The Minnesota Vikings took it to the deadline, and announced their final 53-man roster moments after they were required to make the cut. While fans can debate endlessly over who should have made the cut and who should have stayed, it's clear that the process isn't done—the Vikings can target any number of players who have been released by other teams.
