Minnesota Football: Golden Nugz 09-02-14

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Did you hear that MarQueis Gray is back in Minnesota?  Of course you did and so did he.

The Viking's 3rd TE was bombarded by media on his first day as a Viking.

While Gray attempts to move his belongings from Cleveland, he's still trying to process his role with the Vikings. It helps that Gray spent last season in Cleveland under offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who used Gray in two tight end formations and Wildcat plays as a rookie last year.

"I believe [Turner's] trusting me a lot, obviously, because he wants me to be here," Gray said. "I just got to make sure I do my part and uphold all the great things he's said about me."

And Viking coach Mike Zimmer had nice things to say about his new addition.

"We played against Marqueis last year a couple of times and he's a good athlete," said coach Mike Zimmer, Cincinnati's former defensive coordinator. "He's got some position flexibility and runs well."

Welcome back Mr. Gray.
