Ronyell Whitaker, who played for Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin in Tampa Bay, started at right cornerback for the Rhein Fire and finished second on the team with eight tackles and a pass defensed in Rhein's 16-14 loss to Frankfurt on Saturday. The loss dropped Rhein into third place in the NFL Europe standings at 5-3.
Vikings wide receiver Aaron Hosack was on the winning end of that game. He started and caught four passes for 26 yards for the Frankfurt Galaxy.
