Josh Kline: Done in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings waived Kline on Wednesday.

Minnesota will be breaking in a new top guard to pair with Pat Elflein in 2020, as Kline started in all 13 of his appearances for the club in 2019. The 30-year-old's wealth of experience -- he's racked up 77 starts in 92 regular-season appearances during his seven-year career -- should allow him to find work elsewhere without too much trouble.
