The Minnesota Vikings have waived wide receiver Bernard Berrian.
Berrian was let go Tuesday. He had a meeting scheduled with coach Leslie Frazier, who hinted the move was coming while explaining Sunday why Berrian was on the inactive list for the second time in three games.
Berrian is a vested veteran, so the Vikings must pay him all of his $1.9 million salary unless another team claims him. He took a pay cut to stay this year after two substandard seasons, but this year was more of the same.
Rookie wide receiver Stephen Burton was elevated from the practice squad to take Berrian's place on the active roster. Also, defensive end Cedric McKinley was released from the practice squad, leaving two open spots there.
