The Vikings said they would look at wide receivers this week and indeed they did. On Friday they had three guys in for try outs. No sign of Chad Johnson, Terrell Owens or Braylon Edwards though. The three guys who worked out were, shall we say, not exactly big names. How about Bryan Walters? How about LaMark Brown? And how about Raymond Webber?
Walters of course was with the Vikings in camp before being cut. Brown is a Minnesota State-Mankato guy who is actually listed as a tight end. And Webber is an Arkansas-Pine Bluff guy. Webber and Brown are both listed at 6-3, 220-ish which puts them in that split end range. Walters is of course a smaller guy who figures as a flanker.
And there you have it. The Vikings’ wide receiver options. Not counting practice squad player Chris Summers. I don’t see any Percy Harvin replacements in that group, do you? Stephen Burton will just have to step up.
That was a joke.
