Reshard Cliett waived

A darkhorse candidate to make the roster is among the cuts

Although Reshard Cliett had a strong training camp and was gaining momentum as a guy that was a potential surprise move, it wasn’t enough to make the final 53 man roster:

Although I agree with Courtney Cronin that the Vikings are going to go with Cameron Smith, I never really thought his roster spot was in any danger. The Vikes generally tend to favor rookie draft picks, and I thought Smith played well enough to earn a spot. But I did think Cliett was a darkhorse guy to be the 6th linebacker.

With the Isidora trade, that’s five guys that have been released or traded, and as we get more, we’ll be sure to pass them along. Follow all the moves right here, in our cutdown tracker.
