Polish prospect: Vikings give giant 27-year-old tackle a try

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Babatunde Aiyegbusi has limited American football experience in leagues in Germany and his native Poland. Yet the 27-year-old offensive tackle is getting a shot at the NFL.

He is the latest example of the obsessive search by NFL teams for unknown talent, a hunt unbounded by U.S. borders. Hulking at 6-foot-9 and 350 pounds, it's a wonder how Aiyegbusi has ever been hidden.

"I consider myself as a smart guy, so I feel like I can handle the playbook," Aiyegbusi said, catching his breath after a recent practice. "But still, in Europe, my physique was good enough for beating everyone. And down here, you guys are big and strong. And they've got good technique. If he's not stronger than you, he's probably got better technique and knows what you will do before you do it, actually."
