According to a Fox 6 Sports in Milwaukee, the Minnesota Vikings have released Javon Walker and signed T.J. Houshmandzadeh.
UPDATE: Judd Zulgad, a Vikings beat reporter who covers the team for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, reports that according to an NFL source, nothing has happened between the Vikings and Houshmandzadeh at this point. And that no deal is done.
Zulgad reported on Friday that Minnesota was not entertaining trade offers for Houshmandzadeh.
The Vikings were were one of three teams in the running for Houshmandzadeh’s services last season, but the 32-year-old receiver ultimately chose Seattle.
Minnesota is taking one last shot at a Super Bowl with Brett Favre at the helm, so it makes sense to add another weapon to his arsenal, particularly with Sidney Rice out with a hip injury and the issues with migraine headaches for Percy Harvin.
