Vikings Roster Cuts: Minnesota Vikings release Cornelius Edison

Definitely didn’t see this one coming

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The last of the Minnesota Vikings cuts to get down to the 53-man roster is one that comes as a bit of a surprise, given the amount of time that he was given during the preseason.

As a part of their final cuts going into the NFL’s roster deadline, the Vikings have released center Cornelius Edison.

Following the injury to Pat Elflein and his subsequent starting the season on the Physically Unable to Perform List, Edison was given a lot of time at the center spot for the Vikings. Honestly, I had him on my 53-man roster projection, and actually thought that he was on track to start Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. However, now he’s not even making the final roster.

I would assume that Edison would be a prime candidate to come back to the practice squad, provided another team didn’t like what they saw from him and decides to put a claim in on him.

With that, the Minnesota Vikings are officially down to 53 players on the roster. It’s been a pretty eventful cutdown day, ladies and gentlemen, and we’re glad that you chose to get all of the latest news about it right here at The Daily Norseman. We’ll have more on the roster as things take shape over the next couple of days.
