Which Vikings receivers will make the team in 2017?

After failing to sign any free agent receivers before the draft, the Minnesota Vikings were able to land a quality wideout in Michael Floyd last Wednesday. By adding Floyd, the Vikings are suddenly deep at wideout. Very deep. Now the question becomes, who will make the team?

Here’s a quick look at the top receivers currently on the Vikings offseason roster:

He’s on Twitter at @Luke_Spinman, but if you’d like to read or listen to his work, check out Zone Coverage. This week, we picked Luke’s brain on a variety of topics, from Joe Mixon’s draft stock to the Vikings’ biggest needs heading into the climax of the offseason.

Free Agent WR Rod Streater

The Minnesota Vikings kept one of their own in Adam Thielen this offseason, and yet, wide receiver remains a position of need heading into 2017. Despite retaining the ever-underrated Thielen, the Vikings watched Cordarrelle Patterson and Charles Johnson skip town for greener pastures.

Earlier this week, head coach Mike Zimmer addressed the exodus and expressed his desire to add more talent at the position. “I do think we need some more receivers, yes,” Zimmer said, per Vikings.com. “I think it’d be important for us to get some guys that can stretch the field a little bit.”

One of those potential targets is Rod Streater, who Chris Tomasson reports is on Minnesota’s radar. Tomasson tweeted this afternoon the Vikings are “looking at Streater,” who spent the 2016 season with the San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks, Browns, Colts, and 49ers are also in the mix, per Tomasson.
