August 30th, 2008 – 4:46 PM by Judd Zulgad

The Vikings cut their roster by 20 players and placed safety Michael Boulware on injured reserve to get to the regular-season limit of 53. Here are the players who were let go in the final cuts: (Left tackle Bryant McKinnie has been placed on the reserve/suspended list.) We’ll have more analysis up on the blog as soon as we digest the roster and write a few things for the daily paper.

We had heard David Herron was going to be among the cuts but that was not the case. Herron remains on the roster.
