Photo: Lots and lots of Seminoles
By Kevin Seifert
You're no doubt well aware of the Minnesota Vikings' apparent affinity for ex-Notre Dame players. So you might be surprised that at the moment, at least, the Vikings have more players from Florida State on their training camp roster (six) than those who played at Notre Dame (five).
The same is true for the Buffalo Bills, whose six former Seminoles tops the total of any other school on their roster. That's the background for this cool photo that Bills quarterback EJ Manuel tweeted out over the weekend. (Manuel has since undergone minor knee surgery.)
For those interested, the Vikings players are: quarterback Christian Ponder (7), receiver Rodney Smith (83), defensive tackle Letroy Guion (98), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (29), defensive tackle Everett Dawkins (79) and defensive tackle Anthony McCloud (76).
The Bills: Manuel (3), place-kicker Dustin Hopkins (5), punter Shawn Powell (6), long-snapper Garrison Sanborn (65), offensive lineman Zebrie Sanders (72) and linebacker Nigel Bradham (53).
