The Gophers product, signed as an undrafted free agent in 2010, has become invaluable to the Vikings.

The Wolves definitely need love. The hunting of them is just barbaric. Oh, wait..... Never mind!

If something happens to Cassels, I hope they put Sherels in as quarterback.

Sherels is a really good football player but it's pretty sad when your punt returner is better than most of your starting defensive backs.

great story, sounds like a great kid. Wouldn't be playing at all If the Vikings had any talent in the secondary. Robert Blanton is terrible & he's playing a lot as well. jmho

Sherels has made me a fan. He always puts forth max effort. Is also faster than I thought. Good attitude with a willingness to learn. what's not to like.

As much as I like Sherels as a decent return guy, he is awful is pass coverage. And don't forget this folks... Marcus Sherels is only on the team because Bobby Felder went on IR after the the 4th preseason game. Felder is a very good return man, and MUCH better in pass coverage. If he's healthy next year, Sherels is gone. Felder owned that last DB spot until his injury, and it wasn't close.

Agree.. Sherels has really really struggled with pass coverage. He gets burned more times than he makes plays. Just keepin it real.
