Kendall Wright We’re getting word of another mildly surprising cut from the
Minnesota Vikings, and this one involves a veteran wide receiver.Per Tom
Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Minnesota Vikings will be releasing wide
receiver Kendall Wright, who was expected to compete for the #3 receiver
spot.Wright, a former first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, was signed by
the Vikings this offseason following a 2017 season that saw him lead the Chicago
Bears in receiving yardage. When he was signed, many. . .myself included. .
.assumed that he would be the team’s third wide receiver, but reports surfaced
during OTAs that he was struggling a bit, and he had a pretty rough Training
Camp as well.With that Womens George Iloka Jersey , the Vikings appear to have finalized their wide receiver corps. Joining the best 1-2 receiver duo in the NFL in Stefon
Diggs and Adam Thielen will be Laquon Treadwell, Brandon Zylstra, and Stacy
Coley.We still have a few more Vikings’ moves that we’re waiting on before the
53-man roster deadline, so make sure you’re tracking all of the moves
