Vikings cut Chase Ford, re-sign Justin Trattou

The Minnesota Vikings cut tight end Chase Ford and re-signed defensive end Justin Trattou.

Ford is a 6-foot-6, 245-pounder from the University of Miami.

He has spent time previously with the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.

Trattou was on the active roster until being recently released when Ford was promoted from the practice squad.

The move to add a defensive end to the roster coincides with reports that the Vikings are trying to trade defensive end Jared Allen. Whether this is connected or not remains to be seen.
