The final cuts have been made, according to the folks at Vikings.com, and this is what your 53-man roster looks like as of right now.
A couple of knee-jerk thoughts. . .
-Five safeties, huh? I wasn't sure if Tyrell Johnson was going to make it, but there he is.
-For a team with as many questions on the offensive line as this team had, they're going awfully young there. . .Love, Fusco, Brown, and Olsen in while Chris DeGeare and Ryan Cook got bounced. (Not that DeGeare is old, but he was thought to have a chance to be the starter at right guard at the beginning of camp.) I'm not sure whether to be excited about this or to ask Donovan McNabb to make sure his insurance premiums are current.
-No fullback on this roster, but I'm guessing that Kleinsasser, Rudolph, and Reisner can serve as a flex option into the backfield. I thought that Adrian Peterson was generally better out of a one-back set anyway.
-Only five linebackers? Wow. . .really hope that nobody gets hurt, considering that the two guys after the starter (Onatolu and Dean) have pretty much zero experience at linebacker at the NFL level.
That's what I have for now. . .I'd do more, but I'm on Gopher duty over at SB Nation Minnesota, too, and the Gophers are within two points with eight minutes left.
What are your thoughts?
