The National Football Post is reporting that star CFL wide receiver Andy Fantuz will be working out for the Vikings, as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers, next week.
Fantuz is a big wide receiver, standing 6'4" and weighing in at around 220 pounds. This season for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, he caught 87 passes for 1,380 yards and six touchdowns. In his CFL career, he has caught 276 passes for 4,136 yards (15.0 ypc) and 23 touchdowns.
He played in the East-West Shrine Game in 2006 after an outstanding college career at the University of Western Ontario, and tried out for the Detroit Lions, but was never signed to an NFL contract.
Sounds like an intriguing person to bring in for a workout. Not sure how much will come of it, but he could be an interesting prospect to keep around and bring to camp next season, if nothing else.
