Perhaps he can help

Perhaps he can help reverse the low attendance numbers in Minnesota. Pope visiting Minnesota
No, not that pope. Derrick Pope, a LB who played for the Miami Dolphins. According to, Pope is visiting with the team through Thursday. Vikings VP Rick Spielman drafted Pope in the seventh round, in Miami in 2004. Pope started in place of Zach Thomas nine games last season.

He finished the season with 64 tackles, intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble. In addition, Pope is also a good special teams player.
Oh, you were expecting the Other Pope. No, he could probably help out the Church in Minnesota, but I doubt he has much influence on the Norsemen.

P.S., he signed today too. Another reason to cheer for the Vikings. "Honey, what are you doing?" "Not much, just watching the Pope on TV."
