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.

  • As a Bears fan and a somewhat biased blogger, I cannot help but smile when I see him get released. Please don't get me wrong, I wish the best for him, but I can't help the fact that he wanted a truck load of money from the Bears that he didn't deserve. Ever since his departure from the Bears, he has never been the same. I wish him all the best, but I am glad that it worked out the Bears.
