Vikings release receiver Jarius Wright

By Matthew Coller

The Minnesota Vikings have parted ways with wide receiver Jarius Wright, the team announced on Friday.

Wright’s role in the Vikings’ offense diminished over the past few seasons, dropping from 42 catches in 2014 down to 11 in 2016 and 18 last year.

However, he did become a weapon on third downs for Case Keenum, grabbing 13 of his 18 passes on third down, 10 of which became first downs. His playing time also increased in the playoffs.

The Vikings are making efforts to create cap space. On Thursday they restricted the deal for Latavius Murray. Wright’s release creates $2.1 million in space according to Over The Cap.

The post Vikings release receiver Jarius Wright appeared first on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
