Over the past several months and through the offseason program, training camp and the preseason, the Vikings have been preparing to defend back-to-back division titles during the 2010 season. A major part of that preparation is evaluating players in an effort to shape the roster.
On Saturday the Vikings cut 20 players in order to get down to the 53-man roster limit in front of the 5:00 p.m. CT deadline.
The players cut by the Vikings today are: S Colt Anderson, G Thomas Austin, G Adrian Battles, WR Taye Biddle, WR Freddie Brown, T Patrick Brown, T Chris Clark, FB Ryan D’Imperio, WR Marquis Hamilton, RB Ian Johnson, DT Tremaine Johnson, K Rhys Lloyd, TE Garrett Mills, DE Mike Montgomery, WR Logan Payne, T Drew Radovich, CB Marcus Sherels, LB Nate Triplett, WR Javon Walker and CB DeAndre Wright.
The next step for teams is to assemble a practice squad, will be announced tomorrow. Practice squads have a limit of 8 members and those players will be able to practice with the Vikings tomorrow as the team prepares for its season-opening game at New Orleans on Thursday, September 9.
