On Tuesday, Minnesota Vikings receiver Bernard Berrian was scheduled to meet with coach Leslie Frazier for the second time in two days about his future with the team. Apparently, that meeting did not go well despite Berrian saying Monday that he wanted to remain with the Vikings. NFL Networks Jason LaCanfora is reporting that the Vikings have placed Berrian, 30, on waivers.Berrian had been a healthy scratch in two of the past three games, including Sundays loss against the Green Bay Packers. On Monday, Frazier wouldnt reveal the reason for Berrians most recent deactivation. "There's just some things that he and I have to talk about to make sure that we get on the same page about what direction we want to go in," said Frazier of Berrian, who took a pay cut to stay with the team before training camp started. "And we're going to have a little meeting of the minds and see where we are." On Tuesday, Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway was asked about the reported release on KFANs morning radio program. That is a call that coach Frazier and the staff have made, Greenway said. If that is the case, I mean, I have no idea. I think what is tough from that perspective is, you know, he comes in and he does his deal for a one-year deal to come and help the team win, and obviously, I dont know if thats a product of the team not winning or whats going on. Thats a decision not for me to make, and coach Frazier does a great job of handing those personal situations and not embarrassing the guy but doing it in a very respectful way. So credit him for that. Coach Frazier is the one who is going to make the right decision. Berrian was also deactivated before the teams Week 5 game against Arizona because he reportedly missed two team meetings the day before. He returned to the lineup in Week 6 and had his best game of the season with five catches for 54 yards against his former team, the Chicago Bears, but did have a costly drop in the first quarter which would have resulted in a first down. Following Minnesotas Week 4 loss at Kansas City, Berrian engaged in a Twitter feud with several fans, including state representative John Kriesel, an advocate of a new Vikings stadium. But Frazier denied the Twitter controversy was the reason for Berrian's sitting the next week against Arizona. On Monday, Frazier wouldn't say if there were any new transgressions that led to the most recent deactivation. "Whatever transpired, it happened and then we had to make an alteration in our starting lineup, as you know," Frazier said after Berrian's named appeared on the initial pregame introduction sheet before being replaced by that of Michael Jenkins. "We did it based on some of the things that had happened." Berrian came to Minnesota as one of the top free-agent receivers in 2008 but hasn't lived up to his initial six-year, 42 million contract. One of his assertions on Twitter was that he's been "open for four years." But he hasn't developed a connection with any of the Vikings quarterbacks during that time, including Tarvaris Jackson, Brett Favre and Donovan McNabb this year. It's been frustrating," Berrian said Monday of his time in Minnesota. "It started off good and then it just kind of went downhill from there." Berrian came to Minnesota after catching a career-high 71 passes for 951 yards in 2007. He had 48 catches for 964 yards in 2008, then dropped to 55 catches for 618 yards in 2009 and 28 catches for 252 yards in 2010. This season, he had only seven receptions for 91 yards.
