Mike Zimmer believes he'll be fired if he picks wrong QB

Kirk Cousins free agency rumors Broncos intend to go 'all-in' on QB

Zimmer talked about his three quarterbacks Thursday at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis much more freely than the general manager did on Wednesday, which is understandable because Rick Spielman will be the one ultimately picking the Vikings' 2018 quarterback.

With Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater, and Sam Bradford all expected to hit the open market once the new league year starts on March 14, the Minnesota Vikings will only have Kyle Sloter returning from last year's quarterback corps. "The one thing we have to be careful about with Dalvin is, you know, we don't wear him out". Chad Graff, a reporter for The Athletic, then posted the full transcript, showing Zimmer's response evaluating his options between Keenum and Bradford under center. Sam Bradford started the season for the Vikings, but he was out of the lineup by Week Two with yet another knee injury. Like I said, we're looking at every option that we can and where our football team is. Keenum was a journeyman quarterback, playing for three teams in his first five seasons, before going 11-3 with the Vikings in 2017.

"You see when he does get an opportunity, I don't think he's dropped a ball", Spielman said.

The Vikings have given no indication what they plan to do with Bradford, who was their backup quarterback for both playoff games - not Bridgewater, their 2014 first-round draft pick.

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. "But he think he's trying to get better...he's just going about it the wrong way".

As the administrator began to unlock the door, 53-year-old Davidson "slammed" it and "hollered 'Go away, don't come in here'". When the students realized they were unable to enter, they alerted Principal Steve Bartoo , who then tried to enter the room.

"I would have to go with Case Keenum, because he's the guy who did it a year ago", Tomasson said. Minnesota signed Murray last offseason as the expected replacement for Adrian Peterson, but offseason surgery on his ankle kept him sidelined from March until late August.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network asked Zimmer about the details of Bradford's knee injury before the presser.

In 2016, Cousins' completion percentage inside the 10-yard line was just 35.7 percent, which was second worst of 25 QBs with more than 25 pass attempts. If Zimmer is concerned about what a potential contract for Cousins would do to the team's ability to maintain a stout defense and/or its ability to be competitive beyond a short-term window, that's significant. I'll go through the meetings this week with the agents. He has thrown for 6150 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 22 interceptions. It's not a big deal because the crowd's not going to jeer them, they're not going to get written up by you guys saying they suck. "He's a great kid, great competitor, a victor".

"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".
