Another year, another failed first-time recipient from the 2012 Vikings signed draft.
Last year the Vikings designed Michael Floyd, the 13th overall fellow in 2012, added by the Cardinals and traded to the Patriots during his election year. This year, the Vikings added Kendall Wright .
Wright was the 20th choice in 2012 and spent five years with the Titans before joining the Bears last year. On an exhausted reception corps, Wright caught 59 passes for 614 yards and a touchdown in 16 appearances with four starts.
In 2013 Wright caught 94 passes and generated 1,079 yards. He has 339 career recordings, for 3,858 career courts.
Wright worked primarily out of the slot for the Bears, and the Vikings have recently dumped veteran slot receiver Jarius Wright. So the move makes sense.
The Vikings have many question marks on the reception low street behind the starters Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. Laquon Treadwell, a first round in 2016, was a bust of two seasons. The rest of the current options are no-names and edge players.
