We have another roster move for the Minnesota Vikings, as they trim things back a little further at the tight end position.
The #Vikings have informed TE Nick Truesdell he will be waived. Practice squad situation still up in the air.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) September 2, 2017
According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings will be waiving tight end Nick Truesdell.
Truesdell was a veteran of the Arena leagues, having bounced around to several indoor football leagues after going undrafted out of college. The Vikings do have some talent at the tight end spot, but Truesdell might find himself on the practice squad, according to Tomasson.
The Vikings are now down to four tight ends after the release of Truesdell now and Josiah Price earlier in the day. They now have Kyle Rudolph, David Morgan, Kyle Carter, and Bucky Hodges on the roster. Will they keep all four of them on the roster, or will either Carter or Hodges be sent packing?
We will be tracking all of the cuts on our Roster Cut Tracker, and updating things as soon as we have news. With the trade for Tramaine Brock, the Vikings are now at 75 players, meaning that we are looking at 22 more roster moves for Rick Spielman and company before the deadline at 3:00 PM Central time on Saturday.
