The roster deadline has officially come and gone, and the Minnesota Vikings officially have their (initial) 53-man roster for the 2020 NFL season. Here is a first look at how everything shakes out.

It is also worth noting that linebacker Ben Gedeon was still on the Physically Unable to Perform List as of the roster deadline. As a result, he has gone onto the reserve/PUP list for the regular season, meaning that he will miss the first six regular season games at a minimum.
That’s a look at how the first 53-man roster of the year shakes out, folks! What do you think? And remember, teams can now start claiming players on waivers, so by this time tomorrow the 53-man roster will already see some changes.
