Mike Zimmer asks a pretty harsh question about Case Keenum

Mike Zimmer asks a pretty harsh question about Case Keenum

Based on everything that was been said before the offseason began regarding the Minnesota Vikings' quarterback situation for 2018, it sounded like Teddy Bridgewater had a pretty decent chance to return to the team next season.

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 Broncos are planning to make an all-out push to sign Kirk Cousins when free agency kicks off March 14, according to Yahoo Sports. The 30-year-old quarterback, whom Minnesota had on the books for $18 million in 2017, played in six quarters last season. Let's take a look at some of the most notable free-agent QBs slated to hit the open market on March 14. Now, with Sam, I love Sam.

For more on what Zimmer had to stay, go to the link above. Zimmer said. "So that's really the $64,000 question with us".

"It's important we continue to keep putting pieces in place on defense".

Similarly, Zimmer pointed out that Bridgewater's practice tape can be hard to evaluate because of the vast difference between running the scout team and playing in real games.

Zimmer praised all three Vikings quarterbacks for their contributions but pointed out the uncertainty with each option.

"The process that we're going through right now with Sam, Teddy and Case", Zimmer said, "(is) we're trying to determine exactly where these three guys are".

Zimmer said he does believe in Bradford, who has a history of knee injuries and was decked by a bone bruise in the second game of the 2017 season. "Probably feel better than I have in a while".

Zimmer said bringing back one or all of the quarterbacks is "definitely" under consideration, but the Vikings are also vying for the services of Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins. They know how we do things now.

"You know I think the big thing is Laquon needs to get out of his own way". Keenum was 9-15 as a starter, with 24 touchdowns and 20 interceptions, before the Vikings signed him to back up Bradford for $2 million last season.

If you want to read into it this way, Zimmer could be publicly driving down Keenum's value a bit here to help the Vikings out in negotiations. "This kid is a great competitor. If he would have had to go in I was comfortable playing him".

"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".
