Free Agency 2012: Vikings Sign Receiver Bryan Walters

The Minnesota Vikings signed receiver Bryan Walters on Monday.

If you are unfamiliar with the career of Walters, the Pioneer Press described it thus:

With three career catches for 27 yards, Walters will have much to prove in training camp to make the roster.

The former Cornell standout went undrafted in 2010 and signed with the Chargers, who released him because of a hamstring injury, re-signed him to the practice squad, dressed him for four games in 2011 and released him again last month.

Incidentally, two of Walters' three catches came in the Vikings' season-opening loss to San Diego.

Walters joins a thin receiving corp that includes Percy Harvin, Michael Jenkins, Devin Aromashodu, Stephen Burton, Emmanuel Arceneaux, Kris Adams and Kerry Taylor.

While Harvin and Jenkins are solid, the rest of the crew has yet to prove themselves. Aromashodu had 26 receptions last season, while Arceneaux has one career catch, Burton two career catches, Adam and Taylor zero.
