Hutchinson Credits Randle For His Success

During his Hall of Fame induction speech last night, Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle John Randle thanked his teammates with the Seattle Seahawks, where Randle played from 2001-03.

One player who thanks Randle is current Vikings guard Steve Hutchinson, who was one of the Seahawks' two first-round picks in 2001.

"I tell people all the time, my first three years in the league were against him in Seattle and if I’m anything today it’s because I had to go against him," Hutchinson said via Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune. "When you practice against a guy like that day in and day out the games kind of seem easy. Everyone else seems like they are going in slow motion. I’d hate to have played against him in his prime, which I’ve talked to a lot of guys that did. But for a guy that was in years 12 through 14, [Randle] was still moving faster than anybody I probably played against those first couple of years."
