Pruitt, 24, was taken in the fifth-round of last year’s NFL draft. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.51 million contract and set to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2016 season.
The Vikings elected to cut him loose on Tuesday to make room for QB Taylor Heinicke, who was activated from the non-football-injury list.
In 2016, Pruitt appeared in two games and caught one pass for seven yards receiving and no touchdowns.
