For the Vikings and every other team in the NFL, it’s cut day.
Minnesota has to whittle its roster down to 53 players by before 4 p.m. on Tuesday. As of now, that leaves a lot of decisions left to be made.
The Vikings had some fringe roster players step up this offseason. Will the team carry more running backs than usual? Will it elect to go deep on defensive tackles? Just how many undrafted free agents will end up making the cut? These are all things that will be decided in the upcoming hours.
So Vikings Wire elected to make a comprehensive list. Here’s a look at Minnesota’s latest cuts.
