The Vikings released Chaska native Tim Mattran from their practice squad today.

In and of itself this doesn't mean much. But what it does signal is that the Vikes are looking for someone else to take his place. I doubt this but it could mean putting Booty on the practice squad and signing a free agent QB. But I doubt Childress will try and sneak another QB through on the practice squad. It could signal any number of other things. This will be interesting to watch.

That's an interesting move.
Don't think they would drop him unless they had a decent player they had set up to acquire.
I liked him too

Not sure... but the article said this:


Tuesday is a day when NFL teams will often bring in “street free agents” to workout so there could be some players at Winter Park today getting a look. This is often done so teams can build a file on these free agents in case they need to add depth later in the season.

Perhaps they are simply freeing up space, or maybe they do in fact have someone particular in mind.

Interesting...

Really kind of strange.
Obviously he has been released to make room for someone, but who?
I don;t see any names out there right now that would make me excited about us signing.
Possibly a trade in the works?

Is it too early to make room for Mac?

Wouldn't we have to fill this space ASAP?
