When word broke that Vikings receiver Sidney Rice unexpectedly underwent hip surgery, we thought that the Vikings may explore trading for a certain wideout who plays in the AFC East.
But with Randy Moss of the Patriots likely going nowhere, the Vikings instead have swung a deal for Dolphins receiver Greg Camarillo.
Compensation is not yet known. It’s believed to be a cornerback, possibly Benny Sapp.
Camarillo likely will compete with Greg Lewis for third spot on the depth chart in Minnesota. Camarillo was the hero of Miami’s only win during a 1-15 regular season in 2007, scoring on a 64-yard catch and run in overtime.
UPDATE: Though it’s not official yet, the deal will be Camarillo for Sapp, once finalized.
