Jarius Wright News
Updating a previous report, free-agent wide receiver Jarius Wright is signing a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. He'll receive a $2 million signing bonus in the first year, and the deal also contains up to $3.5 million in incentives. He didn't do much in his time with Minnesota and was buried on the depth chart, but he'll be reuniting with offensive coordinator Norv Turner and is expected to be the primary slot receiver for Carolina. However, fantasy owners can probably do much better with a late-round flier.
The Carolina Panthers are expected to sign free-agent wide receiver Jarius Wright, according to a source. Wright has experience with Carolina offensive coordinator Norv Turner from their time together in Minnesota, and Wright would be expected to serve as the team's new slot receiver. It's a much more intriguing spot for Wright in an offense that should look to push the ball downfield, but he had just 18 catches for 198 yards and two touchdowns in 2017 and has only 10 scores in his seven years in the NFL. Wright can be left to the waiver wire in most leagues, but keep an eye on his role in this offense.
The Minnesota Vikings released wide receiver Jarius Wright after he restructured his deal last year. Wright had 18 catches for 198 yards and two touchdowns in his final season with the Vikings in 2017. He never had more than 42 catches, 588 yards or three scores in his six years with the Vikes. Wright is unlikely to have a robust market for his services.
Jarius Wright caught three passes for 54 yards as the Vikings beat the Ravens 24-9. Wright made the biggest splash in the passing game, catching a 30-yard pass in an otherwise run-dominant offensive performance. Wright is seeing opportunities due to the injury to receiver Stefon Diggs and made the most of it this week. Diggs is close to returning so Wright should not be considered a streamable option at this time.
