Vikings

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer explained that their decision to cut WR Mike Wallace had more to do with money than his play.

“It was more about money than anything else,” Zimmer said on Wednesday, via Ben Goessling of ESPN. “I thought he was a great kid. … Every day he comes to practice; he works. Even when he’s frustrated, he doesn’t really say he’s frustrated.

Zimmer added that they’re not necessarily in the market to add another veteran receiver after parting ways with Wallace.

“We had a receiver here that was making a lot of money that really didn’t do what we needed to do,” Zimmer said. “So I don’t know that it’s a necessity to go out and sign another wide receiver. We’ve got to get better with the guys we’ve got, and we’ve got to fix other areas that can allow these receivers to be more effective in the games.”
