With the Minnesota Vikings making the necessary moves to get their roster down to 53 players by the 3:00 PM Central time deadline, the team has parted ways with one of their linebackers.
The team has waived linebacker Tuf Borland as a part of their final cuts.
Borland signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of THE. . .dramatic pause. . .Ohio State University this offseason. The Vikings did make several moves at linebacker this offseason, which made Borland’s road to making the roster a little bit more difficult.
Borland seems to be a candidate to be brought back to the team’s practice squad, as he did have a solid preseason. We will have to see if the Vikings have that interest when they put together their practice squad on Wednesday.
