Notebook: Matt Asiata ‘deserves’ to be involved, Zimmer says

By akrammer@1500espn.com

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Matt Asiata planted his right hand in the face of Raiders cornerback T.J. Carrie, sending the defender to the ground as he collected the rest of his 13 yards on the play in Saturday’s exhibition against Oakland.

Asiata, entering his fourth NFL season since he was initially cut from the Vikings practice squad in 2011, is known for taking the yardage in front of him instead of breaking loose and shedding tacklers. However, coaches and the man he filled in for last season, Adrian Peterson, have noticed a little more out of Asiata this preseason.
