Who has a chance to be the Minnesota Vikings’ third receiver in 2018?
By Adam Patrick
Signed by the Vikings this offseason, Wright is coming off a 2017 season where he lead the Chicago Bears in catches and receiving yards. Selected by the Tennessee Titans in the first-round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Minnesota is the receiver’s third different team in the last three years.
Although Wright has not really lived up to the expectations that come with being a first-round draft pick, his production has still been solid during his career. Since entering the league in 2012, the Vikings’ new receiver has averaged 56 catches, over 600 receiving yards, and three touchdowns per season.
Wright will also get to play with a legitimate quarterback in Minnesota with Kirk Cousins now starting under center. Over the last few years, the receiver has had to try and be productive with guys like Mitchell Trubisky, Matt Cassel, Zach Mettenberger, Charlie Whitehurst, Jake Locker, and Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing him passes.
