|The Minnesota Vikings take their turn in the examination room after losing to Green Bay.|
What made the Vikings think that veteran receiver Bernard Berrian was worthy of another chance in 2011, even if it was on a renegotiated contract at a reduced rate? Berrian had been invisible for two seasons since averaging 20.1 yards per catch in 2008. It was generally thought that he never connected with quarterback Brett Favre over the stretch, but maybe Favre was on to something. Berrian has now been deactivated twice for games this season, once as a disciplinary measure and on Sunday for reasons that Frazier wouldn't explain. Frazier said that Berrian's future will be discussed this week. If he is released, Berrian will go down as the worst veteran acquisition in an otherwise admirable time period for the Vikings.
