Vikings waived TE A.C. Leonard.
Leonard was signed as an intriguing UDFA following May's draft. He's an athletic tight end who was a four-star recruit to Florida before off-field issues sent him to Tennessee State. Leonard left practice early last week with a "headache" and didn't return before getting his walking papers Wednesday. Wed, Aug 6, 2014 03:31:00 PM

Vikings signed Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard.

Leonard (6-foot-2, 252) was a four-star recruit to Florida in 2011, but dropped down a level after two arrests, including one for misdemeanor battery of his girlfriend. He stayed out of trouble in the FCS and caught 85 passes for 1,174 yards (13.8 YPR) and 11 touchdowns in two seasons with the TSU Tigers. At the Combine, Leonard ran a 4.50 forty -- fastest of all tight ends in Indy -- and an eye-catching 10-foot-8 broad jump. He is an explosive, playmaking "move" tight end with long arms (33"). Leonard is someone to monitor in Norv Turner's tight end-friendly offense.

Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard ran an official 4.50 forty-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

He was "unofficially" clocked as fast as 4.43, which would have been the third-fastest time for a tight end in Combine history. A former top high school recruit, Leonard transferred from Florida prior to the 2012 season due to off-field issues. He's on the shorter side at 6'2/252 but flashes the playmaking ability to develop into a "move" tight end. Leonard is a third-day draft prospect.
