"Jarius has been a key member of our offense since we drafted him in 2012 and we felt it was necessary to secure his future with our organization," Vikings GM Rick Spielman said in a statement. "His commitment to this team, hard work and leadership in the wide receiver room are several of the intangibles that he brings to our club on a daily basis and we're excited for his future with the Vikings."
Wright, who was drafted in the fourth round in 2012, had his best season last year. The wideout had career highs in starts (7), receptions (42) and receiving yards (588).
During Bridgewater's hot December finish, Wright emerged as a reliable target who can move the chains.
The Arkansas product had his best game against the Jets in Week 14, with 123 receiving yards and the game-winning 87-yard touchdown in overtime.
