Henson, Lowber cut

The Vikings just announced the release of eight players, including quarterback Drew Henson and wide receiver Todd Lowber.

Henson spent the final four weeks of last season on the Vikings' practice squad and played in seven games with the Dallas Cowboys in 2004.

Lowber, a former college basketball player and track star, signed a three-year contract with the Vikings in April.

Also released were defensive tackle Joe Bradley, guard Josh Day, defensive tackle Alex Guerrero, linebacker John Kerr, punter Alex Reyes and cornerback Jerron Wishom.

The moves leave the Vikings with 79 players on the roster. All NFL teams must be at 75 by Tuesday.

Not surprised about most of these decisions. Kerr seemed gimpy lately and was passed up by recent signees George Hall & Cameron Siskowic (although Siskowic was cut earlier today).

Lowber best I can recall never even got in a game . . . I guess the guy was fast but had issues with his hands & route running. They're referring to him as "practice squad" material but frankly if there's only 1 or 2 WRs on the practice squad I'd like to see someone more polished . . . especially on the off-chance that Allison or Nance don't make the team.
