Vikings Place QB Mike Kafka On Season-Ending I.R.

The Minnesota Vikings officially placed QB Mike Kafka on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday, according to the NFL Transactions release.

The Vikings waived Kafka with an injured designation as they trimmed their roster down 75 players. However, he wound up going unclaimed, and was reverted to the team’s injured reserve list.

Kakfa, 28, is a former fourth round pick of the Eagles back in 2010. Since then Kafka has played for a number of teams including the Patriots, Jaguars, and Buccaneers before signing on with the Vikings back in April.

Minnesota signed him to a one-year $660,000 contract back in April

Kafka hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2011 season when he was playing for the Eagles.

“Minnesota signed him to a one-year $660,000 contract back in April” Signing a one year contract and putting that player on IR for the entire year sounds like a REALLY STUPID MOVE.

Obviously, not an ideal scenario, but team’s do this to keep guys they like around for another year. It’s just a minimum salary anyways, so it won’t hurt them from a financial standpoint. MIN will likely sign him to a future/reserve contract in Dec/Jan.
