Deposed Vikings receiver Bernard Berrian is free to sign with any team he chooses after clearing waivers Thursday.
An article about Berrian’s time in Minnesota by Tom Pelissero of espn1500.com may not help Berrian get another job. The lack of production was a problem for him, but his seeming indifference to his struggles may have been a bigger issue.
“He wasn’t trying to improve his game, wasn’t trying to improve the team and wasn’t even bothering to pretend otherwise anymore,” Pelissero writes.
One former teammate said he’d bet that Berrian didn’t know many of his teammates names. He had a reputation for caring more about celebrity and fashion than football.
At 31 years old, we still suspect Berrian will get another chance. We’d bet on him getting another crack this year before Randy Moss or Terrell Owens did.
