Vikings Current Roster after 2nd Wave of Cuts

The Minnesota Vikings conducted their second wave of roster cuts on Tuesday, cutting ties with Harrison Hand (CB), Shaun Beyer (TE) and placing Ryan Connelly (LB) and Blake Proehl (WR) on the Reserve/PUP list.

Albert Wilson (WR) was released on Monday to make room for backup quarterback Nick Mullens, the product of a trade by general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah with the Las Vegas Raiders. Jullian Taylor (DT) was also waived but with an injury designation.

Here is the Vikings updated roster as of August 23rd.
