Seattle cut Tom Johnson after 1 game.

Apparently, needed the roster spot but plan to re-sign him next week. Currently he's a FA though. Interesting...
Hold the phone, looks like we're swooping in and getting him.

That is nice. Parry probably gone. He had really nice bull rush sack on Rodgers on Sunday. Thanks for the memories?

I like what I've seen from Parry so far. Johnson is more of a 3 tech and would be behind Richardson. Parry is more of a NT and would be behind Joseph I would think. Maybe not. It's either Parry, Jaleel or Holmes. I would think it's Parry. Unless they are cutting another position because a DT is banged up and we dont know about it

Agreed, it'll probably be Parry.

They'll probably cut an Olineman. :lol:

How old is Parry though? He's been around a few years, at least, yeah?

Someone on Twitter mentioned another possibility that makes sense. Could this be the end of the road for Sherels? I mean,from a team standpoint it makes sense. He's buried on the DB depth chart and we have other players who can return punts. I love Sherels, but I could see it happening.

According to the depth chart, Parry is behind Jaleel Johnson (and Linval of course) on the depth chart. So, he still makes a ton of sense too.

Either way, we're going to lose someone with talent. Our roster is stacked.

Looks like it's Coley. I guessed him once. :tongue: One more cut to go for Tom Johnson.

Coley makes sense. The Vikings don't even have 3 receivers, let alone 6.

Thought this thread title was funny.
The Vikings replaced Tom Johnson with Sheldon Richardson. The Seahawks replaced Sheldon Richardson with Tom Johnson. Tom Johnson is now Sheldon Richardson's back up on the Vikings. (self.nfl)

haha that is great. It's a good feeling that we are on the good end of that now. It was the opposite for quite some time

Dalvin didn't practice today (updated from earlier). Team doesn't seem concerned.

Griffen didn't practice (knee).

Elflein practiced in full. :v):

Good news for Elflien. No news with Griffen because he always seems to do this and be fine Sunday. Bad news for Dalvin. I say this because they're either worried about something more than cramps or they're pampering him, which, in my opinion, burns you in the long run. I hope I'm wrong, but get your #### to practice and push through it.

Mark my words, Cook will not play. I am getting concerned about his ability to stay healthy.
