The Minnesota Vikings were able to win the NFC North division title last season with a Week 17 victory over the Green Bay Packers. They are hoping to repeat that success, but that won’t be easy. Rumors are still floating around about what the Vikings could do to improve their roster even more, and there is one player in particular who is being mentioned at this point in the offseason.

Russell Baxter of Bleacher Report opined that the Vikings could end up signing former Atlanta Falcons’ star wide receiver Roddy White to boost their offense.

White has had a rough past couple of seasons with the Falcons. He was used less and less each year, but no one can take away his prime years when he was one of the top receivers in the NFL. Minnesota would be signing White to be a supporting member of the offense rather than a focal point.

Last season with the Falcons, White ended up catching 43 passes for 506 yards and a touchdown. The majority of his career, White has been a 1,000-yard wide receiver, although those days could very well be behind him. He is still a capable receiver with great hands and the ability to run a route very well.
