Vikings Roster Cuts Tracker: Road to 53

After a busy offseason for the Minnesota Vikings that included moving into a new team headquarters, landing two of the most prolific free agents in team history, losing a starting offensive lineman to a season-ending injury, losing a coach, trading for a center, dishing out extensions and going 3-1 in the preseason, it’s finally time to set the regular season roster.

Due to a loaded roster primed with quality players and ample competition, there were undoubtedly some very difficult decisions for the coaches and front office staff to make. Following Thursday’s fourth and final preseason game, the Vikings started bringing some clarity to the much-anticipated solution.

The allocation of players onto the regular season roster as well as the 10-man practice squad began Friday. Here’s who was cut by the team, who will make up the practice squad and players that will ultimately make the Vikings 53-man roster. Please note things may change as the team places waivers on players that were released around the league this weekend. These lists will update as news breaks.
