Minnesota Vikings Looking For Love

There, that ought to set off Google.

But, seriously, the Vikings had a couple of roster spots to fill, and prior to OTAs getting underway today, they filled them. Yesterday, they signed former Stanford defensive back Corey Gatewood to fill the hole left by the unexpected retirement of Asher Allen. Gatewood played both offense and defense during his time with the Cardinal, but was signed by the Vikings primarily as a defensive back. Not sure he has much of a chance to stick, but he's around for now.

The Vikings followed that up by signing undrafted South Florida wide receiver A.J. Love. Love apparently has trouble with going extended periods of time without getting injured, having injured his thumb in 2006 in addition to tearing his ACL in 2010. Despite playing in ten games in 2011, Love managed only nine catches. His best season came in his junior year of 2009, when he caught 26 passes for 489 yards (18.8 yards/catch) and four touchdowns. He actually got six seasons of eligibility with the Bulls due to the injury issues he had.

So, the Vikings got a couple more bodies for the Organized Team Activity/Training Camp season.
