As the Vikings look to cut down the roster to 53, here’s one final roster prediction brought to you by Sporting Sota.
With key players sitting out, the Minnesota Vikings lost 30-9 to the Miami Dolphins in their final preseason game. While the fourth preseason game gives bubble players a final opportunity to prove their worth a roster spot, most didn’t take advantage of the extra playing time. In fact, players like Jabari Price, Rodney Adams, Willie Beavers and Marshall Koehn hurt their chances of making the roster with bad games.
That being said, a few names enhanced their chances of making the roster. On offense, wide receiver Cayleb Jones stood out catching nine passes for 127 yards, while Jaleel Johnson, Tashawn Bower and Ifeadi Odenigbo played well on defense. Linebacker Eric Wilson also had a great finish to a solid preseason producing four tackles, including two for a loss.
Moving forward, Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer turn their attention to cutting down the roster to 53 prior to the 4 p.m. ET deadline on Saturday. So, behold, the final roster prediction of the preseason!
