Vikings Sign CFL WR Arceneaux To 3-Year Deal

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have signed former CFL receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux to a three-year contract.

The 6-foot-2 Arceneaux caught 130 passes for 1,972 yards and 12 touchdowns in the previous two seasons with the B.C. Lions. He was undrafted out of Alcorn State in 2009, but worked out for eight NFL teams in December after playing well for the Lions.

Arceneaux joins a Vikings receiving group in flux. Percy Harvin will be back, but Sidney Rice could become a free agent and Bernard Berrian struggled through an ineffective season. Veterans Greg Lewis and Hank Baskett produced little as well and may not return.
