  • Kendall Wright: Works out for New England
    By RotoWire Staff

    Wright was one of several skill-position players that worked out for the Patriots on Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. In addition to Wright, Weiss relays that fellow wideout Brandon Reilly, running backs Kenjon Barner and Matthew Dayes and fullback Aaron Ripkowski were among the players recently released from training camps that were in attendance for tryouts with New England. The extent of the Patriots' interest in Wright isn't fully known, but he could make for a decent stopgap solution in the slot while the team waits for Julian Edelman's four-game suspension to lapse. As of Thursday, the Patriots list only five wideouts on the active roster in Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarelle Patterson, Chad Hansen and Matthew Slater, with Slater's usage expected to come almost exclusively on special teams.

  • Kendall Wright: Cut loose by Vikings
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Vikings released Wright on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. With Laquon Treadwell tapping into the talent this preseason that made him a first-round pick in 2016, the Vikings were able to utilize Adam Thielen more in the slot, where Wright almost exclusively operates. As a result, Wright was expendable as the Vikings are expected to keep only five wide receivers on the initial 53-man roster. Considering Wright's pro experience and pedigree as a first-rounder himself, he should find a willing employer in short order.

  • Wright did not have a reception and was targeted just once in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville. It's possible the Vikings could cut Wright, ESPN 1500 AM Twin Cities reports. Wright had just one reception for nine yards in the first preseason game and there's been little buzz about his role in training camp. He would appear to have a shot to win the No. 3 receiver role given his success in the slot last season (80.4 percent catch rate), but there's been little positive news about his job battle with Laquon Treadwell so far.

  • Vikings' Kendall Wright: Just one reception Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Wright had just one reception for nine yards in Saturday's preseason win at Denver. Wright got playing time with the second-team offense and didn't show much despite playing 28 snaps. He entered training camp as the favorite for the third receiver role, but a recent report said he's at risk of being a healthy scratch on game days due to his lack of special teams play. However, the No. 3 WR role looks wide open at this point, as neither Wright nor Laquon Treadwell showed much in Saturday's preseason game.

  • Laquon Treadwell took snaps as the third receiver with the first-team offense in Tuesday's OTAs, with Wright working with the second-team offense, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. It's likely too early to read much into the competition for the No. 3 receiver role, but this may indicate it's not a forgone concussion that Wright will emerge as the winner. Wright hasn't quite lived up to his status as the 20th overall selection from the 2012 draft, but he's at least proven to be an effective slot man in three-wide formations. Meanwhile, Treadwell has had little production with just 20 receptions for 200 yards in 16 games last season. Wright has some upside if he wins a sizeable role as his slot receiver skills could be a nice match for Kirk Cousin's exceptional intermediate passing game.
