Vikings | Tice: Make me Keep Six Wide Receivers

Anthony Maggio, of KFAN.com, reports Minnesota Vikings WRs Kelly Campbell and Keenan Howry may be battling for the fifth and final wide receiver spot, unless head coach Mike Tice can be convinced to keep six. "At this point we're scheduled to keep five active receivers, possibly six," Tice said. "Certainly one or two more on the practice squad. Big competition is guys like Kelly (Campbell) and (Keenan Howry) are fighting for that fifth spot right now. Maybe one of them can make us keep six. We'll see how it works out as we progress." Howry isn't as fast as Campbell, but proved he was valuable last season with his punt returning abilities and is currently the team's No. 1 punt returner. Although Campbell is higher on the depth chart, Tice has said how big of a loss Howry was last year and could pass on Campbell for Howry depending on how the rest of camp goes.
