Former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright recently had quite the interesting comment on his Twitter account.

There is no debate when it comes to the top of the wide receiver depth chart for the Minnesota Vikings. Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen are the top two pass-catchers on the Vikings’ roster and they’re arguably the best receiving duo in the entire NFL.

Behind these two on Minnesota wide receiver depth chart, however, there are a bunch of question marks. Chad Beebe seems like he’s the leading candidate to be the Vikings No. 3 receiver next season and that’s not about to strike fear into any opposing defenses.

Minnesota hasn’t really had a solid No. 3 receiver in their offense since Jarius Wright was on the roster. Interestingly enough, Wright sounds like he wouldn’t mind having that role back.

Should the Minnesota Vikings be interested in bringing back Jarius Wright?

After the Vikings selected him in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Wright wound up remaining with the franchise until 2018. After his tenure with Minnesota, the veteran receiver went on to spend two years with the Carolina Panthers, and he hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game since Week 17 of the 2019 campaign.

Now 31-years-old, it doesn’t sound like Wright is interested in being done in the NFL anytime soon. In fact, a recent post on his Twitter account would seem to indicate that he would be open to a return to the Vikings.

This wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world for Minnesota to have since Wright has several years of experience with the organization and it’s not like he would cost a whole lot to bring in.

At the very least, the Vikings could bring him in for training camp this summer to see if he has enough left in the tank to help them next season.

The last time Wright appeared in Minnesota uniform was during the 2017 season. He only caught 18 passes that year, but 13 of them resulted in first downs.

He was someone the Vikings could turn to when they needed a play to be made. Should Minnesota see if Wright can win back his old role in the offense?
