Only 53 men will make the Minnesota Vikings final roster. Who are some that may never don the horns before getting released?

The Minnesota Vikings have been loading their roster with talent this offseason. They signed some key defensive players in free agency and found great value all throughout the 2021 NFL Draft.

Many assumed they were done after the draft, but the Vikings continue to bring in veterans who could have an impact and see plenty of snaps this upcoming season. The talent and depth on this roster has truly become impressive and it’s beginning to become difficult to see how all of these players will fit on the depth chart.

There will be some very good players who will end up getting cut, and some of those could be young guys who were hoping to break out this preseason, and others could be some veterans that have been with the team for a few seasons.

There could also be players cut who never get a chance to don the beautiful shade of purple that all Vikings fans love so much. So who are a few of these guys who could get cut before playing a meaningful snap in purple and gold this year?
