MINNEAPOLIS—The Minnesota Vikings released its 53-man roster Saturday and it includes former Concordia College receiver Brandon Zylstra.

Zylstra, a 6-foot-2, 215-pounder from Spicer, Minn., joins Stefon Diggs, Stacy Coley, Adam Thielen and Laquon Treadwell as the receivers listed on the Vikings 53-man roster.

From 2013 to 2015, Zylstra had 1,932 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns playing in 29 games.

Zylstra signed a reserve/future contract with the Vikings last winter after dominating for two seasons in the Canadian Football League. He led the CFL with 1,687 receiving yards last season, prompting his move to the NFL.

Zylstra returned to practice last week after a hamstring injury caused him to miss significant time toward the end of training camp.
