Former Vikings That Are Going to the Super Bowl

Another year, another Super Bowl without the Vikings.

“Next Year”

Well, some folks who once wore the Purple and Gold are playing in Super Bowl 50. Perhaps the list will sway you one way or the other on who you’ll be rooting for (besides good commercials). How infuriating does this list make you?

Jared Allen

He was always – if anything – entertaining. The defensive end played for the Vikings from 2008-2013. An ill-fated stop in Chicago eventually led to greener (warmer?) pastures in Carolina. Although a foot injury may keep him from playing (yeah right!). My money is on Allen playing until he can’t physically walk.

Joe Webb

Yes, THAT Joe Webb. The Joe Webb that Vikings fans demanded start in place of the useless Christian Ponder. Good times. After signing with the Panthers in 2014, Webb has been a third-string QB, wide receiver, and kickoff returner…and is playing in the Super Bowl.

Mike Remmer

The offensive tackle was a waiver-claim by the Vikings in 2013. The Panthers signed him off the Rams’ practice squad late this season and has started at RT ever since.

Fred Pagac

Pagac was the Linebacker Coach and Defensive Coordinator for the Vikings from 2006-2013. He switched sides when he switched teams, and is the current Offensive Line Coordinator for the Broncos.

Joe Woods

The current Broncos Defensive Backs Coach had the same job with the Vikings from 2006-2013.







Could it be worse? Well, THIS guy could’ve been in the Super Bowl, had he not been waived by the Broncos last month.
