Vikings Roster Cuts: Minnesota Vikings to release Tavarres King

He will be released with an injury designation

NFL: Minnesota Vikings-Training Camp Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve gotten wind of another roster move from the Minnesota Vikings, and they’re quickly whittling down some of the logjam that they currently have at the wide receiver position.

Darren Wolfson of KSTP is reporting that the Vikings will be waiving wide receiver Tavarres King. King will be waived with an injury designation, which means that if nobody claims him he will move to the Vikings’ injured reserve list.

King was drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, and bounced around the league for a big before settling in with the New York Giants. He played for the Giants in 2016 and 2017, catching 18 passes and three scores last season with New York. He signed with the Vikings on a one-year deal this offseason.
