We have another cut out of Winter Park, and this one isn't too much of a surprise.
Per numerous sources, the team has released wide receiver Ryan Whalen. The team signed Whalen on 2 August.
Whalen caught four passes in the preseason finale against the Tennessee Titans, racking up 65 yards, including a 27-yard reception. However, he has not caught a pass in the regular season in the NFL since 2012, and if he catches one any time soon, it doesn't appear that he'll do so in a Minnesota Vikings uniform. The Vikings just have too many other options at the wide receiver position at this point, and Whalen was a long shot at best.
That means the Vikings are now down to 66 players, meaning they have to make 13 more roster moves before 3:00 PM Central, which is approximately two hours from now. We're tracking all of the moves for you right here.
