Zimmer, Vikings still sorting through QB situation

Rick Spielman: Vikings haven't made any decisions at QB

Neither 2015 starter Teddy Bridgewater, 2016 starter Sam Bradford nor 2017 starter Case Keenum is under contract for 2018.

But the Vikings are slated to pick 30th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, so landing one of the top rookies, such as Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold or others, is looking quite grim. All three are "definitely" options to consider, according to Zimmer.

"Just to be clear, there have been no decisions made - I know there have been a thousand reports out there - on how we're going to move forward", Spielman said.

Sam Bradford has had a hard time staying healthy since entering the league in 2010 with the St. Louis Rams.

Former Arizona State running back Kalen Ballage knows the Broncos better than most prospects in the upcoming draft. "I want to be really careful from taking away from our strength and saying, 'OK, we're not going to be able to do this and do that anymore because of financial reasons or something else".

Set to become one of the hottest free-agent running backs in recent memory, the market for Bell would be just about every team in the league.

Speculation is rampant when it comes to what the Vikings will do this offseason in relation to the quarterback position, but Zimmer added that nothing is certain heading into the March 14 opening of National Football League free agency.

He added that the Vikings have learned "how to win with different kinds of quarterbacks" due to the injuries they've dealt with at the position since 2016, starting with Bridgewater's dislocated knee. "I have a crystal ball, but I didn't bring it with him, and it didn't tell me whether he's going to stay healthy or not".

At 33 years old, some teams may not be as interested in Johnson as they might younger prospects, but there is no denying that he is a starting caliber player who can be used to hold down a spot until a long-term answer can be found. Is Case the guy that played for the Rams or the guy that played for us?

Chadiha said that Cousins is a "very popular name", making him a likely target for multiple teams.

"I remember when I was in the game, he pointed at one of his receivers and made a little dance", Flowers recalled. Zimmer asked, neatly summing up the issues with all three Vikings free agents. He's got the heart of a lion - a champion.

Zimmer is 39-25 as the Vikings' coach, including NFC North titles in two of the past three seasons and a 13-3 record in 2017. "Gives me and us, our organization, an opportunity to sit down face-to-face with all three of the quarterbacks' representatives. We'll see. We've still got some time". "He's a great kid, great competitor, a victor". Vikings athletic trainer Eric Sugarman "tells me he's doing great and he should be as good as new. better".

"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".
