We reported to you earlier today that the Minnesota Vikings were going to release starting guard Mike Remmers, a move that had been widely anticipated (and is now official). However, it doesn’t appear as though that was the first course of action the Vikings wanted to take.

This was just tweeted out by Remmers’ agent, Brett Tessler:

Remmers had three years left on the five-year deal that he signed prior to the 2017 season.
