Yup, the Vikings are trying to find a new wide receiver. Last night Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune labeled the Vikings as one of two teams who were “hot” for Malcom Floyd, the other being the Arizona Cardinals. Now Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has reiterated the Vikings’ interest in Packers receiver James Jones.
No word today on Braylon Edwards but yesterday such luminaries of the NFL insider world as John Clayton said the Vikings were on him as well. At this point it seems receiver is the team’s top priority in free agency. Which makes sense as they just watched their #1 guy walk.
Here’s all we know for sure: Chad Ochocinco will not be in purple, because the Patriots already snapped him up. Not that he was ever going to wind up in purple but, as long as he was out there we always had reason to worry. Now we know that particular crazy train will not be pulling into Minnesota.
