OTL: Husain Abdullah's pilgrimage

By Kevin Seifert


You might be aware that former Minnesota Vikings safety Husain Abdullah has taken the 2012 season off to connect with Muslims across the county and also make a pilgrimage to Mecca. Abdullah is making the trip with two of his brothers, including former Arizona Cardinals safety Hamza Abdullah. They've already spent 30 days visiting 30 mosques around the country and will head to Mecca in late October. They are hoping to catch on with NFL teams at the end of the season. ESPN's Bob Holtzman told the story Sunday morning on ESPN's "Outside the Lines."
