The Vikings waived Lestar Jean on Thursday and replaced him with another wideout on Friday.
The agent for wide receiver Josh Cooper announced on Twitter that his client has agreed to terms on a deal with Minnesota. Cooper was let go by the Browns last month.
Cooper made the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2012, allowing him to continue a partnership with quarterback Brandon Weeden that began when both men were at Oklahoma State. Cooper had 17 catches for 166 yards in 11 games for the Browns over the last two years, which wasn’t enough to keep him on the roster after Weeden shuffled off to Dallas this offseason.
The Vikings have Greg Jennings, Cordarrelle Patterson, Jerome Simpson and Jarius Wright back from last year and Cooper will drop into the mix with six other wideouts for any jobs that might be available beyond the top four on the Minnesota depth chart.
