Vikings Release Bryant McKinnie Because Of Weight

Now LT Bryant McKinnie can spend more time working on Serena Williams budding rap career. McKinnie was release by the Vikings reportedly due to his weight. McKinnie was placed on the non-football injury list at the start of training camp after doctors said not only did he need to lose weight, his cholesterol was too high.

McKinnie claims that’s not the whole story. He released his own statement via TMZ:

McKinnie tells us, his agent put in word with the Vikings moments ago — before they officially cut him loose — asking honchos to release McKinnie… so he can sign with another team before next season.

Anyway, the move saves the Vikings $5.4 million plus puts them closer to getting under the $120 Million salary cap.

Well, now there’s more time for the ladies. Just joking, I’m sure he’ll be scooped up by a team quickly. Rumors are circulating that the Bears might be interested.
