This is a good move. He was better as a back up. He fumbled too much last year for my liking.

Not torn up about this at all. There are some good options that will be available in free agency or in the draft

Production came nowhere near matching his cap hit so it made sense to release him, and even more sense given the relative production of some of the up-and-coming guys behind him on the roster. Liked him as a person for sure but KAM made the right call releasing him. Those dollars can now be allocated towards keeping other players the Vikings need to keep.
