Vikings re-sign tight end Jim Kleinsasser
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Tight end Jim Kleinsasser has re-signed with the Minnesota Vikings for a $9 million, three-year contract.


The deal was finished Saturday, giving Kleinsasser $3.5 million guaranteed and keeping the North Dakota native in line to finish his career with his favorite team from childhood. Kleinsasser was a second-round draft pick in 1999 and has become one of the league's most rugged blockers.

Over 10 seasons, Kleinsasser has only 1,466 yards and six touchdowns receiving, but he's a vital part of the Vikings' rushing attack with his ability to seal the edge.

"We're excited to have Jim back," coach Brad Childress said. "We wanted him back, and we're glad he took time out from ice fishing to come in and sign his contract. Jim's an important part of our offense and the kind of guy you want in your locker room."
