Roster cuts are just around the corner for the Minnesota Vikings, but that didn’t stop the team from thinning out the depth chart a little early. The Vikings waived cornerback Melvin White this morning, bringing the roster to 89 players.
The team must cut the roster to 75 by 4 pm EST on Tuesday, August 30 and 53 by September 3. White signed a futures/reserve contract with the Vikings in January, but couldn’t stay healthy and missed both preseason games. According to Chris Tomasson, he was hurt in an August 8 practice and only returned to practice last week.
