Vikings need receiving threat

By | Posted Tuesday, June 5

After perennially solid play from Minnesota Vikings wide receivers back in the Cris Carter /Randy Moss era, Vikings fans are befuddled by the inconsistencies of Viking receivers in the last two years. Troy Williamson cannot be Randy Moss, and it was painful for Vikings fans to learn this from Williamson's mediocre performance with the Vikings thus far.

The Vikings are hoping to inject some hope at the position for this season by drafting three receivers in April including second-round pick Sidney Rice. The Vikings will look for Rice to possibly step into the number one receiver spot in the pecking order. Otherwise, Mike Wobschall of reports five-year veteran Bobby Wade looked great at mini-camp over the weekend. Wade was signed by the Vikings in the offseason after spending time with the Chicago Bears and the Tennessee Titans. Williamson is still a likely candidate for a starting job come September as he worked out with the first team during mini-camp and probably will through training camp.

Overall, the Vikings have 13 receivers on their roster right now to choose from. Let's hope they make the right choices in hopes of returning their receiving corps to half of the potency of the Randy Moss heyday.
