The Vikings have one less cut to make to get to the 53-man roster limit, at least for the next three weeks.
The NFL has announced that wide receiver Jerome Simpson will be suspended for the first three games of the season.
Simpson had appealed to the league after getting a DUI in November, and failing to submit to a chemical test.
While it was his first alcohol-related violation, he had previously been suspended three games for violating the substance abuse policy in 2012.
Simpson has slid down the depth chart behind some younger options, and it will be interesting to see whether or how long the Vikings hold onto him.
