The Minnesota Vikings on Sunday claimed offensive tackle Mike Harris off waivers from the San Diego Chargers. Harris, 25 , has had 9 starts since 2012 with San Diego. Norv Turner was the head coach of the Chargers in 2012. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2012, out of UCLA. In a […]

Minnesota Vikings Practice Squad: Open Thread and Discussion

Minnesota Vikings Practice Squad: Open Thread and Discussion

The Minnesota Vikings have already made a couple of claims off of waivers, grabbing tight end MarQueis Gray and offensive tackle Mike Harris off of waivers from the Cleveland Browns and San Diego Chargers, respectively. Now, the time has come where the Minnesota Vikings can begin forming their 10-man practice squad. According to Darren Wolfson on Twitter, nobody the Vikings cut was claimed, so my guess is that we're going to see a lot of familiar names on the practice squad. We can use this as an Open Thread to talk about who will be making up the practice squad for our favorite football...

Minnesota Vikings 53-Man Roster Prediction: How Did I Do?

Before the Minnesota Vikings started announcing their cuts to get the roster down to 53, I decided to take a stab at what I thought the roster would look like when the dust had settled. So, how close did I end up getting? Well, since I'm looking for a way to kill the next 2 1/2 hours before waiver claims are awarded and practice squads are announced, let's take a look! Starters are denoted by an asterisk. Offense Quarterback My prediction: Matt Cassel*, Teddy Bridgewater, Christian Ponder (3)Actual roster: Cassel*, Bridgewater, Ponder (3) Really, this wasn't all that hard. The team appears...

One Last Look At NFL Practice Squad Eligibility Rules

One Last Look At NFL Practice Squad Eligibility Rules

Beginning today at 11 AM Central time, once all of the waiver claims for players that were released over the past couple of days have been awarded, the 32 NFL teams can begin assembling their practice squads. So that we can alleviate any confusion as to how the Minnesota Vikings can assemble their practice squad, let's take a look at what the practice squad is all about. Practice Squad Basics Thanks to a new rule that was passed just a couple of weeks ago, practice squads are now comprised of ten players. The number used to be eight. Practice squad players are just that. . .guys that...

Minnesota Vikings 53-Man Roster: HOT SPORTS TAKES!

It's been a pretty hectic day tracking all of the Minnesota Vikings' roster moves. . .you know, when they finally got around to making them (thanks for dumping everything on us at one time, Mr. Spielman). Now that the dust has settled, what are we left with? Well, the big thing to remember is that the roster is not going to look the same 24 hours from now. The Vikings will almost certainly be putting in some waiver claims on some players that were released by other teams. They're currently at #8 on the priority list (as it's still based on last year's draft order), and those claims have to...

Minnesota Vikings Roster: So, What Happens Now?

The Minnesota Vikings have cut their roster to 53 players, per National Football League rules. So, what does the team do from here? Well, now the team can start putting in waiver claims on guys that they're interested in that were cut by other teams. The waiver priority order is based on last year's order of finish, so the Vikings sit at #8 on the priority list, and the Houston Texans are at #1. The waivers don't reset after a team makes a claim. . .basically, if the Texans want somebody, they get them. The waiver claim period ends at 11 AM Central time on Sunday, or approximately 19 hours...

Your Minnesota Vikings 53-Man Roster

Now that all of the cuts are officially in, here is how the 53-man roster for your Minnesota Vikings currently stands.

Vikings Placing Antonio Richardson On Injured Reserve

A player that many thought would be one of the bigger steals of the undrafted free agency period for the Minnesota Vikings won't be seeing the field this year. Per numerous sources, the Vikings will be placing offensive tackle Antonio Richardson. . .you may know him as "Tiny". . .on injured reserve, ending his season. Richardson, who was originally projected to be as high as a second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, instead didn't hear his name called on draft weekend and was signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent shortly thereafter. Per Darren Wolfson, Richardson needs surgery...

Minnesota Vikings Cuts Continue: Williams, Baca, Crocker, Coleman Released

A couple of surprises as we get closer to the deadline for the Minnesota Vikings to make their roster cuts. We've got four more names to add to the list. Per numerous sources, the Minnesota Vikings are releasing running back Dominique Williams, offensive lineman Jeff Baca and. . .what comes as a significant surprise to me. . .safeties Chris Crocker and Kurt Coleman. It's certainly a surprise to see both Crocker and Coleman cut, but I guess the Vikings were impressed enough with Andrew Sendejo and Antone Exum that they figured they didn't need a veteran. I think we can assume this means that...

Minnesota Vikings Release Kain Colter, Mike Zimmer

The Minnesota Vikings have released two more players leading up to the deadline to get their roster down to 53 players. Per numerous sources, the Vikings have cut ties with wide receiver Kain Colter and linebacker Mike Zimmer. Colter was an undrafted free agent from Northwestern. He got quite a bit of time in the final pre-season game against the Tennessee Titans, and finished the pre-season with three catches for 33 yards. He also got some work as a return man. The Vikings have apparently expressed interest in bringing Colter back to the practice squad should he clear waivers. Mike Zimmer....

Minnesota Vikings Release Banyard, Reisner, Baker, Remmers

Now the Minnesota Vikings' cuts are starting to flow in, as they apparently waited until after today's walk-through to announce them. And a couple of guys that had pretty impressive pre-seasons are going to be looking for work. Per Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the Minnesota Vikings have released running back Joe Banyard, tight end Allen Reisner, and defensive tackle Chase Baker. Banyard's release is a bit of a disappointment, I think. He was the Vikings' leading rusher in the pre-season, with 212 yards on 36 carries. It wasn't enough to get him a spot on the 53-man roster. It will be...

A Brief Explanation of Short-Term Injured Reserve

A Brief Explanation of Short-Term Injured Reserve

As we reported earlier, the Minnesota Vikings have placed safety Jamarca Sanford on what is called "short-term injured reserve." I thought this was the same thing as being given the designation to return, but it is not. Thanks to our friends over at Bleeding Green Nation, this is a basic explanation of what "short-term IR" is, as they just went through it with wide receiver Arrelious Benn. Short Term IR is NOT THE SAME THING as IR-Designated to Return. Short Term IR means the player will be cut when healthy and can't re-sign. — Sam Lynch (@shlynch) August 29, 2014 @JoshCahan...

Minnesota Vikings Place Jamarca Sanford On Injured Reserve

The Minnesota Vikings have made another roster move, and it clarifies the picture at safety a little bit. . .but maybe not in a way that folks might have expected. Per numerous sources, the Vikings have placed safety Jamarca Sanford on injured reserve. Sanford was the starter next to Harrison Smith when the 2013 season started, and was the starter all season when Andrew Sendejo replaced Smith after Smith's injury. He had been battling a quad injury all pre-season, and didn't really get a whole lot of time with the top units on defense. The report is that Sanford has been placed on...

Minnesota Vikings Final Roster Cuts

In a little more than 13 hours, the Minnesota Vikings. . .along with every other team in the National Football League. . .will have to have all of their various roster cuts and other moves completed in order to get their rosters down to 53 players. As the Vikings haven't made any cuts yet. . .or, at the very least, have not made them public. . .that means that 22 guys who have busted their tails for Mike Zimmer and company since OTAs in May are going to be out of work. Some of them might find their way onto practice squads, whether it's with the Vikings or with any of the other NFL teams....

Minnesota Vikings Release Fred Evans

Minnesota Vikings Release Fred Evans

The Minnesota Vikings have started their cuts, and the first one is a bit of a surprise. As we reported on our Minnesota Vikings Cutdown Tracker, the first guy out the door is none other than defensive tackle Fred Evans. Of all the 53-man roster predictions I've seen over the past couple days, I'm pretty sure that every one of them had Evans sticking with the team, but Mike Zimmer and company apparently had other ideas. Fred Evans joined the Vikings in 2007 after playing his rookie season with the Miami Dolphins. A sixth-round draft choice out of Texas State, Evans was a solid rotational...

One Last Shot At The Vikings' 53-Man Roster

The Minnesota Vikings haven't started making their cuts yet (as some other teams have), but they need to have the roster trimmed to 53 in a little more than 24 hours (3 PM Central time on Saturday). So, even though we've had a couple of 53-man roster predictions to this point, let's take one more shot at it now that the entire pre-season is in the books. Starters are denoted with an asterisk.

The NFL on Friday morning upheld its’ suspension of Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson. Simpson had appealed the suspension about two weeks ago in New York City. Simpson was arrested in November 2013 for driving under the influence and refusing to submit to a chemical test. He avoided jail time in a plea deal. […]
