One of the best receivers in the recent history of the CFL has been waived by his NFL team.
Brandon Zylstra was cut by his hometown Minnesota Vikings today after spending the entire 2018 season with the club. He recorded one reception as an NFL rookie for 23 yards.

The Vikings kept just four receivers on the active roster, which may be an indication they hope to bring the former CFL receiver onto the practice roster.
Zylstra recorded 134 receptions for 2,195 yards and eight touchdowns in just 22 games with Edmonton.
