Cut by Minnesota

The Vikings waived Stanley (undisclosed) on Tuesday.

Analysis: Stanley's dismissal leaves Kirk Cousins, Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond as the quarterbacks left on Minnesota's offseason roster. As a rookie seventh-round draft pick in 2020, Stanley spent his first professional season on Minnesota's practice squad. He resided on the Vikings' injured reserve list for the entirety of the 2021 campaign.

Stanley will remain on IR for all of 2021 barring an injury settlement, while Minnesota heads into the regular season with Kellen Mond as the primary backup to Kirk Cousins.

Inks future deal

The Vikings will sign Stanley to a reserve/future contract, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: The Vikings selected Stanley in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The Iowa product was unable to make the team and instead occupied the practice squad all season. The 23-year-old will compete to be Kirk Cousin's backup in 2021.

Cast aside by Vikings

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

Analysis: The 2020 seventh-round selection was always viewed as a likely practice squad candidate so this designation shouldn't be entirely surprising. Stanley certainly has plenty of tools to develop into an athletic quarterback and is expected to get that opportunity to grow on the Vikings' practice squad.
