Spoiler Alert: Barring injury (or murder charges), Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson are guaranteed spots on the opening day roster for the Vikings. Jerome Simpson and Jarius Wright may not have the same amount of security as those two guys, as the Vikings have invested considerably less in them, but they also seem close to “locks” for opening day.
That leaves a whopping eight wide outs vying for a remaining one, or maybe two, roster spots. Watching the depth chart at receiver shake out as training camp progresses should be quite entertaining. Whether it is evaluating Joe Webb’s chances in his new(ish) position, tracking Greg Childs and his progress in his comeback attempt, following local boy Adam Thielen, or simply waiting for someone to unexpectedly emerge, the battle for those last spots will provide plenty of intrigue.
So, I want to hear from you. How will this all end up? The poll below allows for you to select as many receivers as you like. Check the box if you think the player will survive through the final roster cuts. Keep in mind, however, the Vikings are likely only going to keep five or six wide outs.
