WINTER PARK, MN - Recent Air Force Academy graduate Austin Cutting is in position to become the Minnesota Vikings long snapper this season.

After a recent transaction, the seventh round pick is currently the only player at the position left on the roster.

The former Falcon would become the academy's first active player to suit up in a regular season National Football League game.

Should he make the team, he'd join 49ers offensive lineman Ben Garland and Saints tight end Garrett Griffin as current AFA players in the NFL.

"It has definitely been an experience the past few months, just going through everything like graduation from Air Force Academy," Cutting said.

"That was a big one and once we were able to do that and get me out here, it has just been taking little steps to where I am. It has been a great experience, something I wouldn't trade."
