Former All-Pro linebacker Eric Kendricks has been released by the Minnesota Vikings in what appears to be a salary cap move.

By cutting Kendricks, the Vikings will save $9.5million against the salary cap during the 2023 season. Kendricks was entering the final year of his contract with no guaranteed money left.

Kendricks has spent his entire NFL career with the Vikings, after being taken in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

For his career, Kendricks had 137 tackles, eight tackles for loss, a sack, two quarterback hits and six deflected passes.
