MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Vikings unveiled their list of the all-time 50 greatest Vikings players on Sunday night.

The roster includes five players currently on the team. They are Jared Allen, Steve Hutchinson, Adrian Peterson, Kevin Williams and Antoine Winfield.

The list did not include quarterback Brett Favre, however another controversial name from the 2010 season did end up with a citation — Randy Moss.

The Vikings pointed out that there were nine team members on the list who were on the roster during the team’s last outdoor game in 1981: Matt Blair, Bud Grant, Tim Irwin, Tommy Kramer, Ahmad Rashad, Jeff Siemon, Scott Studwell, Sammy White and Ron Yary.

The Vikings are preparing to once again play an outdoor winter game. The team is set to take on the Chicago Bears at TCF Bank Stadium, as the Metrodome remains out of commission after a snowstorm caused the roof to collapse.

The list of 50 players was culled from an initial ballot of 100 contenders. See them all here.
