Our hearts are heavy as we announce the passing of #Vikings Legend Mick Tingelhoff.

Vikings Mourn Passing of Mick Tingelhoff

Tingelhoff played for the Vikings for 17 times from 1962-78, and didn’t miss an individual game throughout that span. He holds the third-longest consecutive games played streak in NFL record at 240, behind only Brett Favre’s 297 and Jim Marshall’s 270. Longtime Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers matched Tingelhoff’s mark before he retired. Tingelhoff was inducted in to the Hall of Popularity in 2015.

Tingelhoff’s cause of death isn’t known as at the time of this publication, though his health was at decline lately. He was one of the original band of players who filed a concussion lawsuit resistant to the league, where they claimed these were misled about the long-term ramifications of head injuries, as reported by  The Associated Press. The NFL eventually settled in 2013, and can pay around $1 billion which covers more than   65-calendar year period.

Tingelhoff was raised on the farm in Nebraska and played for the Cornhuskers before latching on with the Vikings and switching from linebacker through the preseason of his rookie season. He became the anchor associated with an imposing offensive series that helped them get 10 division game titles within an 11-season period from 1968 to 1978. He was a five-time All-Pro selection, despite his undersized report on 6-foot-2 and 237 pounds.

Met him at Blainebrook bowl back in the 70’s where the Vikings would make regular appearances to sign autographs… Great guy and may he Rest In PeaceMatt Sander wrote
I ran into Mick at a gas station as a kid in the 90s. He noticed my brother and I were wearing Huskers jackets and asked my Dad what our ties were to Nebraska. Mick mentioned he grew up there, but said nothing more about who he was. He was just being friendly on his way out. It wasn’t until the guy behind the cash register said, “You know who that was, right?” that we (more so my dad) realized who we just met.
