Vikings Cut Wrestler Brock Lesnar

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minneapolis (Ticker) - Pro wrestler Brock Lesnar lasted a little more than a month in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings on Monday cut the former World Wrestling Entertainment champion.

Lesnar signed with the Vikings on July 27 after going through a strenuous 45-minute workout for coach Mike Tice.

The 6-3, 286-pound Lesnar had not played football since high school, and was trying to make the Vikings as a defensive tackle.

Well at least he tried. Making millions at wrestling and decided he'd quit to try to live out a dream. I have to give him credit for trying.

Q: How did Brock take the news?
A: He was great; he gave me a hug. He was very happy for the chance. When he called me all he asked for was an opportunity, and I think we gave him a good opportunity to see if this is what he wanted to do. I suggested to him that he should at some point end up in NFL Europe and play. Hopefully that will be as a Viking. We'd be proud to have him be a Viking and representing us in NFL Europe and continue with his development. But he has to play football. He's not going to get any better in the weight room. He's already as strong as an ox. He needs to go play football. The NFL has created an avenue for players like that with NFL Europe, and that's a perfect venue for a guy like Brock Lesnar, a guy like Ben Nelson.
