Vikings begin roster cuts, release linebacker

The Minnesota Vikings have begun their roster cuts. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pellisero, the Vikings have released LB Tanner Vallejo.

Vallejo was brought in two weeks ago for depth on defense and special teams, which is his calling card.

He was a sixth-round pick out of Boise State in 2017 by the Buffalo Bills. He spent a year with them while also spending time with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Commanders and Arizona Cardinals.

Vallejo is the first of 37+ roster moves over the next 48 hours. It was a long shot for him to make the roster, but he would be a candidate for the practice squad.
