Looks like the Vikings weren’t tempted to stand pat after losing WR Sidney Rice for at least half the season to hip surgery. Instead, they’ve made a bold move today.

According to Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have traded WR Greg Camarillo to Minnesota.

In the past two years, the possession receiver has started all 27 games he’s played and he’s combined for 105 catches and two touchdowns. Without Rice and potentially Percy Harvin (migraines) around for the time being, Camarillo instantly becomes the second best receiver on the team, behind Bernard Berrian.

"Mixed emotions,” Camarillo texted to Darlington. “Great opportunity, but this is home. These teammates are my brothers."

Check back here for details as they become available.

UPDATE (1:15 p.m.): Benny Sapp's agent, Andy Simms, confirms on his Twitter page that Sapp is the one who will be sent to Miami in exchange for Camarillo.

UPDATE (1:54 p.m.): According to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Harvin returned to practice today for the first time since collapsing and spending the night in the hospital.

FreddyAces,

Sapp started 7 games during the regular season, but also both playoff games for the Vikings.  He was the starting CB in the playoff game against Dallas, in which the Vikings defense held the Cowboys to 3 points.  As a Packers fan, I was hopeful of being able to exploit Sapp, who was starting his second game when Geen Bay came to town, but he played well.  As for the zero interceptions, my opinion is that interceptions are a poor stat to keep on CBs.  Champ Bailey had 3 interceptions last year.  Dunta Robinson had zero. 

One of the Vikings fans here (jlee) is glad to see Sapp go because he takes too many stupid pentalties.  It's funny, because I heard that exact same sentiment from an Eagles fan I know when the Eagles traded Al Harris to the Packers. 

My feeling is that the Vikings are getting the better end of the deal because Camarillo has more upside, but I will also observe that it is easier to find a good receivers than good CBs.

So this is a BOLD move??? Trading Jerad Allen for Brandon Marshall would of been a bold move, this is just "a move".

Yeah you lucked out last season by having to face our backup T's.  Good luck trying to get 14 sacks in two games in 2010, you'll be lucky to get 6.

Ahh...Despiration is a stinky cologne...A stupid comment from another drunken Packer fan. Why don't you put the keyboard away and tap another cold one?
