Minnesota Vikings Release Cullen Loeffler

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

The battle for the long snapper position for the Minnesota Vikings is, apparently, over.

The team has released Cullen Loeffler, per a story on their website and this tweet that they sent out a little while ago.

Loeffler was the longest-tenured member of the team, having been a member of the Vikings since 2004. Now that title belongs to defensive end Brian Robison and linebacker Chad Greenway, both of whom have been with the team since 2006.

This means that the long snapping duties officially belong to third-year man Kevin McDermott. McDermott, who was a teammate of punter Jeff Locke at UCLA, had been splitting the long snapping job with Loeffler during the team's first three preseason contests. He started his career with the San Francisco 49ers, and has also spent time with the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens during his career.

One of the few unsettled positions on the Vikings roster has been settled, folks. Best of luck to Cullen Loeffler going forward in whatever he may choose to pursue.
