Charles Gordon Released

Sean Jensen of the Pioneer-Press just tweeted (did I mention I’m also on Twitter?) that the Vikings have cut cornerback Charles Gordon.  We of course recall Gordon’s one memorable 2008 moment – that awful-looking broken ankle he suffered while returning a punt against the Packers.  Gordon missed the rest of the season after that, but was primed for a comeback attempt with the Vikes this training camp.  Sadly, that will not happen now.  Evidently, the Vikes are happy with Benny Sapp and Marcus McCauley as the two main guys competing for the nickelback position, unless another move is forthcoming.

Update: Judd Zulgad tweets that Gordon was cut after failing a physical.  More than one wise-ass has already pointed out that this opens up a roster spot for you know who.

    Ha! Gordon will make the best kind of glue. Maybe we can put it on Sidney Rices gloves in 2009. In memorandum.
