By now, it’s been well documented that Dede Westbrook had a workout with the Vikings this week.

Not only that, but the free agent wide receiver is expected to sign with Minnesota today, according to a report.

But what about some other players who were trying out with the Vikings? Minnesota also worked out QB Jackson Erdmann and WR Tommylee Lewis this week.

Erdmann played high school football at Rosemount (Minn.) and went on to play collegiate football at St. John’s, the Division III college also in Minnesota. If the Viking like Erdmann, he could compete for a practice squad spot with Nate Stanley and Jake Browning.

Lewis is also an enticing tryout player. He signed with the Saints as an undrafted rookie out of Northern Illinois in 2016. From there, New Orleans has used him sparingly as a special teams player and depth option at wideout. With his experience at punt returner and wide receiver, Lewis may be too similar stylistically to Westbrook for the Vikings to rationalize signing both players.

As of now, it seems as though Minnesota has made its choice in Westbrook. That said, there is no credible reports of a deal being officially done and signed at the time this article was published.
