Did the Vikings Learn Nothing from Troy Williamson?

It appears not because, according to Judd Zulgad, the Vikings could be planning on taking a look at one of the few wide receivers from recent drafts that managed to be even more craptacular than Williamson was.

We’re checking on this one because it seems like a long shot but the Saginaw (Mich.) News reported Sunday that former Detroit Lions receiver Charles Rogers is going to workout for the Vikings.

Good lord, I hope this isn't true.  Rodgers hasn't played in an NFL game since 2005, and wasn't particularly impressive during the time he was in Detroit.  Honestly, I know the Vikings' receivers aren't great or anything, but which one of them would Charles Rodgers actually beat out for a roster spot?

UPDATE:  Never mind. . .apparently it was a false alarm.

I really wouldn't have blamed him if it was true, though. . .there are few better places in the NFL to play than Minnesota.  Before too much longer, everyone's going to want to come here.
