EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have signed four players who took part in their rookie minicamp, including wide receiver Chad Beebe, the son of former Buffalo Bills wideout and folk hero Don Beebe.

Beebe led Northern Illinois last season with an average of 14.9 yards per reception. His father was a wide receiver and special teams player on all four of Buffalo’s Super Bowl teams .
