The Vikings announced this evening that they have released 11 players, including tight end Brandon Bostick and running back Joe Banyard.

Bostick is best known for being the player who mishandled an onside kick for the Packers in last year’s NFC title game, leading to a loss in Seattle.

Banyard rushed for 88 yards last season and he scored the game-sealing touchdown in Saturday night’s win against the Cowboys.

The Vikings also cut cornerbacks Jalil Carter, Justin Coleman and DeMarcus Van Dyke, wide receivers DaVaris Daniels and Jordan Leslie, offensive tackle Stephen Goodin, linebacker Josh Kaddu and defensive linemen Crishon Rose and Caesar Rayford.

The Vikings now have 78 players on their active roster and must get down to 75 by Tuesday’s NFL deadline at 3 p.m. CDT
