    Vikes cut 19 and make a trade...

    September 3rd, 2005 5:09 pm by Judd Zulgad

    The Vikings cut 19 players Saturday and placed defensive tackle Steve Martin on injured reserve as they got down to the 53-man regular-season roster limit. The Vikings also made a trade with Cleveland, sending offensive tackle Nat Dorsey to the Browns for center/guard Melvin Fowler.

    Fowler, a third-round pick of the Browns in 2002, has started 14 of the 30 NFL games in which he has played and gives the Vikings some needed depth at center.

    Aaron Elling, who spent training camp in a heated battle for the kicking job with Paul Edinger, was among the cuts. A hip injury suffered by Elling in warm-ups before the third preseason game ended the competition.

    The complete list of cuts (also listed at: Link):
    Travis Dorsch, punter
    Aaron Elling, kicker
    Chris Jones, receiver
    Ryan Hoag, receiver
    Will Hunter, safety
    ReShard Lee, running back
    Butchie Wallace, running back
    Adimchinobe Echemandu, running back
    Sean Berton, tight end
    Adrian Ward, cornerback
    T.J. Cottrell, tight end
    Ukee Dozier, cornerback
    Heath Farwell, linebacker
    Shannon Snell, tackle
    Chris Jahnke, guard
    Brandon Netwon, guard
    Matt Mitrione, defensive tackle
    Richard Angulo, tight end
    Earl Cochran, defensive end

    The Vikings, who finished the preseason with a 3-1 record after beating Seattle on Friday night, will open the regular season on Sept. 11 against Tampa Bay at the Metrodome.

    I'm surprised with the Dorsey trade, but he didn't look too good last night.

    I think they'll keep Hoag, Wallace, Angulo and maybe Farwell on the practice roster.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Our bevy of tight ends were so bad last night, I had to laugh. Peace out Berton and Angulo.

    I was really rooting for Hoag and Dorsch and was kinda surprised Hoag got cut. Everyone else is pretty expendable, and I do like the trade.

    please tell me your joking, that's a pretty stupid reason to cut somebody. he looked good in the preseason, was moving the pile pretty good.

    Thanks Josdin

    Of course, I think the general consensus was that a short course for pronouncing Adimchinobe Echemandu would be a wiser use of time than pronouncing Butchie Wallace with little effort. A.E. did look reasonably good.
