Vikings Waive Dominique Johnson, Sign Kyle O'Donnell


I have no idea who the Vikings’ fifth wide receiver will be but I do know who it won’t be: Dominique Johnson. Today the Vikings waived the UDFA out of Cal Poly, temporarily (or perhaps permanently) derailing his NFL dreams. Tom Pelissero says Johnson had a rough camp and I’ll have to take his word for it, as I did not pay one bit of attention to him (Pelissero may not have either, judging by his misspelling of Johnson’s name in his tweets).

Johnson’s departure opened up a roster spot which the Vikings quickly used on Kyle O’Donnell, a UDFA linebacker out of Liberty who was cut a couple weeks ago by the Redskins. I’m assuming O’Donnell’s addition is related to the injuries suffered by linebackers Ross Homan and Mark Washington. The Vikes have a game to play Saturday night and don’t want to run out of scrub linebackers to run out there in the fourth quarter.
