The Vikings aren’t playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday but that doesn’t mean Minnesota football fans are left with nothing to anticipate. One current Viking and two former Vikings are up for important awards/honors over the weekend.
Former Vikings WR Cris Carter and DE Chris Doleman are two of 17 finalists for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2011 will be announced live on NFL Network on Saturday, February 5. The unveiling of the class will be made during a 90-minute special, Road to Canton: Hall of Fame Announcement Show: Class of 2011 presented by Van Heusen/JC Penney. The program airs live starting at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT)
S Madieu Williams joins Oakland Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha and Bears DE Israel Idonije as finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. The winner of the award will be announced live on FOX before Super Bowl XLV.
Be sure to tune into the coverage of both announcements to see if these Vikings will be recognized for achievements they certainly deserve.
