Vikings trade for Camarillo to bolster depleted receiving corps

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Just two days ago, the only time Greg Camarillo figured to be spending in Minnesota was when his Miami Dolphins play here in September.

Now he lives here.

The Vikings acquired Camarillo in a trade on Wednesday for cornerback Benny Sapp. Minnesota is hoping the shifty slot receiver can help add depth to a corps that is depleted with Sidney Rice's hip injury and Percy Harvin's migraines.

Camarillo says the news of the trade came as a complete shock to him. But he also says he's excited to join a contender and catch passes from Brett Favre.

Vikings coach Brad Childress says Camarillo has "A-plus" hands. He could see some playing time on Saturday night in the preseason game against Seattle.
