PFW correspondent and South Florida Sun-Sentinel beat writer Omar Kelly reported that Dolphins WR Greg Camarillo has been traded to the Vikings. Other reports indicate Miami will receive CB Benny Sapp, a seventh-year veteran, in return.

Camarillo had 50 receptions for 552 yards in 2009 for Miami and was expected to be involved in the team's rotation at receiver, although WR Brian Hartline had been picked to replace him in the starting lineup.

The Vikings were in desperate need of help after losing WR Sidney Rice for the first half of the season when Rice underwent hip surgery. Reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year WR Percy Harvin has battled severe migraines this offseason. The Vikings did sign veteran WR Javon Walker on Tuesday.

Camarillo has been battling a groin injury during the preseason, but he'll see a decent share of reps in a depleted Vikings receiving corps.
