Still only 28, Wright is coming off a decent season with the Bears (59-614-1) and has a 1,079-yard season to his credit (2013). He can play the slot or outside, so he should be a nice replacement for Jarius Wright.
Former Vikings WR Jarius Wright has inked a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers worth up to $3.5 million and it includes a $2 million signing bonus.
Mainly used as Minnesota's No. 3 receiver, Wright will likely fill a similar role in Carolina. He will be reunited with his former Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner. His best season as a pro came in 2014, when he caught 42 passes for 588 yards.
Every day, Michael Floyd made three or four plays in training camp that opened your eyes. His physical presence, sure hands and ability to create separation are impressive. Often times, a Vikings defensive back was in perfect position to knock down a pass heading Floyd’s way, but the veteran would leave his feet, extend his arms and pluck the ball from the air before the defender could swat it away. Floyd made catches in traffic, deep down the field, in the red zone and along the sideline day after day.
Patterson was dealing with a concussion but was expected to play in a nice matchup against the Bears. He's coming off a 7-67-1 line against the Eagles and has TDs in back to back games entering this week.
