Safeties (4)


  • Harrison Smith
  • Lewis Cine
  • Camryn Bynum
  • Josh Metellus


  • Myles Dorn
  • Mike Brown

Selecting their safeties is probably going to be one of the easiest decisions the Vikings have to make when constructing their final roster this year. Harrison Smith, Lewis Cine, and Camryn Bynum are all locks while the value that Josh Metellus can offer on special teams will be enough for Minnesota to keep him on this season’s final roster.

Specialists (3)


  • Greg Joseph (K)
  • Jordan Berry (P)
  • Andrew DePaola (LS)


  • Ryan Wright (P)

Luckily for the Vikings, Greg Joseph has had an excellent training camp and preseason this summer. Hopefully, Joseph’s hot streak continues into the regular season because Minnesota doesn’t currently have a backup plan at kicker.

Neither punter had an encouraging performance last weekend (combined 34.3 yards per punt), so right now, the job should still go to the veteran Jordan Berry.
