Here is the entirety of the interview that was heard live Tuesday on ESPN 102.3 AM 1000 KSOO:

Weber, who per Augustana's website is listed at 6'1 and 205 pounds, aims to make an impression on the Minnesota Vikings coaching staff similar to what Augustana alum CJ Ham did just a few short years ago.

Weber, a Dawson, Minnesota native, will attend Vikings rookie minicamp this weekend as a tryout, in hopes of landing a roster spot ahead of further offseason activities for the NFL franchise.
