The Minnesota Vikings have signed speedy wide receiver Terrell Sinkfield, a native of the Twin Cities area coming off a breakout year in the Canadian Football League.
Sinkfield signed a reserve/future contract on Saturday, meaning he'll be on the roster for offseason practices. Sinkfield played at Hopkins High School and Northern Iowa, where he was listed at 6-foot-1 and 192 pounds. He made headlines three years ago by running a reported 40-yard dash time of 4.19 seconds for NFL scouts at the University of Minnesota's pro day workout.
Sinkfield spent time in camps of the Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills and New York Giants, but he never stuck. Now 25, Sinkfield had 69 receptions for 1,030 yards for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the CFL in 2015.
