EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Veteran tight end John Carlson is on the way out in Minnesota.
Carlson, who has spent the last two seasons with the Vikings, will be released, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.
The 29-year-old Carlson has had at least three concussions in the last three seasons, and after his latest concussion cut short his 2013 season, he acknowledged that he would have to consider calling it a career. But Garafolo reports that Carlson and the Vikings had been talking about a restructured contract, which suggests that Carlson still wants to play in the NFL.
Last year Carlson played in 13 games, catching 32 passes for 344 yards and a touchdown.
