With the big news that came out of Winter Park today, it’s easy to forget that we’re still just two and a half hours or so away from the deadline for getting NFL rosters down to 53 players. We’re getting word of another cut from the Minnesota Vikings, and it’s one that’s not totally unexpected.
#Vikings are planning to cut Isaac Fruechte, per source. His chances of making roster hinged on Jarius Wright trade.— Ben Goessling (@GoesslingESPN) September 3, 2016
The Vikings are releasing wide receiver Isaac Fruechte, according to Ben Goessling of ESPN. It appears that the Vikings are going to bring him back to the practice squad if they are able.
Fruechte is a local guy, having played his high school ball at Caledonia before moving on to the University of Minnesota. He went undrafted in 2015, and spent all of last season on the Vikings’ practice squad.
With the Bradford trade and the release of Fruechte, the Vikings are now back at 70 players, which means they’re going to be releasing 17 more players before 3 PM Central time. We will have all of those moves for you right here.
