The NFL is a league for long shots and the Minnesota Vikings just signed three.

… The 6-foot-5, 245-pound tight end (Nick Truesdell) was signed last year by the Indianapolis Colts in late July, but did not make the team. He has also had tryouts with the Packers and Bengals since finishing college at Grand Rapids Community College in 2013. Truesdell has played for a number of indoor football teams, including the Colorado Axemen, Bemidji Ice and Portland Steel.
