Arceneaux, DeGeare, Hilliard Land On Their Feet

As the dust settles after last week's mass cuts, three Vikings who vied for roster spots right up to the final hours found new homes this week...

Emmanuel Arceneaux: Washington Redskins practice squad

Chris DeGeare: Tennessee Titans practice squad

Lex Hilliard: New England Patriots 53-man roster

With guys like Josh Morgan and Dezmond Briscoe making the Redskins six- or seven-deep at wide receiver, it's unlikely Arceneaux does enough to get promoted this season, barring mass injury of course. The 'Skins still boast Santana Moss as their go-to No. 1, brought in Pierre Garcon as the No. 2 and are excited about Leonard Hankerson, a second-year big body out of Miami (FL), despite a low output during the preseason (four catches, 32 yards in four games).

In all likelihood, should DeGeare make the 53-man at any point this season in Tennessee, he will sit behind former Vikings teammate Steve Hutchinson at guard. The front five for the Titans is rather unimpressive; the running game (Chris Johnson or no Chris Johnson) was a dismal 31st in the league last season. Pass protection was a high point, however, as they ranked 2nd behind only Buffalo in sacks allowed.

Hilliard looks to be a nice insurance plan for a running back corps prone to injury in New England. He'll be the 4th RB on the roster behind starter Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen and everything-guy Danny Woodhead. But Josh McDaniels loves having a fullback to work with. Like many with Hilliard's body type, he can be dual-listed as a RB/FB. The Patriots are eyeing Kellen Winslow to add to their MOAR TIGHT ENDS movement, so look for Hilliard to possibly be demoted to the practice squad should such a move take place.
