As the Minnesota Vikings gear up for their third and final preseason game tomorrow against the Arizona Cardinals, fans will be eagerly awaiting what will take place just three days later.
On Tuesday, the NFL will see all 32 teams cut down to 53 players. This year, it's all happening at once. There have been no stops along the way, where historically teams would be required to cut a few players at a time throughout August and leading up to the regular season.
No, this year, it will be one giant mess of cuts around the league, and fans cannot wait to see who makes this Vikings roster.
For the Vikings, we see four players in particular as being easy names to part with on Tuesday.
1. Jordan Ta'amu, QB
First up as an easy decision to cut is at quarterback, with veteran Jordan Ta'amu. Of course, the unquestioned starter in Minnesota is Kirk Cousins. Right behind him, backing up Cousins, is Nick Mullens.
This year, though, the Vikings should end up keeping three quarterbacks on the roster thanks to their drafting of BYU quarterback Jaren Hall in the fifth round. With Cousins, Mullens and Hall, the Vikings' quarterback room is rounded out.
That makes Ta'amu as easy a cut as there is. The former Ole Miss standout has spent some time with several NFL teams since going undrafted back in 2019, but has never appeared in a regular season game. He did, however, play very well in both the USFL (2022) and XFL (2023), even earning the XFL's Offensive Player of the Year.
