Vikings sign ex-CFL wideout Arceneaux to three-year deal

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed former Canadian Football League wide receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux to a three-year contract.

Financial terms weren't disclosed Tuesday.

The 6-foot-2 Arceneaux caught 130 passes for 1,972 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons with the British Columbia Lions. He was undrafted out of Alcorn State in 2009, but he worked out for eight NFL teams in December after playing well for the Lions.

Arceneaux joins a Vikings receiving group in flux. Percy Harvin will be back, but Sidney Rice could become a free agent and Bernard Berrian struggled through an ineffective season. Veterans Greg Lewis and Hank Baskett produced little as well and might not return.
