4x Pro Bowl wide receiver, Roddy White: 'I'd love to be a Viking'

Four-time pro bowl wide receiver Roddy White was interviewed in South Carolina on Thursday telling reporters, "I'd love to be a Viking."

Minnesota's wide receiver coach George Stewart used to be White's coach in Atlanta and the former Falcon seems open to a reunion. The 34 year old receiver is still a free agent after spending the last 11 seasons in Atlanta.

The last time the Vikings had a 1,000 yard wide receiver was Sidney Rice in 2009, which is the second-longest drought in the NFL.

White has six such seasons of 1,000 yards and has caught at least 80 passes seven times in his career. In 2015, White caught 43 passes for 506 yards.

Last season Vikings wide receivers caught just 6 touchdowns.
