Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald is reporting that former Georgia Bulldog free agent rookie RB Caleb King has signed with the Vikings. He apparently got several offers.
At first glance, it may seem like a crowded backfield with Adrian Peterson, Lorenzo Booker and Toby Gerhart. That said, it’s possible Gerhart does more of a fullback role this year. Booker could also be used on the field at the same time as one of the other running backs as he can go out wide.
King was found academically ineligible to return to Georgia on July 8th.
