2013 Minnesota Vikings final roster cuts


On Saturday NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to 53-men as we change gears from preseason to regular season. Unfortunately that means the end of a lot of talented players dreams at making an NFL roster. Some will get opportunities on practice squads, some will see that chapter of their life come to an end, at least until possibly next season.

Some players are released, some are waived and some players that they want to hold onto but are injured have other options. There is the physically unable to perform list as well as injured reserve.

Here are two master lists: NFC final roster cuts and AFC final roster cuts.

The Minnesota Vikings didn’t release any notable names.

Minnesota Vikings:

  • TE Colin Anderson
  • DT Christian Ballard
  • RB Joe Banyard
  • S Brandan Bishop
  • OG Travis Bond
  • WR Stephen Burton
  • DT Everett Dawkins
  • S Darris Eubanks
  • CB Bobby Felder
  • TE Chase Ford
  • OT Brandon Keith
  • DT Anthony McCloud
  • LB Tyrone McKenzie
