“Over the past six years, Dalvin has been very important to our company. His love of playing football in front of the Vikings fan base was evident, and that connection branched out into the community he impacted around the Twin Cities. Dalvin helped. We launched the Vikings Table food truck and continue to benefit the Minnesota Vikings Foundation. We advocated that his leadership in the locker room and all-out effort on the field were undeniable and the main reason he was a team captain for so many years. I look forward to welcoming Dalvin back as a legend with thanks for all he has done for the Vikings.”
