Relationships With Reiff & Cousins Help Compton Get Comfortable With Vikings
USD Alum In Seventh NFL Season
EAGAN, MN — Former Coyote Tom Compton is in Vikings Training Camp to begin his seventh NFL season. Though he’s a newcomer on his hometown team, Tom has plenty of common ground with his new teammates.
He got to know new quarterback Kirk Cousins well when the two roomed together as rookies in 2012 and played together in Washington through 2015. Compton also has a strong relationship with Parkston native and fellow offensive lineman Riley Reiff dating back to the NFL Draft combine.
That’s making the transition to the purple pretty easy for Tom, and should make him a valuable asset for the Minnesota Moving Company.
Compton and the Vikings open the preseason a week from tomorrow at Denver.
