Munnerlyn The Night Before AP News Broke (Video)

Captain Munnerlyn is a cornerback for the Minnesota Vikings, in his sixth NFL season. Munnerlyn played for the Carolina Panthers, from 2009-2013, before signing with the Viking this past offseason. To this point, the Alabama native has 7 career interceptions, including 5 returned for touchdown.

Last Thursday night, Munnerlyn appeared on the Vikings weekly radio show, Vikings Country, at The Sunshine Factory, in the Twin Cities suburb of Plymouth, Minnesota. After his appearance, Munnerlyn signed autographs.

Above is original video of Munnerlyn's evening.

The carefree event took place the night before news of the Adrian Peterson child abuse allegations were first reported. Since then, the Vikings have been in tumult, first reinstating Peterson on Monday, after deactivating him for last Sunday's game, then changing course on Wednesday. The Vikings placed Peterson on paid leave, through a special roster exemption granted by the commissioner.

This most recent development could very well lead to the end of Peterson's time in Minnesota.

In the hours after Wednesday's decision, Munnerlyn made news of his own, coming out in defense of Peterson and the actions he is accused of.
