The Vikes did not wait around to long did they. After finding out that they would be without Sid Rice and issues that Harvin has had ALL offseason. The Vikes sure getting their hands on some decent receivers.
The Vikings have acquired Greg Camarillo from the Miami Dolphins for CB Benny Sapp. Camarillo, 6-1, 190 pounds, played college football at Stanford and was signed by San Diego as an undrafted free agent in 2005. He played the 2006 season with San Diego before being claimed off waivers by the Dolphins in September 2007. He caught eight passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games that season. He had a career-high 55 receptions for 613 yards and two touchdown in 2008 playing in 11 games before tearing his ACL and last season caught 50 passes for 552 yards in 16 games.
I think that this is a good deal for the Vikings to make. Benny Sapp did not have much of a chance in making the team in first place. The Vikes thought might as well get something for Sapp before they cut him loose. It looks like that Camarillo will be competing with Greg Lewis for the #3 WR job. The best of luck to Benny Sapp see you in the regular season.
