Ferguson visiting

Wide receiver Robert Ferguson, who was released Friday by the Green Bay Packers, is visiting the Vikings and was a spectator on the sideline at the afternoon practice.

Agent Brian Overstreet said Ferguson has tentative plans to visit Houston this evening and that the Texans and Vikings are the receiver's top two choices.

Overstreet said he has had "very preliminary" contract talks with the Vikings and that Ferguson hopes to make a quick decision.

"What he's looking to do is get back on the football field," Overstreet said. "This is not going to be a long, drawn-out process."

In other news, tight end Richard Owens (sprained ankle/knee) and rookie cornerback Mike Hawkins (bruised ribs) weren't on the field for the start of practice.

Neither was defensive tackle Fred Evans, who missed Friday night's 37-20 exhibition win at the New York Jets after appearing in Miami-Dade County Court the day before.

Offensive lineman Adam O'Connor (knee) was the only other player not practicing.

Rookie linebacker John Kerr (back) returned to practice.

Don't sign this guy! I'm a Viking fan living in Packer country and nobody shed a tear here when Ferguson was cut. The overriding sentiment was "good riddance." The fact that he can't hold a job where there is only one proven receiver should tell you something. Can anyone name the Packers 2nd and 3rd receivers? (answer: Greg Jennings and James Jones)
