The Minnesota Vikings must be interested in finding a partner for Teddy Bridgewater, because they are bringing in a significant group of receivers in April. According to Vikings beat writer Darren Wolfson, Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell, TCU WR Josh Doctson and Minnesota WR KJ Maye will be visiting Minneapolis April 5 and 6.
The Vikings hold the 23rd overall pick in the first round, and Treadwell and Doctson are both widely considered to be first round talents. Perhaps this signifies an intention to taking the training wheels of Bridgewater and open up the passing game in 2016?
Maye, who played his college ball in the same stadium the Vikings used while getting ready to move into their new home, features primarily as a slot receiver. Thus, he is a bit less heralded than the other two that will be joining him in April.
The Vikings lost in the Wild Card round of the NFC Playoffs last season to the Seattle Seahawks and relied heavily on their ground game throughout the season. Adrian Peterson is over 30-year-old now, and while he is still effective as ever, it may be time to diversify the offense.
