I had a weird feeling the Vikings would look at him. Insurance policy.

I'm not disappointed that Roc was waived. Lots of people seemed to like him for some reason, but I have always thought Boone outplayed him from the 2nd preseason game on into the regular season.

As of now...I think the Vikings are truly 3 deep at the running back position and if an unfortunate injury happens to Cook/Murray, the Vikings should still be able to have a solid ground game.

Seems really unusual to keep 4 RB's plus Ham on the active roster. I assume this is a vet minimum contract?

I have convinced myself that the Vikings need to draft a TE in the next draft. There's a good amount out there and Rudolph is getting older. He can still produce and they may last another season, but nothing wrong with having 2 productive TE's. I'm eyeing Iowa TE's Fant or Hockenson...Preferably Hockenson. Especially after watching Kittle tear up the league week in and week out.
