During a recent interview with FanSided's "Stacking The Box" podcast, K.J. Osborn of the Minnesota Vikings revealed his Mount Rushmore of NFL wide receivers.

Ever since their very first season as a franchise in 1961, the Minnesota Vikings have had some of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history suit up in their purple and gold uniform.

Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn is someone who is very familiar with the organization's rich history of pass-catchers, which became even more evident in a recent interview.

Live from Radio Row in Las Vegas, Osborn sat down with FanSided's "Stacking The Box" podcast on Thursday, and he was asked who he believes should be on the Mount Rushmore of all-time NFL wide receivers.

The Minnesota receiver quickly listed Jerry Rice and Vikings legend Randy Moss, and then after a few seconds, he went with Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson to round out his Mount Rushmore.

Solid choices all-around, especially the Moss pick, and to bring an even bigger smile to the faces of Vikings fans, Osborn even said that the final spot on his Mount Rushmore could even be swapped out for someone like Minnesota Hall of Famer Cris Carter.

Osborn has spent the last four years as a member of the Vikings, but in a few weeks, he will become a free agent for the first time in his career, meaning his tenure in Minnesota might be coming to an end.

During his appearance on the "Stacking The Box" podcast, the former 2020 fifth-round pick described how he's preparing for one of the biggest offseasons of his NFL career.

"There's a lot of priorities that I have laid out with my team, we're discussing it. I'm excited for it. First time going through it, so I'm taking it a day at a time. But when that time comes, I'll be ready."

It will be interesting to see where Osborn might end up this season. Some might want him to remain with the Vikings, but since he's still only 26-years-old, he might want to land with a team that gives him a better chance to be at the top of their wide receiver depth chart.

We will all just have to wait and see what happens when free agency begins this March.
