    Vikes ink next Gates?

    http://www.vikingsnow.blogspot.com/

    The Vikings have agreed to terms on a three-year deal with Todd Lowber, who has never played organized football.

    So why did the Vikings sign him?
    Didn't see this posted anywhere but, a little small for a TE...

    Re: Vikes ink next Gates?

    After graduating last year, Lowber has been training to become an NFL receiver, and he was impressive enough in a workout on March 29 that several teams offered him contracts.
    Might be something there.
    ???

    Probably not a TE but rather in the mold of a WR.

    Most likely he is a little small for TE because he is a WR
    . Sub 4.4, freakish athlete, unbeleivable hands....I'd say he's worth a shot.

    Hmm, I guess the reference to Gates kind of threw me off.

    at 205 he's def too small for a TE, about 40-45 lbs of muscle too small

    bringing him in as a receiver can't hurt

    How do ya like them apples?!

    You're absolutely right.
    It can't hurt.
    Could be an exciting pick up.

    He has never played football before, i seriously doubt he will make the team.

    As others have said, the article says he's a WR.
    Bring him through mini-camps and into TC.
    If he's worthy, put him on the practice squad and then send him to Europe next year.


    Wonder how much the contract is for?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
