Kline, 30, signed with the Vikings last offseason after playing six previous seasons with the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots.

Kline played in 13 regular-season games and both playoff games for Minnesota. Despite missing three games due to injury, he managed to play 71.7% of the team’s total offensive snaps.

Releasing Kline will save the Vikings $1,569,701 in the salary cap and will also give them $4,466,667 in dead money, per
