Nordin catches on with Vikings after recent release
Jake Nordin has donned the helmets of six National Football League teams so far, albeit mostly during workouts on practice teams.
The 2002 graduate of Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City who helped the Falcons win the Class AA state title in 2001 on the Metrodome carpet, is back home after being signed by the Minnesota Vikings Sunday night.
Nordin, a 6-3, 265-pound tight end from Northern Illinois University, was released by the Detroit Lions on Thursday.
