Vikings Tell WR Williamson He’s Free to Look for a Trade

WilliamsonThe Troy Williamson era in Minnesota appears to be over.  The Vikings today told Williamson that he is free to seek a trade, a move that would end three letdown seasons with the Vikings.  In those three seasons, Williamson, a former first round pick, caught just 79 passes for 1067 yards and three touchdowns.  He had just one touchdown the past two seasons.  “He’s property of the Minnesota Vikings right now and he’s under contract,” Vikings coach Brad Childress said. “We have spoken to his agent and he has the opportunity to go out [and seek a trade].”  ESPN’s John Clayton is reporting that 14 teams have been contacted about Williamson, and eight have shown enough interest to talk back to the Vikings about a deal.  Bottom line is Williamson has been a major bust, and it would be a shock to see the Vikings able to get much in return for him.

    Good article. It sounds like the Vikings are willing to waste 1st round picks at ease. They really need to get new scouts!

    It’s about time they got rid of this clown. Bad eyes my “eye”. This clown didn’t have an athletic bone in his body to find a football. Shame on the scouts for picking this pile. Hell, you watch 2 or 3 balls bounce off this bozo and you can see he wasn’t a receiver from day one. Next time, make sure they have at least caught a few passes in college. Sign him up for the track team but leave him off the football field…Better yet, trade him to the Bears, Lions or Packers, that should be payback enough.
