The Vikings made official the addition of free agent receiver Albert Wilson on Tuesday, announcing the move.

That made necessary a corresponding move, and the Vikings cut running back A.J. Rose Jr. to make room on the 90-player offseason roster.

Rose led the Vikings in rushing in the 2021 preseason, including a 100-yard performance against the Broncos in the preseason opener. The Vikings cut him out of the preseason, but they re-signed him to the practice squad.

He spent most of last season on their practice squad.

Rose has never played in a regular-season game.

4 responses to “Vikings cut A.J. Rose to make room for Albert Wilson

  1. Rose is a good player. I hope they can get him back for special teams. He could even compete for a backup job somewhere else

  2. Still think we should’ve moved Cook or Mattison. Nwangu needs the ball.

  3. Rose was a camp RB, got a lot of carries and did okay in preseason games but there was no way he was gonna breakout of that RB room with Cook, Mattison, Nwangu and the rookie they just drafted. If Nwangu had not been hurt early in preseason last year, Rose would likely not have seen as much action. Hope he finds room on a squad somewhere.

  4. If Rose can’t stick with the Vikings, highly unlikely he’ll be able to make any team.
