Vikings react to Mike Zimmer hiring

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings' decision to hire Mike Zimmer as their next head coach was an immediate hit with one Vikings player in particular: tight end Kyle Rudolph.

The Cincinnati native grew up a fan of the Bengals, and had just started at Notre Dame when Zimmer became the Bengals' defensive coordinator in 2008. When word surfaced that the Vikings had hired Zimmer on Wednesday, Rudolph was one of the first players to take to Twitter with his reaction.
