Vikings work their way down to 53
The Minnesota Vikings opted to go without a kickoff specialist after all, a move that will cost them $200,000.
That is the amount Rhys Lloyd gets to keep on his way out the door. He was one of the cuts the team made this afternoon to get down to the 53-man limit.
Tight end Garrett Mills and running back Ian Johnson were popular names among those let go. It was previously reported that veteran wide receiver Javon Walker was cut loose after a short stay.
Here are the remaining cuts: safety Colt Anderson, guard Thomas Austin, wide receivers
Taye Biddle and Frddie Brown, offensive tackles Patrick Brown and Chris Clark, fullback Ryan D’Imperio, wide receiver Marquis Hamilton, defensive tackle Tremaine Johnson, defensive end Mike Montgomery, wide receiver Logan Payne, offensive tackle Drew Radovich, cornerback Marcus Sherels, linebacker Nate Triplett and cornerback DeAndre Wright.
