Vikings receiver Troy Williamson will have a new home in 2008. The Vikings have agreed to trade him to Jacksonville for a second-day pick.

Scout.com has confirmed that the Vikings have agreed in principle on a deal that would send wide receiver Troy Williamson to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a second-day pick.

A second-day pick is technically the third through seventh rounds now.  Some reports are suggesting a conditional fifth-round pick that could become a fourth-round pick.  Yet others are just saying a late-round pick.

The trade cannot become official, however, until the start of the league year Thursday at 11 p.m. CST.

The move reunites Williamson with the coach in charge when he was drafted by the Vikings at No. 7 overall in 2005, Mike Tice, who is an assistant coach with the Jaguars now. According to Scout.com's Adam Caplan, Williamson had veto rights on any trade.

Williamson is due to make $910,000 in base salary in 2008 and $1.435 million in 2009, the final year of his contract.
