Vikings Roster Cuts: QB Rhett Bomar Among 10 Players Released

The Minnesota Vikings have made their first set of NFL roster cuts for the 2011 preseason. The Vikings released 10 players on Monday getting them down to 80 players. Teams must get down from the 90-man training camp roster to the 80-man roster limit by Tuesday afternoon.

The most notable Vikings release was QB Rhett Bomar but even that's not a big surprise.

After Bomar, here are the rest of the Vikings cuts: S Chris Adingupu, OL Conan Amituanai, TE Ed Barham, DB Simeon Castille, LB Jonathan Gilmore, WR Andre Holmes, LB Kyle O'Donnell, K Nate Whitaker and DT Colby Whitlock.

As Tom Pellissero of ESPN 1500 notes, all these players were on the third or fourth string so they're not much of a surprise.

In years past teams had a maximum training camp roster of 80 players before the first cut down which made them go down to 75 players. Now that maximum limit is 90 players and the first cut requires them to get down to 80 players. The second cut, which comes on Sept. 3, will make them get down to 53 players.
