I continue to think the Vikings are fine with the pass catchers they have; their potential problem areas are the secondary and the offensive line.

A good pass
The Vikes evidently aren't too interested in T.J. Houshmandzadeh (PFT), and that's the right thinking, in my view. Houshmandzadeh is a possession receiver (last three seasons: 10.2, 9.8, and 11.5 yards per reception), and I'm honestly not sure he does anything that Greg Camarillo can't do. It's not that Housmandzadeh couldn't be useful, but I don't really see him filling a big need. The Vikes have people they can throw to for short passes (Camarillo, Visanthe Shiancoe, Percy Harvin, Adrian Peterson). Without Sidney Rice, Bernard Berrian and Harvin need to be effective deep threats, but the Vikes have people they can throw short passes to, and don't really need Houshmandzadeh.
