Nance, Pinner, Blue, Smith and Edwards among the cuts

With the deadline fast approaching, the Vikings have informed more players that they will be released.

Interestingly, the Viking sonly kept five receivers, which could mean that they might add another in the coming days.

Receiver Martin Nance, who had a strong training camp, Jason Carter and seventh-round pick Chandler Williams were informed that they were released.

But the surprises were CB Dovonte Edwards, who had been a nickel for the Vikings before he suffered a season-ending arm injury last preseason, and RB Artose Pinner.

In addition, DE Khreem Smith got cut, along with DT Conrad Bolston. That means things look good for Fred Evans, the troubled DT who last played for the Miami Dolphins.

Also cut: S Greg Blue

* LB David Herron

* CB Chad Johnson

* QB Tyler Thigpen
