EAGAN, Minn. (FOX9) - The Minnesota Vikings announced Monday they have terminated the contract for offensive lineman Mike Remmers and declined the option for safety Andrew Sendejo, making both players free agents.
Remmers was part of the often maligned offensive line that saw the Vikings go 8-7-1 and miss the playoffs one year after appearing in the NFC Championship game. According to Pro Football Focus, Remmer ranked 51st out of 88 qualifying guards in his 2018 overall grade.
The Vikings were the No. 30-ranked rushing offense in the NFL last season. Quarterback Kirk Cousins was also sacked 40 times, the second-most in his career.
Sendejo totaled 21 tackles in five games before an injury ended his 2018 season.
The Vikings also announced they tendered safety Anthony Harris, and offensive tackle Rashod Hill.
Harris made nine starts last season, a career-high, with Sendejo battling an injured groin. He finished the 2018 season with three interceptions and 48 tackles. Since joining the Vikings in 2015, he has played in 51 games with 17 starts.
Hill is entering his fourth NFL season and appeared in every game this season for the Vikings, with eight starts. He has 28 career games with the Vikings, including 15 starts.
