Remmers is progressing in his recovery from back surgery and is likely to sign with a team sometime after next week's draft, NFL Agent Brett Tessler reports.
Remmers was cut with a failed physical designation last month after undergoing minor back surgery earlier in the offseason. The 30-year-old started 27 games for the Vikings over the last two seasons.
Remmers (undisclosed) was cut under the failed physical designation, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
News broke early Monday that Remmers would be released with the reason unknown. It's assumed Remmers is dealing with injury, but in some cases, the player could still be fine. All-in-all the Oregon State product's release will free up $4.5 million in cap space for Minnesota.
Remmers played well at right tackle during his first season with the Vikings in 2017 but struggled after moving to right guard in 2018. The 29-year-old's release carries a $1.8 million dead cap hit for Minnesota and frees up $4.5 million in cap space.
Remmers (back) is active Sunday against Miami.
Remmers claimed his status was never in jeopardy despite being limited in practice all week. He should slot in as the starting right guard.
Remmers is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a back injury, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Remmers was a limited practice participant this week but didn't seem overly concerned by the injury, according to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The 29-year-old seems likely to be available Sunday, though Danny Isidora will should be ready to take over at right guard should be be unable to play.
