The Minnesota Vikings have informed Alexander Mattison that the running back will be released after five seasons, according to a source.

Mattison failed to secure the starting job following the departure of Dalvin Cook.

The move will save the Vikings $3.35 million against their 2024 cap. Had he remained on the roster past March 15, Mattison would have had $2.75 million guaranteed for the 2024 season.

Mattison was a third-round pick in 2019.
