In a move that will surely raise the hackles of the hackles of the hackles that have already been raised on Vikings fans this offseason, the Vikings have made a move that some will deem a waste of time.
The team has reportedly signed former point guard at Florida International University Nick Taylor.
The former basketball player work out at FIU’s pro day and apparently caught the Vikings attention by posting a forty yard dash in the neighborhood of 4.34 and 4.27. He attended the pro day after spending time with a low-level arena league last year.
The Vikings then brought Taylor in for a closer look on Friday and decided to sign him to a three year contract. Taylor said the team will give him a look as a return man, a receiver and a cornerback. He played defensive back for his arena team.
Taylor has a major uphill battle ahead of him if he plans on sticking to the roster beyond training camp.
