How do you see the 53-man roster shaking out?


My guess..

(2) QB: Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill / Taylor Heinicke
(4) RB: Adrian Peterson, Jerick McKinnon, Matt Asiata, Zach Line
(3) TE: Kyle Rudolph, MyCole Pruitt, David Morgan, Rhett Ellison (PUP)
(6) WR: Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Jarius Wright, Adam Thielen, Charles Johnson, Moritz Boehringer
(4) OT: Matt Kalil, Andre Smith, TJ Clemmings, Willie Beavers, Phil Loadholt (IR)
(4) OG: Alex Boone, Brandon Fusco, Joe Berger, Mike Harris
(2) C: John Sullivan, Nick Easton

(4) DE: Everson Griffen, Danielle Hunter, Brian Robison, Scott Chrichton / Stephen Weatherly
(5) DT: Linval Joseph, Sharrif Floyd, Tom Johnson, Shamar Stephen, Kenrick Ellis / BJ Dubose
(6) LB: Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Chad Greenway, Emmanuel Lamur, Kentrell Brothers, Audie Cole / Edmond Robinson
(6) CB: Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, Captain Munnerlyn, Mackensie Alexander, Terence Newman, Marcus Sherels
(4) S: Harrison Smith, Andrew Sendejo, Michael Griffin, Anthony Harris / Antone Exum / Jayron Kearse

(3) ST: Blair Walsh, Jeff Locke, Kevin McDermott

QB (3): Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill, Taylor Heinicke
RB (3): Adrian Peterson, Jerick McKinnon, Matt Asiata
FB (1): Zach Line
WR (6): Laquon Treadwell, Stefon Diggs, Jarius Wright, Cordarrelle Patterson, Adam Thielen, Charles Johnson
TE (4): Kyle Rudolph, MyCole Pruitt, Rhett Ellison, Brian Leonhardt
OL (9): Matt Kalil, Alex Boone, John Sullivan, Brandon Fusco, Andre Smith, Joe Berger, Mike Harris, TJ Clemmings, Nick Easton
DL (9): Everson Griffen, Sharrif Floyd, Linval Joseph, Danielle Hunter, Brian Robison, Tom Johnson, Shamar Stephen, Justin Trattou, Stephen Weatherly
LB: (6): Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Chad Greenway, Edmond Robinson, Emmanuel Lamur, Kentrell Brothers
DB (9): Xavier Rhodes, Terence Newman, Captain Munnerlyn, Trae Waynes, Mackensie Alexander, Harrison Smith, Michael Griffin, Andrew Sendejo, Anthony Harris
ST (3): Blair Walsh, Jeff Locke, Kevin McDermott

Notable cuts: RT Phil Loadholt, S Antone Exum, LB Travis Lewis, CB Marcus Sherels

Only half of the 2016 Draft class actually makes the final 53, but I suspect that several will be on the P.S. if they clear waivers, including Willie Beavers, Jayron Kearse, and Moritz Boehringer. I don't see a way for Morgan to make the roster unless he beats out Ellison.

Can't imagine Zimmer cutting Newman and leaving Munnerlyn, Alexander and Sherels as the only backup outside CBs.

Nor is Sherels going anywhere, he gets $1.5M guaranteed this year.

My guess:

Offense (25):
QB (3): Bridgewater, Hill, Heinicke
RB (3): Peterson, McKinnon, Asiata, Line
WR (6): Treadwell, Diggs, Wright, Johnson, Thielen, Boehringer
TE (3): Rudolph, Morgan, Pruitt
OL (10): Kalil, Boone, Sullivan, Fusco, Smith, Clemmings, Harris, Berger, Easton, Beavers

Defense (25):
DE (4): Griffen, Robison, Hunter, Crichton
DT (4): Floyd, Joseph, Johnson, Stephen
LB (6): Barr, Kendricks, Greenway, Lamur, Brothers, Robinson
CB (6): Rhodes, Waynes, Newman, Munnerlyn, Alexander, Sherels
S (5): Smith, Griffin, Sendejo, Harris, Kearse

Specialists (3):
K: Walsh
P: Locke
LS: McDermott

PUP/IR: Ellison, Loadholt
Traded: Patterson
Notable cuts: Exum, Price, Watts, Lewis, Ellis, Trattou, Sirles
PS: Kerin, Weatherly, Dubose

Your math is off by one. Have three running backs totaled when you've listed four.

I had a hard time with the last two roster spots. Given the rotation that Zimmer likes to use I just can't see him keeping only 8 defensive lineman on the 53.

Captain Munnerlyn could be a surprise cut. If Newman/Alexander prove to be capable of playing the nickel spot, Munnerlyn could be expendable.

Cutting Newman would cost the Vikings $1M in dead money. Cutting Munnerlyn would only cost $333,000.

Dead money, at this point, is irrelevant unless it extends into next year.

I think this is the year that they go with 2 QBs. There are too many potentially valuable assets on the team to waste a spot on a 3rd QB.

I hope they go that route. Just not expecting it.

McKinnon could be the 3rd QB if needed...

That wink description is one of the funniest things I have read in awhile, bravo sir

We should go with two quarterbacks but I feel like we have been saying that for the last 2-3 years and we never do so, I'm not getting my hopes up

You may be joking but as bad as Hill looked this year why not just let Jet and AD play some read option football if we are down to our 3rd string QB.
