Doubt Boone or Reiff will see playing time at Seattle. Who will we see at Boone's spot?

Nick Easton, Pat Elflein or Sirles

@christomasson
5h
#Vikings sign former Golden Gophers QB Mitch Leidner.

@christomasson
27m
Taylor Heinicke didn't practice today which explains Mitch Leidner signing. Brian Robison limped off all other Vikings back at least limited

Per Tomasson, Heinike has a small injury and will miss only a few practices. Doctors don't want him throwing. Got hurt diving.

Gee thanks, Warren.

Warren Moon says QB controversy possible if Vikings get off to slow start
“I think Sam’s going to get a chance to really show what he can do because probably Teddy can’t come back for the first six games if they put him on (the physically unable to perform list to start the season). So the Vikings will have a pretty good indication of which direction they want to go based on how (Bradford) starts the season.’’

Bridgewater, who suffered a torn left ACL and dislocated knee last August and missed the season, could go on the PUP list when 53-man rosters are set Sept. 2. However, Moon believes he will be healthy enough to play this season.

“People that I know that are really close to him say he’s not far away,’’ Moon said.

Isn't that obvious though? Maybe not whether or not Teddy will be healthy enough to play this season, but assuming he is, I definitely agree that the first half of the season is big for Bradford and his long-term future with the Vikings.
