The Vikings announced Tuesday morning that the team has released safety Taylor Mays.
Mays signed with Minnesota on March 24, and he has been working with the reserves during this spring’s OTA’s. Tuesday marked the kickoff of the team’s three-day mandatory mini camp.
Mays played in Cincinnati from August 2011, and he reunited with coach Mike Zimmer when he joined the Vikings. His size (6’3″) and speed combined added to his previous experience with Zimmer looked to make him a strong candidate, but he wasn’t getting many reps at safety thus far.
