Tomorrow, the Vikings will have to make their first cuts to get down to 75. From my count, it appears that they are sitting at 88 (Childs is on PUP and Ballard has left the squad). Therefore, that means that they'll have to cut 13.

Who will be those 13?

I could see Vandenberg surviving this round to be the emergency QB in the 4th preseason game, just a hunch though.

Could be; the Vikings played three QB's last year in the pre-season finale but they were trying to lock down the backup QB competition. I expect Cassel gets maybe a quarter and MBT takes it the rest of the way like he did last year.

I personally don't think that if they cut him, they'd cut him now with their needs at DT for Thursday. There's no Ballard, no Floyd, and maybe no McCloud (he was banged up too). There's not a chance that they'd cut Baker now.

He could, but a lot of teams cut guys they want to be on their practice squad early in the hopes that they pass through waivers unnoticed.

Not a cut for us, but I hope we look into Ryan Williams. It's clear that this offense revolves an explosive back. Williams had a lot of potential as a feature back but hasn't been healthy in some time. I'd hope we can acquire him and let him sit till next season. We can let Toby walk and Williams will have had ample time to heal. He would upgrade the explosiveness potential behind Peterson.

I had a feeling that Reed would make it over Jackson.

Hopefully they can get Randle on the practice squad, i still see some upside there.

Our boy, nooo!

Also, Adam Thielen must have done enough to earn a longer look. That's exciting for us and him.

Compared to my prediction:

Quote:
First Cuts to 75
QB James Vandenburg x
RB Jerodis Williams x
WR LaMark Brown x
WR Rodney Smith
TE Chase Ford
OT DeMarcus Love
OG Tyler Holmes x
OC Camden Wentz x
DE Marquis Jackson x
DE Collins Ukwo
DT Anthony McCloud
LB Stanford Keglar x
CB Greg McCoy x
CB Roderick Williams x
S Darius Eubanks


I think 9 right is pretty good
