Former Iowa standout Kevin Kasper is trying to extend his NFL career in Minnesota. The wide receiver/kick returner signed with the Vikings this past week. Kasper has played with Denver and Arizona and this past season played for Chicago in the Arena Football League after being cut late in training camp by the Houston Texans.
Kasper is one of 13 receivers on the team right now and says he wants to find a way to contribute. He says anytime he gets and opportunity he’ll try to make the best of it, from being a receiver to blocking to playing special teams.
Kasper hopes this opportunity will lead him back to the NFL. He says it’s good to be heading into his fifth season and he’s having fun. Kasper was a walk-on at Iowa and became the school’s all-time leader in receptions.
