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:
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.
