Or can they just roll with the guy they c Antworten

They have Kirk Cousins, who they’re married to for the next two seasons as the starter, and they have young Kyle Sloter, who they’ve kept on the roster for the past two seasons after the Denver Broncos dropped him before the start of the 2017 season.The Vikings are reportedly set to meet with former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Sean Mannion on Monday. As we mentioned when the rumor first started appearing that the Vikings were interested in Mannion, he may technically meet the definition of a “veteran” quarterback, but he’s really not. In four seasons, he’s thrown just 53 passes in regular season action, has started just one game, and has yet to throw a touchdown pass in a meaningful game.Now, if the Vikings feel the need to bring in another quarterback, there really isn’t a whole lot left out there in free agency. Here are some of the names that currently highlight the list of available free agent quarterbacks outside of Mannion.Josh McCown - Now 40 years old and might not even be interested in playing anymore.Josh Johnson - Played for half the teams in the league and was plucked from the AAF to start the last couple of games for Washington in 2018.Geno Smith - Ugh.Brock Osweiler - See Geno Smith.David Fales - Been in the league longer than Mannion and has thrown fewer passes.Mark Sanchez - You serious, Clark?With the dearth of options available Womens Paul Krause Jersey , as well as a lack of salary cap space as things stand right now, it’s worth asking whether or not the Vikings even need a “veteran” backup at the quarterback spot.It’s obvious that the Vikings like Kyle Sloter, and with good reason. Quite frankly, he looked significantly better than Siemian did last preseason, and he appears to have significant upside for a guy that’s entering his third season in the league. Yes, he’s yet to take a snap in a regular season game, but honestly. . .is his lack of experience really that much of a detriment compared to guys that have been in the league for four years and has started just one game?Judging from what I’ve seen on social media and other places, I think the majority of Vikings fans would like to see the Vikings roll into the season with Sloter as the primary backup to Cousins, and maybe roll the dice on a mid or late-round prospect in this year’s NFL Draft, like a Tyree Jackson or a Brett Rypien or an Easton Stick to fill Sloter’s previous role as the #3 quarterback/clipboard holder.What do you think about the Vikings’ backup quarterback situation, folks? Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster just wants to move on from last December's physical primetime meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals.But the second-year wideout thrust himself into one of the fiercest rivalries in the NFL last season with a memorable block against Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Smith-Schuster was reminded of the hit prior to Sunday's game at Cincinnati."I didn't want to talk about it," Smith-Schuster said. "I knew you guys were going to want to talk about this and make something out of it, but I am just trying to get a "W'' this weekend John Randle Jersey , that's it."Last December, Smith-Schuster delivered a punishing blindside block on Burfict, the Steeler agitator, who ended running back Le'Veon Bell's season in 2015, and injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and receiver Antonio Brown in the same playoff game at Cincinnati later that year.Smith-Schuster got a 15-yard penalty for the block and another penalty for taunting when he stood over Burfict after the hit. He also was given a one-game suspension.Burfict served a four-game suspension to open the current season. He returned to the lineup last week without incident and helped the first-place Bengals beat Miami.Smith-Schuster said he's not concerned about Burfict or the Bengals seeking revenge on Sunday."I'm just worried about the game, playing focused and playing with my teammates," Smith-Schuster said. "It's the AFC North and the rivalry is very strong. It's physical and it's going to be a tough game."Last December's game featured a combined 20 penalties for 239 yards, including a team-record 173 yards by the Bengals. It was also the game where Steelers LB Ryan Shazier sustained a life-altering spinal injury following a tackle."There were a lot of emotions on both sides of the ball, obviously with Shazier and what I did," Smith-Schuster said. "But it's just a physical game. That's what you're going to get out of it."Brown sustained a concussion and was knocked from the game by safety George Iloka - no longer with the Bengals -- following a touchdown reception. The score helped Pittsburgh overcome a 17-point deficit and win its sixth straight in the series on a last-second field goal."They're always trying to get the best of us, either physically, after the play or during plays," Brown said. "That's why they call it the jungle because you have to go in there and be ready to win."Brown met with the media for the first time Friday since two lawsuits were filed against him stemming from an incident at a Florida apartment complex last spring.Ophir Sternberg is seeking damages against Brown , claiming objects thrown by Brown from the 14th floor of an apartment building in April came close to striking Sternberg's father and 22-month-old son. A second lawsuit filed by the owner of the apartment building is seeking more than $15,000 in damages from Brown."I can't discuss pending litigation," Brown said. "I just look forward to my day in court."Brown told police that the incidents occurred after a gun and $80,000 were stolen from his apartment. Brown said in a statement a day earlier that the lawsuits contained "false claims" against him."It comes from being successful, it comes from being in the spotlight, it comes from having fame," Brown said on Friday. "If I was a nobody, (the media) wouldn't be here speculating to begin with."Brown said he's focused on the Bengals this week."I'm a professional and I know what I'm here for," Brown said. "I'm trying to win football games. It's Cincinnati week ... it's a big week for us. Being in this position comes with a lot of distractions and you have to be able to narrow your focus and that's what I'm able to do."NOTES: Steelers' S Morgan Burnett (groin) will miss his fourth straight game, while WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle) will miss his second straight. LB L.J. Fort (ankle) is doubtful. LB Vince Williams fully practiced this week after missing against Atlanta with a hamstring injury.
