The Minnesota Vikings lost Janarius Robinson to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday afternoon which freed a spot on their practice squad.
With that move being made, the Vikings made two corresponding moves by bringing in wide receiver Reggie Roberson for a visit and defensive tackle Khalik Davis for a tryout.

Roberson is a rookie from Southern Methodist that specializes in speed. He tore his ACL during the 2020 season which hindered him somewhat during the 2021 season. He is a true deep-threat receiver that is great after the catch. He also is a solid punt returner which could be intriguing for the Vikings to add to the practice squad. He spent some time with the Tennessee Titans during camp and the preseason.
Davis comes in at 6’1″ and 308 pounds but has a really nice athletic profile. He has a really nice 10-yard split which has become a theme with general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah. His 10-yard split comes in at 1.66 seconds which ranks in the 97.6 percentile. The 20-yard and 40-yard are also in the 99th percentile. Davis spent time with the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers over the past two sesaons.
It’s always good to know that the Vikings are continuing to try and find talent.
