One of my favorite Vikings of the last decade, Jermaine Wiggins had 50 career receptions to his name in four NFL seasons before signing with the Purple in 2004.  He certainly didn't have the physique of a playmaker -- he was built more like an offensive lineman than a tight end.  For that matter, he was built more like a potato on toothpicks.  Nevertheless, he made a huge impact with a team-leading 71 receptions during his first year in Minnesota.  He added 69 more catches in 2005, leading the team in receiving for the second time in two years.  He was great with the media, too, showcasing a personality as big as his torso.  That has served him well since retirement, as he's become a popular radio personality in his native Boston.
