The Vikings continued to clear space under the salary cap, restructuring the contract of punter Britton Colquitt, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN. The move will clear another $1.4 million in cap room and comes a day after the Vikings released left tackle Riley Reiff. That took $11.75 million off the books.

The Vikings released kicker Dan Bailey two days ago, after the two sides could not agree on a restructure. That move cleared $1.7 million.

The Vikings have $8.73 million in cap space, according to the Over The Cap website.
