Roster projections:

Analysis: I wouldn't be surprised if the Vikings looked at free agent safeties either. Marcus Epps is someone they can develop right now. They probably won't make more than two or three waiver claims, so Epps may earn a role on the 53-man roster and play special teams. His potential versatility as a cornerback is a big key for him. It is more important for the team to focus on signing a cornerback and wide receiver. I like some of the flashes I've seen from Derron Smith, specifically in coverage. I won't be surprised if he makes the squad, but I think this move gives them the most initial flexibility until they make post-roster cut signings.

Also to note: Epps, Allen, and Yarbrough all stood side by side last night in a sort of Pokes reunion thing. And the three acted as if they were still back here in Laramie.
