The Minnesota Vikings cut guard Ed Ta'umu, a fourth-round draft choice, yesterday.
Ta'umu is a former Iolani School and Utah standout who went as high as second-team on the Vikings' depth chart before being released.
The 6-foot-1, 335-pound Ta'umu was cut to make room for former Dallas place-kicker Tim Seder, who was claimed off waivers.
Ta'umu was the taken 132nd overall in the draft.
The Vikings brass expected him to push for a reserve role at both guard positions.
