Minnesota Vikings Announce 13 Roster Cuts

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The deadline for the Minnesota Vikings to get their roster from 90 players down to 75 is a little more than 24 hours away, and the team has announced 13 cuts from the roster.

The players that have gotten a visit from the Turk are as follows:

WR LaMark Brown
WR Erik Highsmith
OG Tyler Holmes
DE Marquis Jackson
LB Stanford Keglar
DB Greg McCoy
WR Chris Summers
QB James Vandenberg
RB Jerodis Williams
DB Roderick Williams

Lawrence Jackson is the only real surprise here, from what I can see. I think that folks were expecting him to have a real chance to be part of the defensive line rotation, but he apparently didn't make a big enough impression on the coaching staff.

I know a lot of people were rooting for Bradley Randle to make the team, but it doesn't appear that it's in the cards. . .not for the time being, at least. You'd think he'd have a chance to make the practice squad.

The cut for getting down to 53 players is August 31, which is this coming Saturday, and just two days after the pre-season finale at the Metrodome against the Tennessee Titans.
