Minnesota Vikings Sign CFL Wide Receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux

The Minnesota Vikings have been signing a few different players at a rather unusual time of the year. Normally, free agency doesn't get underway until early March, but with uncertainty surrounding the league's current collective bargaining agreement, Leslie Frazier and the Vikings are taking their talent search in other directions.

Today, the team announced the signing of WR Emmanuel Arceneaux (AR-sen-oh), who has played the last two years for the B.C. Lions of the Canadian Football League. Arceneaux played his college ball at Steve McNair's alma mater, Alcorn State University in Lorman, Mississippi.

In two seasons with the Lions, the 6'2", 211-pound Arceneaux caught 130 passes for 1,972 yards and 12 touchdowns in 36 regular season contests, and an additional 17 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown in three CFL playoff games.
