With questions surrounding the status of Pat Elflein, the Minnesota Vikings have some questions to answer at the center position as they trim their roster down to 53 players. One player that saw time at center this preseason is not going to get the opportunity to be his replacement.

J.P. Quinn, who the Vikings signed just before the start of training camp, was a part of the team’s initial wave of cuts on Friday afternoon.

Quinn went undrafted this past spring after a solid college career at the University of Central Michigan. There, he was teammates with Tyler Conklin, who the Vikings took in the fifth round of this year’s draft. Quinn did a solid enough job at center, but just didn’t get a lot of opportunity to make an impression and will now be moving on.

Keep it right here as we continue bringing you stories about the players that the Minnesota Vikings release as we watch the final 53-man roster take shape.
