Allen Reisner was the last man added to the practice squad last weekend after clearing waivers. Turns out his stay on the PS wasn’t very long: On Saturday the Vikings promoted Reisner to the 53-man roster. To make way for Reisner the Vikings waived offensive lineman Seth Olsen.
I sort of had a feeling the Vikings wouldn’t stick long with only 3 tight ends on the 53-man roster, given the emphasis Bill Musgrave‘s offense puts on the position. With Olsen being waived, the Vikings now have 9 offensive linemen available.
Reisner, a UDFA, impressed many during training camp, and was somewhat of a surprise cut last Saturday. But the Vikings showed their enthusiasm for Reisner’s talent by adding him to the practice squad, and now may be ready to add him to the tight end mix on game days.
