Minneapolis, MN - With a new coaching regime comes new coaching philosophies and with those philosophies you're going to see a bit of a changing of the guard amongst the personnel. That's precisely what we saw today as Mike Zimmer trimmed down his first roster as a head coach in the NFL.
While there were your run of the mill undrafted free agents who were let go this afternoon, there were also a handful of veteran players released to move on to their next stop in the league. 
Long-time Vikings staples like Fred Evans and Jamarca Sanford (IR but eventually released) were released. Veteran free agent signings like Chris Crocker and Kurt Coleman were let go. And preseason standouts like Joe Banyard and Allen Reisner walked away from the squad as well.
Below is the full list of those released by the Vikings today. After the cuts, Minnesota was left with 10 DBs, 8 LBs, 3 QBs, 8 offensive linemen, 8 offensive linemen, 3 RBs, 2 FBs, 2 TEs and 5 WRs.
