Not bad, I thought they might go with a cheaper option like Keenum. He's an accurate passer (~60%) but needs to cut down on turnovers. Not starting caliber by any means but hopefully can fill in a few games in a pinch.



Hopefully he's NOT needed for pinch duty!

Quigley - yes. As for Symmank? Not in the NFL, but probably in college. Cannot say for certain since I didn't watch any Texas Tech games in 2015/16.

I think like 5-7. This year since we may not have a 1st rounder, it might be even less for us.

Which is why you don't keep signing other proven scrub backups. Just like Hill, he isn't doing anything meaningful if Bradford goes down. Draft a guy, keep the young guy you have and work with him. Don't just sign other teams castoffs because they can be semi-competent if necessary. It's even more likely they'll pass on some guy in the draft now, because they signed Quarterback X in free agency and by golly he'll give us some solid snaps. :roll:

Look around the league. Most NFL backups are what?? Other teams castoffs, with some young guys mixed in. Derek Anderson, Blaine Gabbert, Drew Stanton, Matt Barkley, Matt Moore, Brian Hoyer, Chase Daniel, Josh McCown, Chad Henne, Matt Schaub, Luke McCown, Kellen Clemens, Colt McCoy, Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden, Case Keenum, Dan Orlovsky, Ryan Mallett, Scott Tolzien....

Thats more than half the league and I could go on. I agree I wouldnt mind drafting a guy but every team out there puts a veteran castoff on their team. This isn't something new. It's not like the Vikings are doing something out of the ordinary. And by the looks of it lately, the only young guys out there that are backups that look like they could possibly start somewhere else are Garappolo and McCarron. Outside of that, the young talent isn't very impressive. Like I said, these guys are backups for a reason and this league has a huge shortage of good QBs. They don't just grow on trees. I would say Keenum is probably one of the better backups out there just because of the recent starting experience and age.

ESPN:TCU tackle Aviante Collins headlines Vikings' rookie free agent class

Get to know the UDFAs.

Quote:
Aviante Collins, T, TCU: Collins stood out with eye-popping workout numbers at the combine, and he comes from rich athletic stock; his father, Bill, was a legendary sprinter at TCU who later became a mentor for James Cooper, Adrian Peterson's trainer. The younger Collins ran a 4.81-second 40-yard dash at the combine, and put up 34 reps at 225 pounds in the bench press. He'll get a chance to make the roster after the Vikings decided not to draft a tackle.


Tashawn Bower, DE, LSU: The Vikings gave the LSU defensive end a $15,000 signing bonus, and guaranteed $30,000 of his base salary for 2017. General manager Rick Spielman talked about making a stronger commitment to undrafted free agents, and Bower caught the Vikings' eye as a pass-rusher they could mold. He needs to use his hands more effectively, but defensive line coach Andre Patterson has coaxed quick progress out of young linemen like Bower in the past.

To boost spirits about our O-line, here are some undrafted free agent success stories:

- Larry Little - Guard/Tackle - 1967
- Joe Jacoby - Tackle - 1981
- Nate Newton - Gaurd - 1986
- Brian Waters - Guard - 2000
- Jason Peters - Tackle - 2004

Cross your fingers.

Not very explosive. Slow in run blocking unless it's a down-block. Pass-pro is decent, but I don't know how much he was challenged. Have it, Sparano.

Just a bad picture selection. He played on UCLA too, not sure why he switched.
