The Vikings relesased cornerback and punt returner Marcus Sherels today.

It looks like the Vikings are content to stick with Mike Hughes returning punts, given that Sherels was a health scratch last Sunday against the Lions.

Nevertheless, this kinda sucks because as a Golden Gopher and then as a Viking, he was a beloved player here in Minnesota.

Sherels took five punts to the house during his 10 years in purple, averaging 10.5 yards per return.
