Bradford on the Cardinals is a great scenario for him as long as our management thinks Bradford on the Vikings is done. I have no idea what way they will go but I will understand whatever route they choose (as long as it's 1 of our 3 guys).

Bradford was a stopgap from the beginning, I think. I don't think they'll try to retain him after the injury problems he's had.

I still believe that we can sign both Case and Teddy. A lot of people are saying we cant. My whole reasoning behind it....

Teddy cant go out there and say "Hey, I want $20 mill a year". How can he?? Nobody, including the Vikings know what they have in him until you see him in game action. So I feel like we can retain him for cheap. As for Case, his price tag will be high, especially if he wins a SB but I dont see it being way out of the park. I think it's possible we keep both Case and Teddy

I don't know ... I'm thinking both will want to start somewhere.

He's not going to up his value any more by sitting on the bench for 3 years though. There are a few different teams where either of them would be able to start, I think. Who knows though, perhaps they would both be ok with that situation.

If I were Case (and I don't lay an egg in the playoffs) I'd wait to see how the team handles Teddy before I signed. The team has shown how it feels about Bridgewater and we already know the fans will be clamoring to bring him in any time Case made a misstep if he were the starter. It just doesn't seem like a great situation when you could be the unquestioned starter somewhere.

Shurmer expected to take the Giants job, if offered. Per La Confora.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer expects to lose Shurmur, sources told Mortensen. Shurmur is also a candidate for the Arizona Cardinals job.

A source told ESPN on Monday afternoon that Shurmur wants the Giants job.
