Rhys Lloyd became the highest paid kickoff specialist in NFL history when the Vikings guaranteed him a $200,000 offseason roster bonus to take over the duties from starting placekicker Ryan Longwell. Not only did Lloyd’s acquisition piss off Longwell, it ended in failure.
The Vikings waived Lloyd on Saturday as part of their final cuts.
To complement our last post on Vikings cuts, we bring to you even more:
Wide receiver Logan Payne
Defensive end Michael Montgomery
Offensive guard Thomas Austin
Offensive tackle Chris Clark
Offensive guard Adrian Battles
