Mike Zimmer as Magic Mike? One Vikings fan thinks so

On Thursday, Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph posted this hilarious photo of his teammates and head coach Mike Zimmer as characters in the movie Magic Mike.

Rudolph, Zimmer, Sam Bradford, Chad Greenway and Harrison Smith were photoshopped into the picture.

However it wasn't Rudolph who came up with the idea. Ryan Sonneson who's a Vikings fan created the image on Wednesday night and posted it onto Here's the full image Sorensen created.

With Teddy Bridgewater injured, Sonneson wonders if Mike Zimmer can work his magic with newly acquired quarterback Sam Bradford.

Sonneson told BringMeTheNews that he doesn't exactly know how Rudolph got ahold of the picture. But Sonneson said he "would have paid good money to see the look on Zimmer's face when he saw it."

There's still no word if the Vikings will start Bradford or Shaun Hill in their season opener Sunday. Until then, burn this image of the 'Magic Mike' Zimmer into your brain, permanently.
