The Vikings moved on Monday to waive CB Charles Gordon because of a failed physical. The move leaves the Vikings with 81 players on the roster and 15 total DBs.
Gordon originally joined the Vikings as an undrafted rookie in 2006, where he initially was on practice squad but eventually moved up to the active roster and was 1 of just 4 rookies and the lone undrafted rookie to start a game during the season. In 2007 he grabbed his 1st career INT against the Chargers and had a career best 7 tackles against the 49ers.
Aside from contributing to the Vikings defense as a nickel back, Gordon was also a standout special teams player for the Puprle. He was a shifty kick returner, which added value to his role with the team. But it was on a special teams play that an ankle injury eventually ended his season in 2008. Gordon suffered the injury while returning a punt against the Packers in Week 10 of last season and was later placed on injured reserve.
