Minnesota Vikings Hangin' With Mr. Cooper

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings swapped one wide receiver out for another one on Friday afternoon.

The team signed former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Cooper to a a deal, the day after they waived receiver Lestar Jean.

Cooper is in his third season out of Oklahoma State, and hasn't put up a whole lot of stats thus far, hauling in just 17 catches in two NFL seasons. The 5'10", 190-pound Cooper is, however, familiar with the Browns' offense, having played under current offensive coordinator Norv Turner in Cleveland last season.

Cooper will now join a battle for spots at the bottom of the wide receiver depth chart. As ESPN's Ben Goessling points out (and I think most of us already know), the Vikings likely have four locks at the wide receiver positions right now in Cordarrelle Patterson, Greg Jennings, Jarius Wright, and Jerome Simpson. Beyond that, however, it looks like it's open season for guys to latch on at that #5 spot.

And if you're old enough to already have the song in your head based on the article title, here you go.
