Vikings | Pinkston to serve as teamís deep threat

Kevin Seifert, of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings WR Todd Pinkston's primary role will be as a deep threat. "We think he can fill the need of a receiver that can stretch the field," said team vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman. "That gives you an opportunity for big plays. I don't want to get into the positives or negatives about his past. I just felt, and Coach Childress felt strongly, that he is a football player who knows the system and can improve our ball club."
