Although they’ve whittled their roster down to 53 players and have declared an 8-man roster squad, the Vikings are not finished making roster moves. As Vikings VP of Player Personnel Rick Spielman has told us before, managing an NFL roster is a never-ending process.
That process continued on Sunday afternoon when the Vikings waived C Jon Cooper and signed C Kory Lichtensteiger.
Lichtensteiger is a 2nd year player out of Bowling Green State who was a 4th round pick by the Denver Broncos in 2008. The Broncos waived Lichtensteiger on Saturday as they trimmed their roster to get to the 53-player limit.
In college, Lichtensteiger played both guard and center. Over his 5-year career, the 6-3, 295-pounder received numerous honors, including being chosen as a team captain and being named to All-MAC, Academic All-MAC and national All-American lists.
