"Our expectations are high this year," Birk said. "I'm not into predictions, but our goal every year is to win the division."

Birk, 31, is about to start his 10th NFL season. Is he ready for another 16 games spent smashing into defensive linemen?

Wearing old cargo shorts and a T-shirt, looking like any average Joe who happens to carry 310 pounds of muscle, Birk smiled.

"Well, I can't dance," he said. "So I might as well play football."

Jim Souhan can be heard Sundays from 10 a.m.-noon on AM-1500 KSTP. jsouhan@startribune.com
