Panthers' Jarius Wright: Plays key complementary role in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright brought in five of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' 31-24 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

The veteran receiver played a key role in the Panthers' passing attack with Greg Olsen (foot) out of action, posting the third-highest reception and receiving yardage totals on the afternoon. Wright has now seen 12 targets through his first two games, certainly an elevated figure for a wideout expected to fill a No. 4 role. He'll look to continue his productive start against the Bengals in Week 3.

Panthers' Jarius Wright: Hauls in three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright caught three of five targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 16-8 win over the Cowboys.

Wright featured on just under half of Carolina's offensive snaps, ranking third behind Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith among the team's receivers. That supported the notion that he'd begin the season ahead of rookie first-rounder D.J. Moore, but the fact Wright tied Funchess to lead the group in both catches and targets was somewhat surprising. Sure, his totals were modest, but Wright's familiarity with coordinator Norv Turner's scheme seems to be benefitting him early on.

Panthers' Jarius Wright: Long gain in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright caught his lone target for 28 yards in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Bills in the preseason opener.

Wright's catch-and-run set the Panthers up on the two-yard line on the team's second offensive series. That led to Carolina's opening touchdown, reflecting quite well on Wright's impact with the starters. Long an underrated chain-mover -- and the team's unofficial receptions leader through training camp, Bryan Strickland of Panthers.com reports -- Wright's stellar play thus far could land him the slot-receiving gig, but he'll need to maintain his performance level through the remaining exhibition slate.

Jarius Wright: Signing with Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is signing a two-year contract with the Panthers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Released by the Vikings on Friday, the 2012 fourth-round pick only needed three days to find a new home. He'll reunite with Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who held the same role in Minnesota from 2014 to 2016. Wright lost his long-time gig as the Vikings' No. 3 receiver in 2016, but he finally got it back for the 2017 playoffs, where he responded by catching six of 12 targets for 107 yards in two games. The 28-year-old likely will compete with Russell Shepard and Curtis Samuel (ankle) for slot work. while Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith figure to man the outside. The Panthers may still add more receiving help in the draft, as their wideout current group is a clear case of quantity over quality.

Jarius Wright: Let go by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright was released by the Vikings on Friday.

The move isn't overly surprising as Wright has seen a heavily reduced role the past two seasons, notching only 29 receptions for 265 yards and three touchdowns in 24 games. However, the 28-year-old played a more significant role for the Vikings in their two postseason games, which could spark some additional interest in free agency.
