Vikings Sign Wide Receiver That's Better Than Percy Harvin

With the Vikings being short-handed at wide receiver this week, thanks to Asante Samuel's cheap shot completely and totally acceptable hit on Sidney Rice, they did the only logical thing that they could do.

They signed wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias to a contract.

Iglesias will be on the 53-man roster this weekend.

Iglesias hasn't done a damn thing in the National Football League thus far. . .literally. Since being drafted out of Oklahoma in 2009 by the Chicago Bears, he's been active for all of one NFL game, and has yet to catch a single pass.

But Iglesias is known for one thing here at The Daily Norseman, or at SB Nation in general, at least. In 2009, after the Vikings had drafted wide receiver Percy Harvin in the first round of the draft and the Bears had taken Iglesias in the third round, the folks over at Windy City Gridiron. . .by a nearly 70/30 margin. . .declared that Iglesias was a better wide receiver/football player/whatever than Percy Harvin.

Going into the 2010 season finale, Iglesias only trails Harvin by 123 receptions, 1,589 receiving yards, and 11 receiving touchdowns. Not to mention the four touchdowns that Harvin has contributed on rushes and kickoff returns.
