The Vikings have three candidates, in theory, for the quarterback job. New offensive coordinator Norv Turner likes his various options.
Some think veteran Matt Cassel, who signed a two-year, $10 million contract after voiding the final year of his prior contract, will be the Week One starter, especially since Turner wanted Cassel last year in Cleveland. Others think rookie Teddy Bridgewater is being groomed to take over sooner than later.
“I think that Matt Cassel has had an outstanding spring and is getting himself ready to really have a good year,” Turner said. “And we know Teddy’s been really, really impressive and a lot further along than I expected him to be.”
Turner thinks all three should get plenty of time in camp to show their stuff. Cassel may be the choice, but we like the fantasy potential of Bridgewater and think he has a chance to post decent numbers if given the opportunity. Low-to-mid QB2 is where we see him falling.
