Well, I have said all offseason long that I was 51% sure that Cedric Griffin and Steve Hutchinson would be back with the Vikings.
It appears I was 100% wr-wr-wr-mistaken.
As mentioned in the post below this one, guards Steve Hutchinson and Anthony Herrera have been released by the Vikings and now we know that cornerback Cedric Griffin is a goner, as well.
“It was a tough decision as we move forward and prepare for the upcoming season and the future of our organization,” said Leslie Frazier. “All three individuals have meant a great deal to the Vikings organization both on and off field over the years. We wish all of them the best and thank them for their service to the Minnesota Vikings.”
The Vikings have cleared roughly $13 million in cap space by making these three moves which is expected to give them over $20 million in cap space going into free agency, which starts this week.
We will continue to monitor this fluid situation, but it appears the Vikings are done making moves for today.
