Minnesota Vikings Sign A.J. Love As Percy Harvin Returns To Practice

The Minnesota Vikings resumed their OTAs on Tuesday in lovely Eden Prairie. Wide receiver news has been the hot topic early as the team announced that Percy Harvin is back to practicing and, in a fun turn of events, the team has decided to sign a new guy to run some routes.

Undrafted rookie A.J. Love was signed by the Vikings on Tuesday, the team announced, in a move that is likely more for depth during the offseason than anything else. While the latter part is simple speculation on my behalf, our friends over at the Pioneer Press agree with said assessment.

Love recorded 53 catches for 846 yards and six touchdowns from 2008-09 before tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in April 2010. He missed the entire 2010 season and caught 9 passes for 122 yards as a senior.

Love is the Vikings' second signing in as many days as the team fills out the back end of the roster to create competition in organized team activities. The Vikings on Monday signed former Stanford defensive back Corey Gatewood.

Gatewood was signed to take the roster spot of the retired Asher Allen, but Love's addition isn't due to any sort of subtraction. Either way, healthy competition can never hurt -- and the addition of a guy named "A.J. Love" makes it even better.
