Minnesota receiver Charles Johnson: ‘Grateful for Opportunity to Play for Vikings’
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Charles Johnson joined Jeff Thurn on Tuesday's edition of Overtime Live from Radio Row at the Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.
Hear Johnson's interview with Thurn below:
Johnson shares his story into the NFL after being drafted by the Green Bay Packers, then later signed by the Vikings?
"I was really prepared. I was coming off ACL surgery. Really hurt me my rookie year and injuries really plagued me. I had to be prepared, and I'm a guy that works hard. It's about opportunity and when hard work meets opportunity, it creates your success. Doesn't matter what job you are or what pick you are. If you don't get the opportunity to, you can't show anything you can do. So I'm grateful Minnesota did give me opportunity to showcase my abilities and I just ran with it."
