Defensive tackle Paul Dickson often drove the offense crazy by practicing at full speed, but he is remembered as a selfless teammate.

Would be highly doubtful to find more than 2 or three current players who play with the same tenacity that this photo shows him with.

He was a great person, I met him after he retired from football. He will be missed.

Worked with him at Computer City in the mid 90s. The man had a huge heart towards his co-workers. His Vikings term was before my time, but working with him briefly was a huge honor. Secondly, seeing him walk brought a new sense of sympathy towards long-career football players, his knees were so beaten up I just cringed watching him walk around.

Where did the football players go? And why did they leave? A good man, a good life!
