Recently, the Minnesota Vikings added some wide receiver depth by signing Kendall Wright. He's now joining Kirk Cousins in the Minnesota offense.
Being able to catch balls from Cousins is one thing, but it looks like another QB helped Minnesota here.
Wright made it clear that Robert Griffin III played a role in his decision to sign with the Vikings.
Kendall Wright, who played at Baylor with Robert Griffin III, said he heard plenty of good things about Kirk Cousins from Griffin. "[Cousins] was a big part of the decision," Wright said. "I've played with a lot of QBs. I've never played with one of Kirk Cousins' caliber."— Ben Goessling (@GoesslingStrib) April 2, 2018
According to Wright, RGIII told him a lot of good things about the new Minnesota signal caller.
Of course, there are a lot of ties here. Griffin III and Wright were teammates in college at Baylor. Then, at one point, RGIII was the starter for the Washington Redskins with Kirk Cousins was his backup.
Later on, the Redskins chose Cousins as their guy over Griffin III, and as a result they released him.
Here we are now with RGIII out of the league and Cousins in Minnesota with the Vikings.

Even though Cousins essentially was the reason RGIII was cut by the Redskins (because he's better than him), he still had nothing but nice things to say about him, according to Wright.
Thanks for the help here, RGIII. Wright sure is a nice addition for Minnesota.
