Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Vikings receiver Troy Williamson, who had 11 drops in 2006, has some type of a vision problem that has contributed to his inability to catch the ball.
"It's been frustrating for Troy, and his family," agent David Canter told Jensen. "Now that we know there was something from a visual standpoint, this is like a light bulb coming on for all of us concerned about why he was having difficulty making some catches."
The specific nature of the problem has not been identified. Nike reportedly checked his hand-eye coordination, whether one eye is stronger than the other, his ability to see objects in different types of lighting, and his ability to track balls thrown at him from various angles.
It's not known whether Nike checked to see whether Williamson actually has butter on his fingers.
Williamson was selected with the seventh overall pick that the Vikings received as part of the Randy Moss trade. The two-year player's speed is critical to the West Coast offense, since a legitimate deep threat will open up a variety of underneath routes.
By demonstrating an ability to actually catch the ball on a consistent basis, the chances of Williamson actually being covered when he runs a "go" route will be increased.
