It’s going to be difficult for players to make the Minnesota Vikings’ roster at tight end, with three players pretty well entrenched on the depth chart. As a part of their final cuts, the Vikings have let two of them go.

Reports have come out that the Vikings have waived tight ends Brandon Dillon and Nakia Griffin-Stewart.

Dillon, who signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent last season, was a surprise addition to the 53-man roster and made his NFL debut in the season opener against Atlanta. He was then waived and spent the remainder of the season on the practice squad.

Griffin-Stewart was signed as an undrafted free agent from Pittsburgh this offseason. He spent much of his college career at Rutgers before transferring to Pitt as a graduate transfer.

No indication has been given yet as to whether the Vikings will make an effort to bring either Dillon or Griffin-Stewart back to the practice squad.

More roster moves are coming for the Vikings as they attempt to get their roster down to 53 players before the deadline at 3:00 PM Central. You can track all of the moves are being made right here on our roster cut tracker.
