Vikings Mailbag Week 1 What Josh Doctson can bring and more on WRs

The Minnesota Vikings have released Canadian offensive lineman Brett Jones.

The Vikings made official the signing of receiver Josh Doctson on Tuesday.

The Minnesota Vikings are adding a familiar set of hands for Kirk Cousins. Ironically, the Vikings cut their 2016 first-round wideout Laquon Treadwell over the weekend. He has failed to live up to expectations since then.

Doctson was the No. 22 pick in the 2016 first-round pick out of TCU, but has been somewhat of a disappointment in his first three seasons in the league, although not on the same level as Treadwell. His 2018 season was his best in terms of receptions and yardage, with 44 catches for 532 yards, while he caught six touchdowns in 2017.

Doctson will join Chad Beebe and rookie Olabisi Johnson at the wide receiver spots in Minnesota, backing up standouts Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

MIN is on #TeamEstablishTheRun so hard that they only kept four WRs on their 53-man roster.

This is a pretty solid low-risk, high-reward signing for the Vikes.

Doctson is largely a jump-ball receiver who has.
