The Minnesota Vikings announced on Saturday that they signed Minnetonka, Minn. native Terrell Sinkfield to a reserve/future contract. The wide receiver had most recently spent time in the Canadian Football League playing for the Toronto Argonauts and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
This is not Sinkfield’s first time on an NFL roster. He went undrafted after finishing up his career at Northern Iowa and then spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills and then the New York Giants for the 2013 preseason.
The speedy receiver is best known for the 40-yard dash he ran at the University of Minnesota’s pro day in 2013 where he was clocked at 4.19 seconds. That time did draw some criticism, however, because it was clocked by hand.
The 6-foot-1 receiver recorded 69 receptions for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 while also producing 132 rushing yards on 28 carries. He was also able to make an impact with his team in the return game.
He will have to fight for a roster spot, but there is no doubt that he posses the speed to become a downfield threat. The questions now become how refined his game is and how quickly he can learn NFL techniques.
