Vikings Sign Freddie Brown

August 10, 2010

The Minnesota Vikings opened training camp with 10 wide receivers on their 80-man roster. With Sidney Rice battling a hip injury and Percy Harvin’s migraines giving him trouble once again, the Vikes have added one more. Brad Childress said the Vikings worked out two receivers this morning, but went with Freddie Brown. Childress commented that Brown would provide “fresh” legs to an overworked receiving corps.

After spending the 2009 season on the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad, Brown was waived in late July to make room for the signing of Terrell Owens. Originally a 7th-round draft choice, Brown has yet to see any NFL action.

The 6-3, 215 pound receiver out of Utah is best known for his 125 receiving yards on 12 catches during the Utes’ upset of the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2009 Sugar Bowl.

To make room for Freddie Brown, the Vikings released defensive back Terrell Skinner.
