After the Vikings released Jarius Wright in mid-March, most Vikings fans wondered what they would do for depth behind their top two wide receivers, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

The Vikings opened by signing WR Kendall Wright on the cheap. Now they have announced another wide receiver signing, this time bringing in former Giants wide receiver Tavarres King.

King is in his sixth season in the NFL, with the Vikings representing his fifth different team, and his career stats with the first four teams aren’t anything to write home about.

That said, he did have a “career year” last season, where he caught 18 passes on 37 targets for 240 yards and three touchdowns and adding two rushing attempts for three yards.

Nick Olson has more on the new Minnesota wide receiver.

And, more importantly, it looks as though King is already starting to fit in with his new team.
