Former Viking Matt Birk Talks New Book, Life After Football

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A lot has changed for Minnesota native and former Viking Matt Birk since he retired from football after winning a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens.

For one, he has lost a significant amount of weight. The Cretin-Derham Hall alum is also now an author, and he joined WCCO-TV's Mark Rosen Sunday night to talk about life after football. He's the new author of a book called, "All Pro Wisdom."

Birk was a rookie offensive lineman for the Vikings in 1998 and played 15 seasons before retiring as a Super Bowl champion. His book addresses personal greatness, professional greatness and what it takes to get there.
