I didn't think the team would keep WR Stephen Burton or cornerbacks Brandon Burton.

Looks like Webb made the team. I thought Felder would make the team also, Maybe they hope to keep him on the practice squad.

Yes I like Webb more as a wideout then a QB lol & Thompson looked pretty good. I was hoping he made the team. He will help a lot as a backup if Ponder gets hurt again

I thought they may cut Thompson if they kept Webb. I'm glad they kept both also.

Surprising that Olson is out for the year with that concussion. That hurts our depth.

And i wonder what they'll do with Childs in 6 weeks? That guy would have been a stud, but its gonna be hard to come back from all those injuries. To bad for the kid..........

A year for a concussion is a long time. I'm not sure I ever seen anyone out that long for a concussion. just how bad is it? true not having Olson does hurt the depth but they do have Jeff Baca out of UCLA he can play Olson position. I know Chlid would have been a stud for the Vikes. I really would like to see him back on the field.

I like the new punter for the Vikes, This guy is going to be special for them. Did you see him placed the ball near the goal line in that Titans game? Great punter

Sounds encouraging......I actually haven't seen to much of the preseason, so i haven't gotten a chance to see him much.

I wasnt a big fan of the former punter so I'm glad to see him go and bring in a college kid and give him a chance.....

Unless theirs somebody really special I dont see us picking up anybody cause we usually go with the guys we had in camp.Demarcus Love is as good as gone cause he really hasnt done enything since hes been here.If Ballard comes back either Chase Baker or George Johnson will be gone.The question is what happens when Felton comes back and Childs becomes eligible.If Lines performs well we could keep both Felton and Lines and release a linebacker or defensive back.If he doesnt Line will be realeased.Seems to me like the Vikes have a plan for Childs or we could have just put him on ir or released him.I would say Simpson and Webb are on a short lease.They have 6 games to prove it or Childs might take their job.If Simpsons anything like last year the writings on the wall especially seeing Patterson is projected to take that spot eventually.Or we could go to six recievers and release a linebacker.Just my thoughts.

Ill be.No sooner i write this article the Vikings claim J marcus Webb from the Bears.Tough break for Kropog that he makes the team for one day.I assume thats who theyll release seeing they have 8 offensive linemen.

Didnt take Burton long to get picked up by the Jaguars.And their going with only four real wide recievers.One tightend-reciever.Good luck to Stephen.

Kluwe gets cut by the Raiders. Seattle has Harvin on IR, Sidney Rice is Iffy and Winfield Retired.

I have to admire Speilman's moves sometimes.

I hope he is scouring the college ranks for the next QB.

Or three.

Hey, the Vikings are keeping Desmond Bishop. Ya know . . . get a few more washed-up ex-Packers and they might actually win something.

IM not so sure Bishop is washed up.Bishop is gonna have some fun playing with Chad Greenway and Erin Henderson.Looks way better in purple too.Course we have other good linebackers too so Bishop will just be in the rotation.Jennings looks pretty healthy too this year.Now that the regular seasons here we'll turn on the gas.Lol http://thevikingage.com/2013/08/30/desmond-bi...

I think Bishop is still a solid player. He just wont start as MLB. Henderson will be the starter for now anyway. I am not going say Bishop wont end up as the MLB but for now he will play the weakside. He gives the Vikes two strong LBs on the outside.

I believe the coaches had a very tough job making those cuts. Some of the competition was stiff. I think they did a good job. I like "Line" he looks big!

You think theyll keep line when Felton comes back?Who do you think theyll release if they do?

I think once Felton comes back Their is good chance the Vikes will release FB Matt Asiata. I like him but their wont be a need for him.
