Vikings WR Jarius Wright calls anyone who says he will be cut an ‘idiot’
The Vikings wide receiver barely played last season. Still, he believes it’s nonsense to speculate he might get cut.
“I’m tired of hearing about ‘Will Jarius Wright make the 53-man roster?’ ‘’ Wright said on the first full-squad day of training camp at Minnesota State Mankato. “So it’s just getting old now. I’ve been the same player since I got here (in 2012). I continue to make plays, and if you think I’m a slouch, then you don’t watch football, and so that makes you an idiot.’’
Last season, though, Wright got into just eight games and caught just 11 passes for 67 yards.
Wright said Zimmer never has given him a reason why he didn’t play last season. Told what Zimmer said about Diggs, Wright said he still should have played more.
“Regardless of who is the slot, you make room for your playmakers,’’ Wright said.
I think he explained himself well with the bolded.
