Reisner is possible. With Carlson's injury possibly a concern, I am not sure they would make that move at the moment. Reisner can play special teams as well, so that unit would take a hit.

MN does have 7 LBs, which is generally a lot, so maybe McKenzie or Dean. Then again, special teams would take a hit. Perhaps Andrew Sendejo? He isnt exactly contributing to the defense, and he did make a boneheaded special teams play.

The easiest route would be WR. Either Devin Aromashodu or Stephen Burton. Aromashodu has been more productive and is higher on the depth chart, but Burton has more potential. Burton could be placed on the practice squad still, I doubt anyone would put a claim in for him.

My vote goes to Stephen Burton.

Really difficult to imagine Stephen Burton has showed enough to warrant another team claiming him.

He's the reasonable, logical choice at this moment.

I agree with this. Burton just doesn't offer anything that Simpson and Wright don't already bring to the table.

Burton is the obvious cut. Even DA, a guy I don't like, at least has some NFL production. Burton has done nothing the past two years (save a lucky catch last game), and likely offers nothing going forward.

I dont mind Burton sticking around on the PS. He came out as a very raw 7th rd pick as a small school WR. his learning curve is probably 3-4 years. He probably isnt ready for meaningful playing time, but physically, he has some tools that you would be ideal for the PS.

Aromasahodu would be a more ideal #4 WR anyway, someone who can come in and give the team a big catch or two every now and then.

I can't wait! Finally Ponder will be able to stretch the field some. That will help the running game, too. And the defence is starting to gel. Things are looking up!

Great to have him back against Detroit, first division game of the season and one MN must win i think.

It is true, Simpson will provide another threat to the offense, instead of having to focus on getting the ball to Harvin and Rudolph.

Simpson, who was suspended for the first 3-games of the season, said that Monday felt like it was the first day of school for him.

Simpson: "I couldn't wait until Monday morning came because i was just so excited. I know that everything is behind me now, hopefully this is the last time that I've got to talk about suspension."

Any word on who has been waived, since Raymond isnt going to IR.

Should be either Burton or Jenkins.

Isn't Burton practice squad eligible? Maybe it'll be him then.

Either way, I don't want to see either on the field much, if at all.
