Last week, free-agent receiver Eric Moulds chatted with longtime friend and Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams about a possible reunion.
After playing with Moulds for eight seasons in Buffalo, Williams hopes his friend can provide some much-needed depth at receiver.
"I think he would add to the team," Williams said. "I think he would help the other receivers out. He trains hard.
"I'm hoping it happens," Williams said. "If we get him, it would take pressure off of everybody. We wouldn't need to draft a receiver."
Williams said Vikings officials haven't sought his opinion on Moulds. But Williams said Moulds, a 12-year veteran, is a hard worker with plenty of skills.
His most recent 1,000-yard season was in 2004, and Moulds had only modest production in 2005 and 2006.
"He ain't had no quarterbacks," Williams said.
After being released by the Houston Texans, Moulds has drawn only lukewarm interest from a couple of teams.
It would seem that having a guy with some leadership skills and maybe a little left in the tank would be helpful. But I'm not sure Moulds is "kickassian" enough for Childress.
