Another WR stepping up

Although Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen will put up their usual big numbers next season, the Vikings still need someone that can take some of the load from the Pro Bowl duo on occasions.

They lacked a true third option at wide receiver in 2020 and if this problem can be rectified next time around, it will do their chances of making a return to the postseason the world of good.

The likes of Chad Beebe and Bisi Johnson are candidates for the role, with the progression of rookie Ihmir Smith-Marsette something else to keep a close eye on during training camp.

It doesn’t matter who it is, just so long as the Vikings can count on more dependability from their rotational pieces during a pivotal campaign for the organization.
