Vikings might be a QB away from finally

As reports swirl Rick Spielman says there is no decision on Vikings QB saga

Teddy Bridgewater is just one of the three Vikings quarterbacks who don't know where they'll be playing next season. "If you pick the wrong one, this whole thing can go downhill".

He also said there have been ongoing conversations with the agents for Keenum, Bradford and Bridgewater.

Sam Bradford has had a hard time staying healthy since entering the league in 2010 with the St. Louis Rams. Quarterback Josh McCown is at the top of the list, and he has expressed interest in returning as a bridge for a rookie quarterback if the team drafts one. Then really what we have to try to do is figure out what is the best scenario for us and understanding that trying to answer these questions on these three guys and try to go from there.

Without the three veteran signal-callers, the Vikings are expected to enter free agency with a clean slate at the position, and recent reports have indicated that they may be the frontrunners to sign the biggest name in this year's class of free agent quarterbacks. Zimmer did not address Cousins directly because that would be against National Football League rules, but he made a reference to the reports the Vikings want him.

The 25-year-old, who was selected by the Vikings 32nd overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, was expected to be the quarterback of the current and future in Minnesota after putting up back-to-back solid campaigns in 2014 and 2015. "I'd say I'm more productive at left tackle because that's where I took all the reps this year, but my redshirt freshman year I was interchanged right to left".

We have tried to show in recent weeks that it is possible to build a complete team that is not so quarterback-driven, but the QB position will always occupy a general manager's mind.

"Nowadays you get a lot of the quicker [defensive tackles], they aren't just powerful, they are also quick..."

"I would have to go with Case Keenum, because he's the guy who did it previous year", Tomasson said. Rudolph told KFAN that he underwent surgery recently on his right ankle, which he injured during a game at Carolina.

Keenum led the Vikings to the NFC Championship game, a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, just a week after the Minneapolis Miracle against the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional round.

"I don't think the Vikings have ruled out internally any possibilities for what they'll do at quarterback", Seifert said. Can you believe he's going to play the 15 games he did two years ago or he's going to play the one game where he hit the turf this year?

After missing most of this past season with a knee injury, the 30-year-old was activated for the playoffs, meaning he should be back at 100 per cent. Bridgewater is set to become an unrestricted free agent allowing him to sign with any team that he chooses.

"Laquon needs to get out of his own way", Zimmer said, via NFL.com.

"We have to go back a lot with Teddy on what he's done in the past, him as a person, his work ethic, all those things". "This kid is a great competitor".
