    Marcus Griffin and Travis Key released

    [size=13pt]Vikings waive two, need to reach 80 before camp[/size]

    The Vikings waived rookie defensive backs Marcus Griffin and Travis Key on Monday. Both were signed after failing to be drafted last April.

    Griffith must of done badly or something, maybe just a numbers game I guess. Thought he at least had a chance for practice squad.

    Re: Marcus Griffin and Travis Key released

    It says this "leaves the Vikings roster at 81 players", but looking at vikings.com I come to 79
    ???
    Griffin, Key, Arkee Whitlock and Justin Surrency all waived, of a total of 83 players.

    Anyone knows who the 2 players not listed at vikings.com are?

    Thanks for the update my friend.

    My guess is they will use the practice squad spots for depth at positions of concern.
    If that is the case, then this is a indicator that CB isn't a big concern for the staff.

    IMHO I agree with them.

    Now WR, OL (Specifically C/T), QB (Wright), DT, and possibly TE might be the candidates for the roster spots on the practice squad.

    Too bad, Griffin was a big player for Texas. I wish he would have at least got a shot in TC..

    I agree, and while his chances were slim to begin with, it still would've been a good experience for him and maybe he would've caught another teams eye in the pre-season and anded on a practice squad. I'm not sure I like the new roster limits being down.

    Hmmmmm, I'm keeping an eye on you...... :

    You keep making sense like you have been today and I might just have to move you up a couple of columns on the ole spreadsheet my friend.

    JK.
    I like how you think.
    Glad you came over from the dark side and contribute more on this site.
