Jarius Wright building to be more than just a slot receiver

By akrammer@1500espn.com

MANKATO, Minn. – Jarius Wright head faked to his right and cut hard left across Richard Sherman’s body en route to a 38-yard touchdown, his first of last season.

Wright, listed at 5-foot-10, has predominantly been thought of as the Minnesota Vikings main slot receiver, with Greg Jennings pegged to be the flanker, or ‘Z’ receiver, before last season.

But Jennings ran about 65 percent of his routes from the slot, per ProFootballFocus.com, as Wright was featured as the flanker on the game-tying touchdown catch against the vaunted Seattle Seahawks secondary.
