Some teams across the National Football League have already started the process of paring their rosters down to 53 players, and we now have what appears to be the first reported cut for the Minnesota Vikings.
The #Vikings will make some cuts today and more tomorrow. WR Korey Robertson is out, I hear. He got $50K to sign here as an undrafted free agent.— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) August 31, 2018
According to Darren Wolfson of KSTP, the team will be releasing wide receiver Korey Robertson. Robertson signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi after the 2018 NFL Draft.
As you can see from Wolfson’s report, the Vikings gave Robertson a pretty sizeable signing bonus to come to the team as an undrafted free agent, but he just didn’t seem to get a whole lot of opportunities to make plays this preseason, and got lost in the shuffle on the team’s depth chart. He could be a candidate to come back to the practice squad, but we’ll have to see how that works out.
So, the Vikings are starting the moves necessary to get their roster down to 53 players. They’ve got a little less than 24 hours to make it all happen, and we’ll be tracking all of it for you right here.
