Vikings waive Harrison Hand and Shaun Beyer, announce more roster moves

1 min read

The Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday announced the team has reduced its roster from 84 to the maximum of 80 ahead of the preseason finales for all NFL teams.

The Vikings waived cornerback Harrison Hand and tight end Shaun Beyer.

Hand, a fifth-round pick in 2020, appeared in 23 games and started the 2020 regular-season finale at Detroit. He recorded his lone career interception against Drew Brees the week before.

Beyer, an Iowa native and former Hawkeye, joined Minnesota in July.

Linebacker Ryan Connelly, an Eden Prairie native, and receiver Blake Proehl were placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Connelly and Proehl have been rehabbing injuries from a year ago and opened training camp on the Active/PUP list.

The Vikings are scheduled to close the preseason at 8 p.m. (CT) Saturday against the Broncos in Denver.

All NFL teams must reduce their rosters from 80 to the NFL regular-season maximum of 53 by Tuesday, Aug. 30.

Teams can then establish their 16-player practice squads on Aug. 31.
