What Was Your Favorite Greg Camarillo Moment?

Pioneer Press beat reporter and Holy Trinity member Jeremy Fowler has reported that the Vikings will not be re-signing WR Greg Camarillo, who was acquired from Miami via a trade shortly before the 2010 season began.

At the time, Sidney Rice was either getting ready to undergo or had just had surgery on his hip, and the Vikings found themselves in need of a WR. The thought at the time was to move Percy Harvin outside with Bernard Berrian, have Camarillo slide into the slot, and truth be told, I thought it was a good move at the time.

The Vikings gave up CB Benny Sapp, Camarillo filled a need and was coming off of back to back 50+ catch seasons in Miami, and I thought he was going to have a Wes Welker-type season with Brett Favre throwing to him. Well, maybe not Welker like, but I thought 50 catches was almost a given.

Yeah, that never happened. For whatever reason, Camarillo never really found a role in Minnesota, which is kind of baffling to me. He's a hard worker, catches everything thrown his way, is by all accounts a good locker room guy, and Lord knows outside of Percy Harvin the Vikings have needed quality wide receivers the last couple of seasons.

So we bid a fond farewell to Greg Camarillo. Good luck Cammy, and if nothing else, I'll remember that you hustled your ass off whenever you were on the field:
