- VIKINGS RELEASE WR MICHAEL JENKINS -
 
The Minnesota Vikings have decided to part ways with wide receiver Michael Jenkins, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting. Jenkins was due a $2.425 million roster bonus on March 16 after restructuring his… deal before the 2012 season. Jenkins had 40 catches for 449 yards and two touchdowns while playing every game and starting eight for the Vikings in 2012. It was his second year with the team after leaving the Falcons as a free agent in 2011.  According to Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com, cutting Jenkins now saves the team about $3.25 million under the cap and it wouldn’t be the least bit surprising to see them use a chunk of that to find some help at receiver for next season.
