Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ receiver Dalton Schoen has worked out for the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals, per source. The workouts took place on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.

The 26-year-old was named the league’s Most Outstanding Rookie in 2022 after making 70 receptions for 1,441 yards and 16 touchdowns, averaging 20.6 yards per catch. He was the first rookie to lead the league in receiving yards since 2000 and the first player to lead the league in receiving yards and average yards per catch since 2002.

The six-foot-one, 218-pound target was also a factor in the West Final and Grey Cup, making six catches for 114 yards and one touchdown.

Schoen is under contract with Winnipeg for 2023 but is permitted to pursue opportunities south of the border via the league’s NFL window. He is currently scheduled to become a CFL free agent in February 2024.

The native of Overland Park, Kan. was a walk-on at Kansas State University where he made 92 receptions for 1,569 yards and nine touchdowns. He signed with the Los Angeles Chargers after going unselected in the 2020 NFL Draft and has also been a member of the Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Commanders, though he has yet to dress for a regular season NFL game.

Per source, Schoen has a number of other workouts scheduled with NFL teams before and after the new year.
