Anoka County Releases Caleb King, And So Do Vikes

I imagine it was a good feeling for Caleb King to walk out of an Anoka County jail on Tuesday, but probably not as good of a feeling to find he isn’t only a free person but also a free agent.

The Vikings released King on Tuesday after he spent three days in jail on suspicion of severely beating a man at a party who supposedly teased King for looking like Eddie Murphy.  King has not yet been charged.

The Vikings seemingly placed a great emphasis on talent, leadership, and character in this weekend’s Draft.  The decision to cut King, a player that would likely be nothing more than the third running back, should surprise nobody.

So many opinions are heard about this topic, from vanity, to selfishness, to football injury, to mental illness and on and on.
