  1. We Packers fans wish these Vikings would just stop now. They beat us up last year in two games and now they’re whipping us in free agency.

  2. After losing J. Wright, signing K. Wright seems like the wright thing to do… 2 Wrights don’t make a wrong…. I’m here all night, fellas!

  3. Great inside receiver, terrible outside receiver. Should fit in perfectly with the Vikings as the #3.

  4. I will wait to see but i see that Jarius & Kendall ate about the same size but J is faster. On the surface i am trying to understand but again we’ll see.

    Only a Viking fan would say this. Congrats on winning free agency. Hopefully this signing will prevent another terrible playoff embarrassment for you.

  6. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention, but I thought Thielen and Treadwell played inside more – isn’t the WR type they need more of a downfield speed outside guy? Then again, I do have a short attention span . . .

  7. But why let Jarius Wright go in the first place if you’re bringing in other receivers? I don’t think Jarius was making all that much money comparatively. All he did was work his tail off to make the team every year and haul in amazing third-down catches.

  8. I’d rather have him in the 3 receiver role than Dreadwell…I mean Treadwell. Otherwise why not just use Michael Floyd in that role. I think they still have him.

  9. I can understand the Viking’s interest in Kendall Wright, an FA WR from the Bears, it worked so well the last time. I’m not exactly saying Benard Berriman stole the Viking’s money but for $16 million guaranteed and $42 million overall, the Vikings didn’t get their money’s worth so why not try again? The law of averages are in their favor.

    Says the fan of the team who was taken BIGTIME by Martellus Bennett last season.

  11. It used to be that Minnesota was where old Bears receivers went to die. Off the top of my head, here are the former Bears wide receivers that played for the Vikings back in the day:

    D’Wayne Bates
    Marcus Robinson
    Bobby Wade
    Bernard Berrian
    Devin Aromashodu

    I’m not sure I have fond memories of those days. Maybe we should pass on Mr. Wright.

    Yes terrible and embarrassing but at least the Vikings made it to the play-offs……with a 3rd string QB! What’s The Green Bay Rodgers excuse?
