Greatest Minnesota Vikings pass-catching trios from every decade

  • Bernard Berrian
  • Percy Harvin

Years spent together:

Best year together:

  • 2009

There were a number of great pass catchers for Minnesota in the early 2000s, but it’s hard to argue the production of these three during their two seasons together.

Sidney Rice became a Viking after getting selected with the 44th overall pick in the second round of the 2007 draft from South Carolina.

Bernard Berrian was a Chicago Bear for four years before signing with Minnesota before the 2008 season. Percy Harvin was the 22nd overall pick of the 2009 draft from Florida and was hailed as one of the fastest players coming out of college.

During their first year together in 2009, Rice posted his best numbers as a pro with 83 receptions while Harvin had 60 as a rookie, and Berrian snagged 55 for a total of 198 receptions.

The 2009 Vikings were led by quarterback Brett Favre who passed the team to a 12-4 record and a tough overtime loss to New Orleans in the NFC Championship game.
