The Vikings have signed WR Kendall Wright

He made it known on Twitter.

Kendall Wright has signed with the Minnesota Vikings, and he made it know when he tweeted a simple "SKOL" on Friday. 

Wright brings quality depth to Minnesota's receiving corp, whre he'll likely slot in as the third receiver behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, both of whom have already welcomed him to Minnesota. 

Wright was a first-round pick by the Tennessee Titans in 2012. He played five seasons there before joining the Bears last season, where he was rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky's No. 1 target en route to 59 catches for 619 yards and a touchdown.

His career numbers: 339 catches for 3,858 yards and 19 touchdowns, and he's done that catching passes on teams that haven't had great passing attacks. 

Kirk Cousins now has a rather deep roster of targets to throw to, including Diggs, Thielen, Wright, tight end Kyle Rudolph and running back Dalvin Cook.
