The Vikings waived Carter on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Carter was cut to make room for quarterback Sam Bradford (knee), who was activated off injured reserve in advance of Sunday's postseason opener against the Saints. The tight end appeared in three contests for Minnesota during the regular season but wasn't targeted across 28 offensive snaps.
