Rice and Harvin Questions make Green Bay as NFC North Frontrunner


It has been a tumultuous training camp for the Minnesota Vikings. The recent medical issues pertaining to Percy Harvin’s migraines and Sidney Rice’s hip surgery have added more questions to the mix. With Brett Favre’s late arrival and all of the missed time for Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings have not taken many snaps together as a cohesive offensive unit this preseason.

The Vikings’ receiving corps has obviously suffered some major blows recently, but the front office has attempted to offset these somewhat by the recent signing of Javon Walker. He’s of course an old target for Brett Favre with the Green Bay Packers, but he is currently on the wrong side of thirty and has some unproductive seasons recently.

Greg Lewis is another receiver on Minnesota’s roster. The Big Ten product out of the University of Illinois has made some big catches with this franchise, but seems to be undersized to have the kind of impact that Rice could consistently have in the red zone.
