The Minnesota Vikings have terminated the contract of starting right guard Josh Kline after just one season.
The move was made about an hour into the official start of free agency. The Vikings will save about $1.5 million in salary-cap charges, but they'll have to carry forward about $4.5 million in dead money.
Kline started 15 of 18 games, including two in the playoffs. He missed two games because of a concussion and one to a foot injury. Kline previously played for New England and Tennessee. He signed a three-year contract with the Vikings prior to last season that came with $7.25 million guaranteed.
