The 1987 NFL strike produced some fascinating names on the league's all-time rosters.  For three weeks, the league made the decision to play games with replacement ("scab") players.  For the Vikings, that meant their three-headed quarterback monster of Tommy Kramer, Wade Wilson, and Rich Gannon spent three weeks on the picket line, giving way to Tony Adams.

Adams spent four years as a part-time player for the Kansas City Chiefs in the mid 1970s.  His career numbers were unimpressive, and he moved on to the CFL for a couple of years.  There is no documentation of him playing pro ball between 1980 and his three-game stint with the Vikings in 1987.
