This may be bad news for some Vikings fans, but USA Today reports that Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and ESPN college football reporter Samantha Steele are now engaged. According to USA Today, Ponder and Steele met earlier this year on the set of ESPN College Gameday, and have been dating ever since. When the 6-6 Vikings were slumping earlier in the season, some fans suggested that Ponder’s relationship with Steele was hurting his play on the field.
If Vikings fans really thought Ponder was struggling because of his relationship with Steele when they were dating, just wait until Ponder gets a taste of married life. #JoeyHarringtonStatus #6-10 #I’mSleepingOnCouchTonight
