Roster moves begin; Nance to be cut

August 29th, 2008 – 1:49 PM by Judd Zulgad

Some NFL teams have announced a few roster cuts today as they begin the process of getting down to the regular-season limit of 53 players. The Vikings probably won’t announce anything today but they have started informing some players that they are being let go.

Update: The Vikings have informed receiver Martin Nance he is going to be released. Nance had a solid training camp and could land on another team’s roster. This could mean the Vikings are going to keep five receivers.

Another player on the list is cornerback Brandon Sumrall, who was signed as a rookie free agent out of Southern Mississippi. Rosters must be down to 53 by 5 p.m. Saturday and the eight-man practice squad will be established on Sunday.
