Alexander Hollins: Plays six games in rookie year

Hollins recorded two catches for 46 yards over six games in 2019.

Analysis: Hollins spent the first three months on the Vikings' practice squad, and he was promoted to the active roster in December since Adam Thielen was dealing with a nagging hamstring injury. The undrafted rookie barely played until the season finale, when he logged a 98-percent snap share since the team was resting its starters. Hollins is an exclusive-rights free agent in March, and it seems likely he'll be retained, although he'll need to battle for a depth role in 2020.

Alexander Hollins: Leads team in receiving yards

Hollins caught two of three targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 21-19 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Receiving his first extended playing time of the season, Hollins led the team in receiving yards while tying for third in receptions. Most of his damage was done on a 35-yard connection with Sean Mannion, but the latter's inability to lead the offense efficiently limited his upside. Hollins doesn't figure to play much of a role in the postseason, aside from special teams.

Alexander Hollins: Bumps to 53-man roster

The Vikings promoted Hollins to the active roster from the practice squad Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Hollins' promotion to the active roster was expected, with Adam Thielen (hamstring) not suiting up against the Seahawks on Monday. He'll provide the Vikings with receiver depth behind Stefon Diggs, Bisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell. The undrafted rookie's spot on the 53-man squad comes following the placement of Ben Gedeon (concussion) on injured reserve.

Alexander Hollins: Likely to join active roster

The Vikings are expected to promote Hollins to the active roster from the practice squad Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hollins will get a chance on the 53-man roster with Adam Thielen (hamstring) missing another contest. The undrafted rookie out of Eastern Illinois stands to play a reserve role behind Stefon Diggs, Bisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell during Monday's tilt against the Seahawks.

Alexander Hollins: Exits Minnesota

Hollins was waived by the Vikings on Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: No surprise here, as Hollins was considered a long shot to land on the team's final roster. His only action in the preseason came in the Vikings' final game. He hauled in two receptions for 17 yards in the contest. The undrafted rookie will now look for a new opportunity.
