Jarius Wright: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Wright has been working as the slot receiver between Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson during training camp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "The best things that Jarius did were when he was in the slot," coach Mike Zimmer said. "We keep working him outside, but we know he has big value for us in the slot as well."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Wright is firmly stuck as the no. 4 receiver on the Vikings' depth chart, and even with an improved offensive outlook in 2014 thanks to Norv Turner and competent quarterbacking from Matt Cassel and/or first round pick Teddy Bridgewater, that's not a role likely to generate a lot of targets.

2013

Wright posted 22 receptions for 310 yards and two touchdowns in seven games as a rookie last season. He is expected to serve as the Vikings' fourth receiver in 2013.

2012

Wright, a fourth-round 2012 draft pick, will likely be a reserve receiver and may not get many snaps on offense this season. However, he could emerge with a significant special teams role as either a punt or kickoff returner.
