Vikings Trim Two To Fit Incoming Rookies

The Vikings selected ten players in the 2012 NFL Draft last weekend and immediately agreed to terms with 15 undrafted free agents.

With Caleb King having already been released, the Vikings announced another pair of cuts on Wednesday.

The team has waived tight end Daniel Hardy and guard Butch Lewis.  Neither had ever appeared in a regular season game with the Vikings and both seemed to have incredibly long odds of landing a full time role with the team.

The Vikings now have 65 players on the roster, so once all the rookies are signed, they will be at the roster maximum of 90 players.
