(WDAY TV) -- There will be plenty of emotions on the field and in the stands tomorrow at the Metrodome as Carrington native and UND legend Jim Kleinsasser plays his final game in the NFL.

It's been a wild 13 years for Kleinsasser, who is the longest tenured member of the Vikings who announced yesterday for fans to print out Fear the Beard cutout masks to honor the man who's worn

many hats with the Vikings everything from tight end, fullback to member of the offensive line.

Kleinsasser says, “There's something to be said sticking with an organization, I've got nothing but good things to say about the Vikes, always had support system here, this is my hometown team just the support from people from North Dakota and Minnesota can't be thankful enough for that.”

Kleinsasser will leave as the All-time leader in games played by a tight end for the Vikes at 181.
