With the Minnesota Vikings reducing their roster to 53 players, they’ve made another cut to the offensive line, letting go of a player that had been with the team for a couple of seasons.

According to Tom Pelissero, the Vikings have released center Cornelius Edison.

Edison has been in the NFL since 2015, but came to Minnesota in 2017. He spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons on the practice squad for the Vikings, but never appeared in a game as a part of the active roster. He appeared to be on track to, potentially, be the starter at center for the Vikings last season with the team dealing with Pat Elflein’s injury issues, but the team eventually traded for Brett Jones to fill that void.

We’re going to continue tracking all of the Vikings’ roster moves as they get down to the 53-man limit by Saturday at 3:00 PM Central time. We’ll bring all of the news to you as quickly as we can get it out there.
