid veteran presence who can still play and Robison is one of the most-respected Vikings over the last decade.

The captains for the Vikings last season were Chad Greenway (retired), Griffen, Robison and Peterson (now with Saints).
