Report: Vikings sold to Arizona businessmanby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
An announcement is expected Monday afternoon that Arizona businessman Reggie Fowler has reached an agreement with Red McCombs to buy the Minnesota Vikings. The purchase price is reported to be at least $625 million. If the deal is approved by the other owners, Fowler would become the first African American to own a National Football League team. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with MPR Sports Commentator Jay Weiner, who is covering the story for the Star Tribune. He says league approval is not a sure thing.
