After a busy offseason for the Minnesota Vikings that included moving into a new headquarters, landing two prolific free agents, losing an offensive lineman to a season-ending injury, trading for a center, dishing out extensions and going 3-1 in the preseason, it’s finally time to set the regular season roster.
The Minnesota Vikings (1-1 in preseason play) host the Seattle Seahawks (0-2) at U.S. Bank Stadium on Friday night in the third preseason game for each team. Both teams played last Saturday and are coming off losses.
The Vikings claimed former Atlanta Falcons fullback Luke McNitt off of waivers Tuesday. McNitt, who played college football at Nebraska, was signed by Atlanta as an undrafted free agent in May. He was waived by the Falcons on Monday.
The team has filled 88 of 90 roster spots. The Vikings continued filling out the roster after five openings were created Monday. Another offensive lineman, center Jacob Judd, was signed on Tuesday.
Two of five roster openings have been filled. The Vikings began filling roster spots after creating five openings earlier in the day Monday. According to Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune, the team signed former Minnesota Gophers fullback Kobe McCrary (#48).
