Williamson on the trade block

The Vikings have given permission to the agent of receiver Troy Williamson to seek a trade, according to a source close to the situation.

The Vikings have been mum on Williamson's status since the season ended. But agent David Canter is believed to be shopping Williamson in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine.

Williamson, the seventh overall pick in the 2005 draft, has managed just 79 catches for 1,067 yards and three touchdowns in three seasons with the Vikings. There were high hopes for him heading into the 2007 season, but he again struggled with dropped passes, and his playing time dramatically decreased.

Although the Vikings are empowering a trade, the market for Williamson, who is signed through the 2009 season, may be minimal, and interested teams may wait for the Vikings to release him.
