Should Poling clear waivers on Tuesday, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list.
Poling, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2018. He was waived coming out of the preseason last year and later signed to Miami’s practice squad.
The Dolphins brought Poling back on a futures contract only to waive him with an injury designation. After reverting to Miami’s injured reserve list, Poling was waived with a settlement.
From there, Poling caught on with the Raiders last year. He returned to Las Vegas this past February but was waived following this year’s draft.
The Vikings just recently signed Poling to a contract.
During his four-year college career at Ohio, Poling recorded 373 tackles, 18 sacks, seven interceptions, two defensive touchdowns, five forced fumbles and two recoveries.
