The Minnesota Vikings are still a long way away from the start of training camp, but it's not too early to predict who could end up being shocking cuts in 2023.

Every single year it happens. The Minnesota Vikings look to trim their roster and cut players that no fan, blogger, or media analyst sees coming.

In years past, players like defensive end Brian Robison and punter Jordan Berry were let go. Last season, we also saw the shocking cut of defensive tackle Armon Watts, who was a projected starter.

So while this can be an exercise that may end up being futile, it is fun to take a look at the Vikings roster and attempt to gather a group of players who could be surprising cut candidates.

Some of these players could be let go in favor of younger members of Minnesota's roster, while others might have just fallen out of favor with the coaching staff and are down to their last chances.

Whatever the reason, here are five current Vikings who could end up being shocking cuts at the end of August.
