The Minnesota Vikings have announced the necessary roster moves to reach the 53-player limit.
Four vested veterans were let go: OL Ryan Cook, TE Jeff Dugan, LB Heath Farwell, and DE Stylez G White.
Twenty-two players who are not vested veterans were waived: DE David Akinniyi, RB Tristan Davis, G Byron Isom, CB Devon Torrence, S Ryan Hill, WR Jaymar Johnson, WR Emmanuel Arceneaux, RB Alexander Robinson, FB Ryan D’Imperio, FB Matt Asiata, WR Juaquin Iglesias, WR Stephen Burton, LB Ross Homan, DT Tremaine Johnson, DE Cedric McKinley, CB Tony Carter, G Chris DeGeare, LB David Herron, WR Juaquin Iglesias, RB Caleb King, OL Thomas Welch and CB Cord Parks.
And LB Jasper Brinkley was placed on Injured Reserve.
Said Vikings coach Leslie Frazier in the team’s announcement, “It’s extremely difficult to tell players that we are going in a different direction without them. It’s especially hard when they are veterans that have been quality players and starters for us over the years and have been a big part of our team, on and off the field. They are good people and good players and we wish them the best in the future.”
