The Vikings had 10 draft picks in April, and before a preseason game has even been played, 10% of them are no longer on the team.
Two torn patella tendons have already ended rookie receiver Greg Childs’ season with the Vikings, and it may have already ended his career with the team as well.
On Monday morning, the Vikings waived their fourth round pick, according to PFT. This is an extremely disappointing turn of events for the young receiver who was beginning to flash in training camp and was an option to be a starter in week one.
If Childs makes it through waivers, which is not a guarantee, then the Vikings may be able and willing to stash him on the injured reserve and give him another chance at success a year from now.
