The full list of the first round of cuts is just about out, and there were a couple of surprises. Free Agent acquisition Derek Cox was among those who most of us expected to make the team as either the Nickel or Dime CB, but now he’ll be looking to make his impact on another team. Mistral Raymond, a safety who started a handful of games for the Vikings in 2013 was another surprise for this first round of cuts.
Outside of those two, the Vikings have announced 12 players released who were going to be long-shots to make the team right from the beginning. The Vikings still need to cut one more player in order to get down to the 75-man limit at the end of the day. Of the players still on the team, I would expect this final cut to be a LB (none were included in the first 14-players cut), and my best bet is that it’s between Mike Zimmer and Justin Jackson.
Here’s the current list of cuts:
