Vikings waive a pair of undrafted rookies

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings continued making minor roster adjustments Thursday, cutting offensive tackle Kevin Murphy and cornerback C.C. Whitlock.

Murphy, a rookie from Harvard, was signed earlier in the week. Whitlock, from South Carolina, agreed to terms with Minnesota as a rookie free agent after going undrafted in April.

The moves bring the Vikings’ roster to 78 players, well under the 90-man limit. But Minnesota also hopes to begin signing some of its 10 draft picks beginning as soon as this week.
