Minnesota Vikings Release Leon Mackey, DuJuan Harris

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Two more players have been released by the Minnesota Vikings, as the team gets closer to the 53-man roster limit.

The team has released defensive end Leon Mackey. He went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Texas Tech University, and actually spent 2014 in the Arena Football League. He signed with the Vikings in January. It doesn't sound like he's a strong candidate for the practice squad.

The other release the team has announced is that of running back DuJuan Harris. Harris spent a couple of years with the Green Bay Packers, and really didn't do a whole lot for the Vikings this offseason. He had 81 yards rushing on 25 carries, and four catches for 21 yards.

With these two releases, the Vikings are now down to 71 players. There are going to be plenty more cuts coming between now and 3:00 PM Central on Saturday. You can track all of the moves right here with our stream on this year's roster cuts.
