The Minnesota Vikings have added a tall wide receiver to their roster, announcing the signing of Lestar Jean. Twenty-six-year-old Jean, who stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 202 pounds, made only one start in 27 games with the Houston Texans. He caught 10 passes for 186 yards and one touchdown.
Desmond Bishop’s first practice with the Minnesota Vikings was also his first in almost a year. The recently signed linebacker missed last season with Green Bay because of a torn right hamstring, an injury he suffered in an exhibition game. The Packers cut him last month, and he joined the rival Vikings soon after.
