Your Current Minnesota Vikings 75-Man Roster

Following today's release of quarterback Mike Kafka, the Minnesota Vikings have now reduced their roster to 75 players. They'll play their final exhibition game on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans, and by 3:00 PM Central time on Saturday the roster will have to be down to the final 53. Here is the 75-man roster as it stands right now. By 3:00 PM Central on Saturday, 22 of these players will be out of work. Starters, or presumed starters, are listed first with everyone else in alphabetical order. . .not a depth chart or anything like that. Offense (37) Quarterback (3) Teddy...

Minnesota Vikings Roster Cuts: Kafka Trial Ends In Unemployment

With the moves they've made recently, the Minnesota Vikings had to make one move by 3:00 PM Central to get to the NFL-mandated 75-player limit, and they've made that move by releasing the odd man out on the quarterback depth chart. The team has announced that they have released quarterback Mike Kafka. The team had signed Kafka (and defensive end Caesar Rayford) following this year's first-ever Veteran Combine, but they have now both been released in the first round of cuts. Kafka got a lot of work in the Hall of Fame Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, completing 7-of-10 attempts for 66...

Minnesota Vikings Roster Cuts: Vikings Drop To 76

On Monday, the Minnesota Vikings made two more roster moves. . .one of which, frankly, I thought they had already made. . .and reduced their roster to 76 players. The first move, which was not unexpected, was to announce that cornerback Josh Robinson would start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform List. Robinson suffered a pectoral injury during the offseason workout program, and has not recovered to the point where he can contribute. This means that he will miss the team's first six games and that he can not start practicing with the team until late October. The other...

Cowboys Defensive Snapcounts vs Vikings: "Swarming Rotation" On Full Display

Want to know which Cowboys defensive players were on the field for how many snaps against the Vikings? We've got you covered. While watching a game like last Saturday's preseason game between the Cowboys and Vikings, it can be hard to keep up with who is on the field and who isn't - especially because teams trot out almost their entire roster over the course of a game. But with the first roster cuts looming, it can be interesting to understand which player played how many snaps - and when - which is why I reviewed the entire fist half against the Vikings and charted which defensive player...

Minnesota Vikings Roster Cuts 2015: Vikings Release 11 Players

The Minnesota Vikings have made most of the roster cuts they need to make prior to Tuesday's 3:00 PM Central deadline, as they've cut 11 players. The players the Vikings cut are as follows: RB Joe BanyardTE Brandon BostickCB Jalil CarterCB Justin ColemanWR DaVaris DanielsOL Stephen GoodinLB Josh KadduWR Jordan LeslieDE Caesar RayfordDT Chrishon RoseCB DeMarcus Van Dyke Banyard is probably the most recognizable name of the group, as he got some opportunities at running back for the Vikings near the end of last season. The team also released Bostick, the hero of the 2014 NFC...

Stock Market Report: Vikings at Cowboys

Breaking down who did well and who didn't help their causes in the final preseason game before cuts. The Minnesota Vikings defeated the Dallas Cowboys 28-14 on Saturday night at JerryWorld on Saturday night. Mike Zimmer is now 8-0 in the preseason as a head coach. Some players looked good, some players looked bad, and some players are already looking for new jobs less than 24 hours after the game. I'm sorry. That introduction wasn't very good. To be honest, I'm just mailing it in right now. And can you blame me? This preseason has gone on forever. Trying to sort through the performance of...

Tennessee Titans vs Minnesota Vikings one thing to watch: offense

Who earned some fourth preseason game reps? Ken Whisenhunt said yesterday that there will be some people that should make the squad that are going to play in the final game of the preseason, and he wasn't excited about it: Whiz: Some guys earned the opportunity to play in the fourth preseason game, and I dont mean that in a positive way. #Titans— Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) August 29, 2015 So with that in mind, I think one thing to watch this week is Justin Hunter vs the Minnesota Vikings. I don't think that this one game can change everyone's mind, but with a good group of wide...

Five Questions To Consider About The Minnesota Vikings' Roster Cuts

As we mentioned earlier, the Minnesota Vikings (and every other team in the NFL) will be making a lot of roster cuts over the next week. Teams have to have their rosters reduced from 90 to 75 players by 3:00 PM Central on Tuesday and then to 53 by 3:00 PM Central on Saturday. There are a few questions that fans are probably wondering about concerning the purple and gold as we get close to the annual visits from The Turk. Here are a few that I've been pondering, along with what I think is going to happen. 1) Do the Vikings keep a third quarterback on the roster? It's nice to know that the...

Vikings at Cowboys Recap: Minnesota Remains Undefeated With 28-14 Win

The Minnesota Vikings simply don't lose games in August under Mike Zimmer. The purple and gold pushed their 2015 preseason record to 4-0, and 8-0 in Zimmer's two seasons as head coach, with a 28-14 victory over the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Saturday night. Neither team got very much going early on. The Cowboys got the ball first, and were forced to punt on their first two drives. The Vikings punted on their first drive as well, but the offense got going on the second drive. A defensive holding penalty on Brandon Carr allowed the Vikings to convert a third down, and we finally got a...

Cowboys Drop "Dress Rehearsal" Game To Vikings 28-14, But See What They Need To From Starters

Tony Romo was sharp, the defense was penetrating, and nobody got hurt. Mission accomplished. The "dress rehearsal" went fairly well for the Dallas Cowboys. The final score shows it as a 28 -14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but when the first team ;players were in, things went much better than that number shows. It was not without its warts, and the offense especially took a few series to get clicking, but there were some pretty good signs that things are in pretty good shape for the regular season. By midway through the second quarter, key starters were coming off the field for both teams...

Jeff Locke Injury: Punter Suffers Leg Injury Against Cowboys

UPDATE: Indications are that the injury to Jeff Locke is a right ankle injury. His return is questionable, but he is apparently out and about on the Vikings' sideline. After what has been a fairly successful preseason for him, Jeff Locke. . .the Minnesota Vikings' much-maligned punter. . .suffered an injury in Saturday's preseason contest. In the second quarter of the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys, Locke went back to punt and landed awkwardly after Minnesota's Eric Kendricks and Dallas' J.J. Wilcox got underneath him and caused him to land incorrectly. Locke immediately grabbed...

The Daily Norseman's Survivor Pool Is Live!

It's taken a little longer than normal, ladies and gentlemen, but I'm happy to announce that our annual Survivor Pool is live! For the uninitiated, or for those that have never taken part in an NFL Survivor Pool before, here's how it works. Every week, you pick one team that you think is going to win their game that week. If you're wrong, you get kicked out of the pool. If you're correct, you get to do the same thing the next week, but you can't choose a team that you've used to advance before. For example, say you pick the Minnesota Vikings to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1 of...
