Todd "Forrest" Lowber?

Wanted to share a pretty funny comment from Vikings coach Brad Childress about rookie receiver Todd Lowber, the former Division III basketball and high jump champion.

Asked what Lowber has shown him so far, Childress said, "He has shown that he hasn’t played much football, and I think it probably qualifies if that’s the first time that he has had shoulder pads on.

"That would qualify as not much football, but he is a wonderful athlete," Childress said. "He’s a little bit like Forrest Gump now, and sometimes we kid him about that. It’s like, run, Todd, run. He can run and run and run and run and run and run, and yet had a pretty good hand-eye."

On a serious note, Childress applauded Lowber's hand-eye coordination and, of course, praised his potential.

"He is just continuing to grow," Childress said. "A lot of the things he is experiencing for the very first time ever.

Great quote. Thanks for sharing! Any chance at a guy who can "run and run and run and run" returning kicks like Mr. Gump?

He's got enough on his plate. I don't think they want to pile more on...
