Carter Tops Cut List

The Vikings didn't hold off much suspense with their cuts, dropping 13 players Saturday night.

The Vikings reduced their roster by 13 players Saturday, with safety Tyrone Carter heading the list of cuts.

Carter was given an injury settlement, which means he can be re-signed after Week 6 -- at which time he should be healthy after suffering a sprained knee vs. the Falcons.

Other players cut include wide receivers Ben Nelson, Lane Danielsen and Ryan Hoag, cornerbacks Derek Ross, Jermaine Mays and Horace Willis, running back Butchie Wallace, safety Oliver Celestin, long snapper Brody Liddiard and offensive linemen Billy Conaty and Anthony Herrera.

In addition to the cuts, the Vikings also placed TE Richard Angulo on injured reserve.

While the Vikings are said to be in the market for a backup safety, as of right now all eight draftees from April have made the team.
