Minnesota Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe called out teammates after what he viewed as a lack of effort after Minnesota's 42-20 loss at the hands of the New Orleans Saints.

"I would say, you could see some guys hung it up," Shiancoe told ESPN radio. "Not a lot though. Like a very small handful of guys."

Shiancoe said that it was totally necessary that the guilty parties -- though unnamed -- be addressed.
