The Hammer’s Final 53 | 2018 Edition

24 Aug The Hammer’s Final 53 | 2018 Edition

Much like last year, I believe I will name the 53 players that I personally would have representing the Minnesota Vikings this season if I was calling the shots.  There are a couple items in this list that may or may not pan out (I have to assume Ade Aruna tore his ACL and will be placed on IR for example).  Judging the injury situations as best as I can, this is how the Vikings roster and practice squad would look in a perfect world where The Hammer is in charge.  I’m always curious to see just how close Rick Speilman ends up being to my 53.  At any rate, this would be my Minnesota Vikings roster on opening day:
