Eden Prairie, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Minnesota Vikings' offseason
house-cleaning continued on Thursday, when the team terminated the contract of
defensive tackle Letroy Guion and placed wide receiver Greg Childs on waivers.
Guion started 15 games for the Vikings in 2012 and 13 last year, but managed
just 21 tackles and one sack this past season and was due to count $4.3
million against the salary cap in 2014. The Vikings will clear $4 million in
space with the move.
The 26-year-old had spent his entire six-year career with Minnesota, having
been selected by the Vikings in the fifth round of the 2008 draft.
Childs was a fourth-round pick in 2012 who never played in a game with the
Vikings after tearing the patellar tendon in both of his knees during training
camp as a rookie.
Minnesota also released tight end John Carlson on Wednesday and cut loose
linebacker Erin Henderson last month.
