The Minnesota Vikings announced a significant roster cut this Monday afternoon. The NFC North franchise is released a veteran wide receiver. That receiver is 30-year-old Albert Wilson. 

The Vikings announced on Monday afternoon that they're cutting veteran wide receiver Albert Wilson. Wilson recently caught two touchdown passes from Kellen Mond in the team's preseason opener. However, he was targeted just once in Minnesota's second preseason game vs. the San Francisco 49ers. 

The Vikings are now moving on from the veteran wideout. Wilson, 30, should be able to find a new home ahead of the 2022 season. 

"The Vikings on Monday announced the contract for receiver Albert Wilson has been terminated. The team also announced defensive lineman Jullian Taylor has been waived with an injury designation. Wilson caught both touchdown passes thrown by Kellen Mond in Minnesota's preseason opener at Las Vegas. He was targeted once against San Francisco," the team announced.

Albert Wilson is entering his eighth year in the NFL. In seven seasons Wilson has caught 218 passes for 2,499 yards and 12 touchdowns. He started five games for the Miami Dolphins last year. 

It's highly likely Wilson finds a new home ahead of the 2022 season. The Vikings, meanwhile, will have to make several more roster cuts to get down to the necessary number.
