Vikings will cut TE John Carlson, per source. Sides had been talking about a restructure but couldn't reach an agreement.
Carlson had a nice stretch after Kyle Rudolph went down, posting #5 TE numbers from Week 10 to Week 13. He missed the last three games of the season due to a concussion. It's possible that the Packers could be interested in his services as he should be a cheap option in free agency.
