Vikings waive Dillon to open roster spot
The Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday waived rookie tight end Brandon Dillon. The Carroll High School and Marian University product earned a spot on the 53-man roster out of training camp and played seven offensive snaps in the Vikings’ 28-12 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in the season’s opening week.
The Vikings waived Dillon to make room for center Brett Jones. The team signed the free agent on Tuesday.
Dillon is on waivers and could be picked up by another team. If he is unclaimed, the Vikings could bring him back as part of their practice squad.
