(WGEM) -- Professional football is sometimes all about the numbers game.

It seems like James Vandenberg got caught in it.

He was one of four quarterbacks in search of earning roster spots with the Minnesota Vikings.

In the end, Vandenberg has lost out on his first bid to make an NFL roster after being one of 13 cuts by the Vikings on Monday.

He appeared in one preseason game against the Houston Texans and completed all three of his pass attempts for a total of 18 yards.

But Vandenberg did not take another snap and did not play in Minnesota's last two games.

He joins Quincy's Jack Cornell as the second area camp casualty in the last two days.
