Getting to know...

...WR Bethel Johnson

I figured fans might want to know a little more about the Vikings' newest offensive threat.

Here is a smattering of information:

* He is from Corsicana, Texas, and he led his football team to the Class 4A state title game, averaging 22 yards per catch and scoring 16 touchdowns

* According to his draft profile, Johnson bench-pressed 320 pounds entering the NFL Combine

* His 117 catches for 1,740 yards are all-time highs at Texas A&M

* criticized him for not being precise in his route running, lacking blocking skills and dedication to the game.

* praised him for his burst and speed and his stiff-arm.

* He has seven NFL starts, five as a rookie for the New England Patriots in 2003.
