Id definitely examine the WR, CB and DT market after all of these cuts. Could use some depth at some of these spots. Im interested in Drake Nevis. Cant really name any CBs that jump out at the moment.

As of 6 p.m., Zach Line is on the Vikings' 53-man roster. Rosters can change with waiver claims tmrw, but an important step for the UDFA.


It'll be interesting to see his role this year and how he is used? Is he just on the team until Felton gets back?

Injuries have killed his career thus far. Might be worth a flier. I think adding a 5th DT would be ideal. We simply dont know what is going on with Ballard and the season starts in a week.

David Gettis was also released by Carolina, he is an intriguing WR but might have some injury questions at the moment.

Browns kept 0 kickers on the roster... interesting strategy, let's see how it works for them

(obviously they will add one after, or during the waiver period)

I'm fine with Burton cut, his WR skills were limited and we knew it for quite a while. Fair run blocker, but his WR ability was not there and likely not going to develop.

Webb is a RZ threat and special team player.
Identified roles are more important in my opinion

Austin has indeed been cut, too bad he's not PS eligible. I would love to get him in here with our strength guys + Sug to try and get him back to where he was out of UNC.

Burton doesn't have ST eligibility, does he?

And by ST, I clearly meant PS Embarassed

No, active for too many games in his career.

Quote:
A player is eligible if he does not have an accrued season of NFL experience. Players gain an accrued season by being on the active roster for at least six games.

If a player has one accrued season, they can still be practice squad eligible if they were on the 45-man active gameday roster for less than nine regular season games.

A player is deemed to have served a season on the practice squad if he remains on the practice squad for at least three weeks. Players are eligible to be on the practice squad for two seasons.

Players can be eligible for a third practice squad season if their team maintains no less than 53 players on the active/inactive list at all times.

Burton was active for 12 games in his one accrued season
