The Vikings signed defensive tackle Bruce Gaston and linebacker Travis Lewis this offseason, but neither one of them is going to training camp with the team.
The Vikings announced Thursday that they have waived both of the players. No one was added to the roster, leaving the Vikes with a couple of spots to play with as they head toward training camp.
Gaston was a recent addition to the club, signing with Minnesota in late May after B.J. Dubose tore his ACL. Gaston saw action for both the Packers and Bears during the 2015 season, appearing in nine games and making 12 tackles and a sack.
Lewis also came to the Vikes with previous NFC North experience. He was a Lions seventh-round pick in 2012 and played 42 games in Detroit over the last four seasons.
