Vikings To Release G Mike Remmers

The Vikings are releasing starting guard Mike Remmers, Tom Pelissero of tweets. This figures to be the first of several offensive line moves as the Vikings look to fortify their front five. 

Remmers inked a five-year, $30MM deal with the Vikings in March of 2017. Releasing him will save Minnesota $4.55MM in 2019 against $1.8MM in dead money.

Remmers worked as the Panthers’ starting right tackle from 2014-16, but he moved to right guard towards the end of the ’17 campaign with the Vikings. He hasn’t necessarily lived up to his deal, but the 29-year-old (30 in April) should still draw interest as a free agent.

In other Vikings news, the club declined to pick up the option on safety Andrew Sendejo.
