Lesnar Signs With Vikings

The Vikings are have announced the signing of former World Wrestling Entertainment personality Brock Lesnar.

The Vikings signed World Wrestling Entertainment personality turned defensive lineman Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar worked out for the Vikings earlier this spring, but his workout left team officials unimpressed. Head coach Mike Tice said a motorcycle accident before that workout limited Lesnar's effectiveness.

His second workout with the team went better today, and the Vikings signed him. Lesnar is believed to have signed off on a waiver on the contract if his groin injury resurfaces.

Lesnar would be tabbed for the practice squad this year and possibly NFL Europe next spring if he continues to show progress in his football techniques.

Ben Nauman was released.

The Vikings also signed guard Tam Hopkins, a second-year player from Ohio State and released defensive tackle Jeff Womble to make room for Hopkins.
