Vikings add a receiver -- but not THAT one
By Kevin Seifert
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- We don't have any updates on the Vincent Jackson saga as we enter the final hours of his current trade window. But I can report that the Minnesota Vikings have added another receiver.
Someone looking a lot like veteran Hank Baskett arrived on the practice field a few minutes after stretching Wednesday afternoon. Rookie tight end Mickey Shuler wasn't on the field. The team hasn't confirmed anything, but you can reasonably guess what the transaction was.
Receiver Percy Harvin (hip) also wasn't practicing. As we discussed Wednesday morning, Baskett is probably here because of uncertainty on Harvin -- not because the Vikings have given up on acquiring Jackson.
As always, stay tuned.
