Vikings Ink Free Agent WR Kendall Wright

The Vikings on Friday came to terms with wide out Kendall Wright, who caught 59 passes for 614 yards a year ago for the Bears.

Wright hauled in a team-leading 59 receptions for 614 yards and one score, basically a lottery code that he can make the grabs, but doesn’t make the big plays, just 10.4 yards per catch. The former first-rounder played himself out of a job in Tennessee, but gives Minnesota, and new quarterback Kirk Cousins — an affordable pass-catcher who can operate out of the slot.

Hunting for depth after losing Jarius Wright to the Panthers, the Vikings spread an impressively wide net to unearth a player with the identical surname. Minnesota currently boasts one of the league’s top duos in Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, while hoping for a big third season from 2016 first-rounder Laquon Treadwell.

Wright put together a promising second season with the Titans in 2013, topping 1,000 yards and looking like a future star. He’s never come close since, however, looming as nothing more than a fallback option for those of you enthused by the concept of fantasy football.
