The Minnesota Vikings cut their longest-tenured player this week, as veteran Cullen Loeffler officially lost the team's long-snapping duties to Kevin McDermott. On Tuesday, Loeffler thanked the fans that supported him for more than a decade.

"Thank you for all the years. Thank you for all the support," Loeffler said, per David McCoy of WCCO-TV. "I just want to, at some point, come back and see this team with a Super Bowl ring and trophy."

Loeffler, 34, joined the Vikings as an undrafted rookie out of Texas in 2004. Through 11 seasons with the team, he played in 171 games and missed only five.

"This has been just a tremendous experience," Loeffler said, via WCCO-TV. "Minnesotans in general have been just great."
