Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Posted by: Michael Rand under Vikings Updated: September 28, 2012 - 1:32 PM

Commenter RandBallsStu (Branding!) delights you every week by tracking down a former Minnesota sports figure about whom you might have forgotten. Stu?

--------

The Hunt Down

Name: Frank Walker
 
Claim to Fame, Minnesota: a defensive back for your Minnesota Vikings in 2010. He played in 11 games, started in two, and had an interception.
 
Claim to Fame, Everywhere Else: the Tuskegee (AL) College product was a 6th-round pick of the New York Giants in 2003, where he played through 2006. Has also played for the Ravens, Packers and Cowboys.
 
Where He Is Now: currently unemployed after playing for Dallas last season. Per Scout.com, SOURCES say he tried out for the Chiefs earlier this week.
 
Is He on Twitter: is he ever. Verified and everything.
 
Has He Been in a Twitter Feud with Patrick Reusse: no.
 
Did He Have Any Thoughts on Twitter About the “Replacement” Officials: yes. They have evolved (rough language on the second link, kids).
 
Has He Said Anything Else Vaguely Controversial and/or Offensive on Twitter: as noted by friend-of-the-blog Drew Magary, yes (again, rough language).
 
Glorious Randomness: We have been unable to confirm if his 2011 hiring request for his friend’s, uh, business (noted on the last link) was resolved successfully or not. But we do salute America’s small business owners.
