  • Vikings' Josh Metellus: Limited to special teams

    Metellus didn't have a tackle in Sunday's overtime loss to the Bengals.

    He played 18 snaps, all on special teams. He begins the season as a reserve safety and may be limited to special teams barring injuries to starters.

  • Vikings' Josh Metellus: Bumps to active roster

    The Vikings promoted Metellus to the active roster from the practice squad Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The rookie sixth-round pick looks like he'll get a chance to make his NFL debut against the Colts on Sunday. If the Vikings choose to make him active, Metellus could contribute on special teams and as a depth safety.

  • Josh Metellus: Draft pick cut loose

    Metellus was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The Vikings took 15 players in the 2020 NFL Draft, so it shouldn't be entirely surprising to see Metellus, the team's second sixth-round selection, hit the waiver wire. The expectation is Metellus will land on the team's practice squad, though it's possible a team in need of rangy secondary depth could look to pick up the Michigan product instead.

  • Vikings' Josh Metellus: Lands with Minnesota

    The Vikings selected Metellus in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 205th overall.

    Minnesota added to its depth at safety with the Metellus addition. Metellus was a three-year starter in Michigan's stout defense and was named Honorable Mention All-Big 10 as a senior after picking up 74 tackles and two interceptions. He tested well at the combine, too, stamping a 124-inch broad jump and a 36.5-inch vertical. He also clocked in with a 4.55 40-yard dash. Anthony Harris is playing under the franchise tag, and if a new deal doesn't get done, Metellus could be the Vikings' next starting free safety in 2021.
