Mike Zimmer: If Vikings Pick Wrong QB, I'll Probably Get Fired

Nebraska's Scott Frost 'great hire' who should help JD Spielman grow at WR, Vikings GM says

With Sam... I think he'll stay healthy, but, who knows. Although, he can't be completely ruled out because question marks are also present in his two closest challengers, Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater.

It was a good season for the Vikings.

Since he was a first-round draft pick and is still only 25-years-old, Bridgewater should have a number of other National Football League teams interested in signing him this offseason.

The decision could cost the Vikings upward of $28 million to $30 million per year if they enter the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes in free agency.

Two, and this might be most important, is that signing Cousins to a contract that could pay him almost $30 million a season would make it extremely hard to retain some key members of the Vikings' defense. With the possible departure of McKinnon in free agency, Minnesota could decide to look at a handful of options for a No. 3 running back in April's draft.

"You go back with Case, he plays outstanding this year", Zimmer said. "He's a good man and the Vikings did a good thing by keeping him - for the Vikings". I have a crystal ball, but I don't have it with me.

Bridgewater said "without a question" he wants to be a starting quarterback next season.

While speaking with reporters on Thursday, Zimmer was asked how concerning Bradford's knee injury is going forward.

Earlier this week while on the Ellen Degeneres Show , Haddish met Oprah Winfrey and could not hold back her excitement and tears. The actress is also starring in the upcoming TBS sitcom "The Last O.G." alongside Tracy Morgan .

He can sign with the Vikings, play his home games indoors, and try to elevate a team that went to the NFC championship without its starting quarterback or running back past year.

Keenum may have just one solid season under his belt over a six-year career, but he had it at the right time and will get paid well come March 14. We've won with Teddy Bridgewater. "Can Sam stay healthy?" Peyton Manning took a free agency tour in 2012 before signing with the Denver Broncos, but he was already 36 and coming off a series of neck injuries.

ESPN's Kevin Seifert said that "all options are open" for Spielman.

"I think Kevin is a tremendous coach and obviously the Vikings feel the same way", Shurmur said. "I think the coaching staff can be a little bit more creative on how they use those backs in certain situations".

Since the Vikings' season ended in the NFC Championship Game, Cook has remained in Minnesota to work through his offseason program, which has included on-field rehab with Sugarman.

While the Jets would be an excellent fit for Cousins, they would still have to sell the quarterback on that and get him to sign a contract. Unfortunately, they are struggling at the QB position.

Whomever the Vikings have under center for the 2018 season, NFL Network's Stacey Dales said he will be a lucky individual.

The Bills know they have a quarterback problem, and they were quick to blame Tyrod Taylor throughout the season.
