In remembrance of the September 11 terrorist attacks, the Minnesota Vikings focused on giving back to the community Tuesday.

Players such as defensive end Everson Griffen, full back C.J. Hamm, kicker Daniel Carlson and offensive tackle Mike Remmers visited St. Paul police officers at the Eastern District Station. They also delivered food and coffee.

The players toured the building, learning about day-to-day responsibilities.

Remmers says it’s something he’s happy to do because he believes these men and women deserve recognition.

“These guys, they work so hard and I don’t think they don’t get a lot of praise,” said Remmers. “There’s a lot of people that don’t realize how hard these guys are working and keeping us safe and I just really appreciate coming out and just hanging out with them for a little bit.”
