Dolphins Trade WR Greg Camarillo to the Vikings

Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald reports the Miami Dolphins are trading veteran wide receiver Greg Camarillo to the Minnesota Vikings.

According to multiple reports, the Dolphins received veteran cornerback Benny Sapp in return for Camarillo.

"Mixed emotions. Great opportunity, but this is home. These teammates are my brothers", Camarillo texted to Darlington.

Originally signed by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford in 2005, Camarillo has 113 receptions for 1,325 yards and 4 touchdowns since being claimed off waivers by the Dolphins at the start of the 2007 season.

Camarillo has posted back-to-back 50+ catch seasons, despite a knee injury limiting the 6-1, 190-pound wideout to 11 games in 2008.

The arrival of Brandon Marshall, and continued development of Brian Hartline and Davone Bess, made Camarillo an expendable member of the Dolphins' receiving corps. In Minnesota, Camarillo has a legitimate opportunity to be the #3 receiver while Sidney Rice recovers from hip surgery and Percy Harvin remains a question mark with migraine headaches.

Camarillo is signed through the 2011 season with base salaries of $1.3 million in 2010 and $1.7 million in 2011.
