Minnesota Vikings Rookie WR Jarius Wright Expected To Play Multiple Roles, Excited For The Opportunity

The Minnesota Vikings plan to use rookie wide receiver Jarius Wright in a variety of roles this season. Wright talked a little about his early experiences with the team in spring minicamp on Friday at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere event in Los Angeles.

"We just talked about me playing a little bit both inside and outside receiver," Wright said. "Conversations with the coahces have gone good and I think they think highly of me."

Wright joins an offense with a handful of lightening quick playmakers, and he sounded excited about the chance to play alongside the likes of Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson.

"From a football standpoint, I was very happy," Wright said of being drafted by the Vikings. "I've always looked up to a guy like Percy Harvin and the chance to get to play with a guy like that. Also, Adrian Peterson, Chrisitian Ponder and the chance to play besides guys like these is like a dream come true."
