With Harvin on IR, the Vikings sign...


OT Troy Kropog from the practice squad. Really? Well, ok then. Apparently the Vikings seem pretty happy with their current wide receivers. Incredible. Here is what ESPN 1500 had to say:

Tackle Troy Kropog was promoted from the practice squad on Friday afternoon, the team announced.

Kropog, 26, was a fourth-round draft pick in 2009 out of Tulane who appeared in seven games over parts of four seasons with the Tennessee Titans.

The 6-foot-6, 325-pound tackle was waived by the Titans in September and claimed by Jacksonville, which cut him three days later. He signed to the Vikings practice squad on Sept. 18.

The move gives the Vikings nine offensive linemen on the active roster. They've been activating seven on game days, with Joe Berger and Geoff Schwartz serving as the backups.

I'm still stunned that they would bring up a lineman from the practice squad, rather than say a guy like, oh, I dunno, maybe WR Chris Summers or any other wide receiver free agents that are floating around like:

-Manny Arcenaux
-Deion Branch
-Antonio Bryant
-Patrick Crayton
-Braylon Edwards

There are many more options than just those. Anyway, what do you all think?
