There are still a handful of roster cuts to be made by the Minnesota Vikings as they pare their roster down to 53. It sounds like another member of the team’s defensive backfield is going to be moving on.
Sources tell VT that DB Jack Tocho is a practice squad hopeful. Not on the 53-man roster. #Vikings— Vikings Territory (@vikingterritory) September 1, 2018
Our friends over at Vikings Territory are reporting that defensive back Jack Tocho will not be on the 53-man roster, but that the team hopes to bring him back to the practice squad.
Tocho was a seventh-round pick of the Vikings in the 2017 NFL Draft, and was released from and re-signed to the team’s practice squad several times last season. He has split time between safety and cornerback, and spent most of his time this preseason at the cornerback spot. He had an up-and-down preseason, and it says something that the team likes him enough to try to bring him back.
By our count, the Vikings now have 59 players on their roster, and they have a little less than an hour and a half to cut that number down to 53. We will be keeping track of all the moves right here.
