The Vikings' first round draft pick in 1972, Siemon was the middle linebacker behind the Purple People Eaters.  One of the most valuable players on one of the NFL's great defenses, his legacy often seems lost in the shadows of the great defensive line.  He is one of the great Vikings, though, and this is a very cool addition to my collection.  He added a note apologizing for the long wait.  Thanks, Mr. Siemon.
