    You think when he was notified, he said "What!?! Who's writing this script!?!"

    I would imagine someone in the locker room was the recipient of an F-5 once this news broke.

    ESPNews reports the Minnesota Vikings have released DL Brock Lesnar.
    So, Wraith in your opinion, what's his next move? Do you think he wants to try to play somewhere other than Minnesota or does he go running back to Vince McMahon's open arms?

    I heard he's up for the role of Puck in an Off-Broadway production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

    I will tell you this. (this is honest)

    When Mike Tice told him, Lesner gave Tice a big hug, and thanked him for the opportunity. Word had it Tice and a tear in his eye. Tice then went on to tell him that if another team does not pick him up he would be interested in having Brock play for him in NFL Europe. Tice feels the only thing the guy is lacking is live snaps and he can't get that on a practice squad.

    Well, that's promising. There are worse fates than making an NFLE team. Not to mention that should give some more exposure to the Europe game.

    That's great he made as much progress as he did. Going to NFLEL would be great for live action experience.

    However, one problem with NFLEL is many guys get tired after that season and coming into training camp.

    Good luck to him, nice to see it wasn't a PR stint.
