EDEN PRAIRIE — The Minnesota Vikings have signed wide receiver A.J. Love, bringing their roster to the 90-player limit.

Love was signed on Tuesday, the day after they added cornerback Corey Gatewood. Both players were undrafted, Love out of South Florida and Gatewood from Stanford.

Love gives the Vikings 12 wide receivers on the roster, including four rookies. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Love tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in South Florida’s spring game and sat out the entire 2010 season. He was granted a medical redshirt and sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and caught nine passes for 122 yards and a touchdown for the Bulls last season.

Love tore the ACL in his left knee in 2008 but made it back in time to play in 2009.
