UPDATE (3:13 PM Central) - Minnesota has released K Rhys Lloyd. Guess that last pre-season game wasn't enough to get him on the roster.
UPDATE (3:03 PM Central) - Minnesota has released OL Adrian Battles. Still plenty of cuts to go before 5 PM Central time.
UPDATE (3:00 PM Central) - The Vikings have cut ties with WR Logan Payne and DE Mike Mongtgomery.
UPDATE (2:30 PM Central) - Pro Football Talk is reporting that WR Freddie Brown is on his way out of town.
UPDATE (2:25 PM Central) - The Vikings are now up to eight cuts on the day. Receiving visits from the turk thus far have been FB Ryan D'Imperio, DT Tremaine Johnson, TE Garrett Mills, OT Chris Clark, RB Ian Johnson, G Thomas Austin, and CB Marcus Sherels.
UPDATE (12:25 PM Central) - We have our first cut of the day, as the Vikings have released CB DeAndre Wright.
The Vikings have to be down to the NFL-mandated maximum roster size of 53 in approximately 24 hours or so. While some teams have already started wheeling and dealing. . .the Dallas Cowboys sending Patrick Crayton to the San Diego Chargers, for example. . .we haven't heard anything out of Winter Park quite yet.
We all know that the Vikings have some roster issues to resolve. . .the backup quarterback situation, where I personally predict that Sage Rosenfels is the odd man out and will (hopefully) get traded to someone rather than getting cut.
The New York Giants only have two QBs on the roster right now. I'm not sayin'. . .I'm just sayin' is all.
It's also going to be interested to see if we trade some of the ridiculous amount of depth we have on our defensive line for some secondary help. If we don't, some team is going to get an upgrade on their front four free of charge sometime tomorrow.
But we can use this thread for any and all roster speculation, breaking news, and stuff like that about the Vikings' impending roster moves. Have at it, ladies and gentlemen!
