Caleb King Signs With Minnesota Vikings After Supplemental Draft

Former Georgia Bulldogs RB Caleb King made it through the NFL Supplemental Draft without being selected, but didn't have to wait much longer. Via Marc Weiszer, King's agent says the back fielded multiple offers before signing with the Minnesota Vikings.

He'll face the same challenges as any other undrafted free agent, but even more so, as he won't have very much time to try and impress his way into a job. A practice squad spot for 2011 would be a pretty good landing after he was found academically ineligible at UGA, so let's hope for that.

One good sign for King: the Vikings only have four halfbacks on their roster. Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart will likely get almost all of the regular season carries, while rookie Tristan Davis and vet Lorenzo Booker are also competing for playing time. Minnesota somehow has more quarterbacks than it does halfbacks. All right.
