Kidder, 23, signed a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Montana this past May. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the agreement when the Vikings cut him loose a few days ago.
During his college career at Montana, Kidder recorded 165 tackles, 22.5 tackles for a loss, 10.5 sacks, three fumble recoveries, two blocks and 13 pass defenses over the course of 31 games.
