" "Mike Zimmer admits team's top three quarterbacks all come with "$64000 question"

Making the Case: If Keenum is 'Plan B', his availability hinges on his price tag NFL won't toll Teddy Bridgewater's contract, making him a free agent, sources say

She joined ESPN in 2017.

Not wanting to regret his decision.

The 25-year-old, who was selected by the Vikings 32nd overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, was expected to be the quarterback of the current and future in Minnesota after putting up back-to-back solid campaigns in 2014 and 2015.

The Vikings have already reportedly chose to let both Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater become unrestricted free agents. All three are "definitely" options to consider, according to Zimmer.

"I know there's a lot of rumors and a lot of different things going on out there, but don't believe everything you hear - unless it's from me", Zimmer said. "If you pick the wrong one, it's hard to win in this league without a quarterback".

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer addressed the media on Thursday.

"It's important for myself and Rick and the organization we pick the right guy that can help continue to move forward", Zimmer said. "If we don't do that, then I'll probably be fired".


- If the Vikings want to sign Kirk Cousins, they are going to have to pay him either as much or more than other teams who are in the hunt for the top free agent QB.

NFL.com's Peter Schrager reports from Indianapolis that Kirk Cousins is looking for a short-term deal in free agency this offseason so he can seek another lucrative free-agent contract after this one. Zimmer did not address Cousins directly because that would be against National Football League rules, but he made a reference to the reports the Vikings want him. Overpaying for a quarterback could lead to an inability to grant contract extensions and bring in pieces to bolster the unit.

Zimmer's quote may seem bad out of context, and some fans were upset at the quote without the full question and answer provided.

To make room for the enormous annual salary that is expected to be required to land Cousins, the Broncos have "examined scenarios" in which they create as much as $50 million in salary-cap space, said Robinson. First downs and touchdowns were gained more easily in short-yardage spots, Spielman said, in part because of the 6-foot-3-inch running back. And there's still plenty of time to sort out the quarterback situation.

Keenum took over after Bradford hurt his knee following the season opener and enjoyed a career-best performance, helping the Vikings reach the NFC championship game. The small sample size Minnesota has to work with in determining whether Keenum can replicate his success from last season remains the biggest question.

"I don't think the Vikings have ruled out internally any possibilities for what they'll do at quarterback", Seifert said. "It's just kind of guessing".
