Vikings waive QB Jake Browning

But they’d like to have him back on the practice squad

NFL: Preseason-Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

With the Minnesota Vikings working to set their 53-man roster, we’re not entirely sure what the plan for the quarterback depth chart is, but the team has waived one of the quarterbacks they had in camp.

Reports are coming in that the Vikings have waived quarterback Jake Browning, but would like to bring him back to the practice squad if possible.

Browning signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2019, and spent the season on the Vikings’ practice squad. He had an up-and-down college career at the University of Washington and had some flashes last preseason.

We don’t know what this means for Nate Stanley, who the Vikings drafted in the seventh round of April’s NFL Draft. The Vikings have generally gone with two quarterbacks since Kirk Cousins arrived, and if the Vikings want to bring Browning back to the practice squad, it will be interesting to see what they do with a young quarterback that they invested draft capital in.

We will continue to track the Vikings’ roster cuts as they whittle their roster down to their initial 53. You can track all of the roster cuts right here.
