 Sloter: “I just weighed my options, and felt like Minnesota was the best opportunity for me to further my career, it just made the most sense financially. They were really aggressive with coming after me, and I think for any player it means a lot when a team comes after you like that. They put their money where their mouth was, and that meant a lot to me. They told me they weren’t focusing their efforts on any other quarterback. They told me that they watched all of my snaps during this preseason, and also as far as going back and watching all my college tapes. It just felt like a place where I was wanted.”

The Vikings have waived TE Bucky Hodges with an injury designation.

The article says he has a concussion.  Pretty surprised by this one as I think he had as much or more potential than a lot of our other picks this year.

This saddens me.  He can jump well, and has good hands.  I was hoping thy would keep him and develop him into another go-to-guy on 3rd down and in the red zone.  I hope that somehow he'll decide to stay with The Vikings after not being claimed and getting on IR, and coming off it after the concussion protocol.

Yes, if he clears waivers, he would revert to injured reserve.  However, the team can come to an injury settlement with him to release him from IR if they so choose.

Damn, that's terrible news for Bucky. Hope he clears waivers and we end up being able to keep him.

Hodges cleared waivers and is now on IR 

Can he be IR/designated to return? Not sure how that works with waived players.

Whats the scoop on the new TE? Do the 49ers have other good TEs or why did they release him? I thought I heard they traded one also.

No way we waste the return designation on him. I'm sure we are just stashing him on IR to save room on the PS.

I mean, he can be, but it won't happen. Just another way of stashing a player without another team being able to snag him. He can work out, and be in the facility being able to learn a little more also. Won't be practicing tho.
