MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KMSP) - Rookie tight end Bucky Hodges will wear number 84 this season, taking the jersey of former Vikings' standout Randy Moss.
He was Minnesota's sixth round pick. He stands at 6 foot 6 inches and 257 pounds and is sure to garner some attention this season from fans and opposing defenses alike.
Hodges was a quarterback in high school who converted to tight end and can also play wide receiver, though right now he's all about doing whatever he can to get on the same page as quarterback Sam Bradford.
Fox 9's Dawn Mitchell joined Hodges for the day to see how his new life as a professional football player is shaping up.
