Vikings Release TE Chase Ford, Add DE Justin Trattou


The Vikings roster shuffled continued this week.  After the team released defensive end Justin Trattou last week and signed tight end Chase Ford, many people thought that was the last we’d hear about Trattou.  But that just isn’t the case.

Today, the Vikings brought back Trattou to the roster and released Chase Ford.  This is Trattou’s third time this year signing with Minnesota and has yet to see him play a snap.  He was a member of the New York Giants prior to his initial signing with the Vikings.

Chase Ford will most likely clear waivers and return to Minnesota’s practice squad.
