Vikings coach Mike Tice said the team will sign former NCAA champion and pro wrestler Brock Lesnar to a contract and bring him to training camp, which begins Friday in Mankato, Minn.
Tice made the decision after putting Lesnar through strenuous 45-minute workout this morning. Tice said Lesnar, who hasn't played football since high school, would play the same defensive tackle position as veteran Chris Hovan.
Wow, that's... pretty wild. It'll be interesting now to see if Brock can make it through training camp and actually earn a spot on the Vikings' opening-day roster.
Here comes the pain, Brock.

Good point. This belongs more in the sports section.
Brock's probably a defensive tackle cause he hasn't played football since high school. He had trouble with his agility drills, sad thing is that he had trouble getting into a defensive position, which isnt so good being a defensive tackle and all.
But the Rock was a defensive tackle, and a damn good one too (had a bit of a hot temper though, I remember watching his biography on E!, and he started a fight on the field that even the mascot unwillingly got involved in...)
I read on espn.com's Page 2 today about a new book written about Vince McMahon called Sex, Lies, and Headlocks. http://espn.go.com/page2/s/assael/020730a.html Excerpt from the book, which looks like a decent read.
