Report: Dede Westbrook working out for Vikings

Westbrook could sign with the team if the workout goes well.

The Minnesota Vikings are in the market for another receiver and it appears they have their eyes set on Dede Westbrook.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Westbrook is at the team's headquarters for a workout on Saturday. While Rapoport says three teams are interested in his services, he will likely sign with the Vikings if the workout goes well.

Westbrook added further confirmation, posting a picture of TCO Performance Center to his Snapchat account on Friday afternoon.

Westbrook was a fourth-round pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2017 NFL Draft thanks to his ability as a deep threat. In his first three seasons, Westbrook made 159 catches for 1,716 yards and nine touchdowns but tore his ACL in Week 2 and missed the final 14 games in 2020.

Still, Westbrook would add value to the Vikings' depth chart to challenge Chad Beebe and rookie Ihmir Smith-Marsette. Westbrook also has the ability to return punts, averaging 9.8 yards per return during his career.
