Tom House says half the league’s quarterbacks are seeking him out

By Mike Florio

Former Major League pitcher and pitching coach Tom House has branched out to football. And his roster of quarterback clients is increasing. Dramatically, potentially. “I’m a little hesitant about saying everybody who’s coming in because I’m not quite sure whether some of the organizations know their kids are coming here,” […]

PFT’s All-Unemployed Team has a new quarterback

By Mike Wilkening

It’s been a tough run of late for Josh Freeman, so let’s look on the bright side: he is clearly the best unsigned quarterback in late-offseason free agency, the first player at his position who should get a call if there’s an injury. Freeman’s résumé is uncommonly strong for a player […]

Draft week preview: Quarterbacks

By akrammer@1500espn.com

Each coach that drafted a first-round quarterback not named Cam Newton in 2011 has been fired.

That’s what’s at stake when a muddled quarterback class combines with itchy general managers and owners that reach for the next franchise cadence caller.

So it’s understandable when local consensus around the Twin Cities […]

Josh Freeman: I still see myself as a starting-caliber quarterback

By Michael David Smith

Josh Freeman rapidly declined from a franchise quarterback in Tampa Bay to a disappointment in Minnesota to a backup where he is now, with the Giants. But Freeman thinks he can be a franchise quarterback again. Although Freeman knows he has no chance of beating out Eli Manning this season, […]

Rick Spielman, in the MMQB, agrees drafting a QB is ‘torturous’

By dwetmore@1500espn.com

Rick Spielman is in a tough spot. His job demands he finds a quarterback for the Vikings and yet if he gambles and whiffs on a quarterback high in the draft he likely will not get to pick the one after that.

So it’s a tough year to have a high draft […]

Mackey: Vikings retread QBs since 1993, ranked

By pmackey@1500espn.com

A retread quarterback is, for the purposes of this experiment, defined as a quarterback who previously started for a different team – but one who was acquired without giving up valuable assets (such as high draft picks).

The Minnesota Vikings have had a ton of retread quarterbacks over the past two decades. […]

As Tajh Boyd tries to rebuild draft stock, Bridgewater guns for No. 1

By apnews@1500espn.com

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Teddy Bridgewater will spend the next 2 1/2 months trying to convince NFL scouts he’s the No. 1 quarterback – No. 1 player – in this year’s draft.

Tajh Boyd is just itching to show scouts he’s still the quarterback they once thought he could be.

Yes, the two […]

Norv Turner: Everyone’s in agreement that we’re trying to add a young quarterback

By Josh Alper

Norv Turner met the media on Thursday for the first time since becoming the Vikings’ offensive coordinator and there won’t be any prizes for guessing the main topic of conversation. Turner talked a lot about quarterbacks, calling it a process that the team has to go through this offseason and see […]

Notebook: In would-be matchup of 2011 quarterbacks, Ponder set to sit

By akrammer@1500espn.com

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – It took until Week 15 for the Minnesota Vikings to settle their pecking order at quarterback after trying out an assortment of options to a 4-9-1 record.

But three seasons after the Vikings selected Christian Ponder 12th overall, they’re preparing to face another quarterback selected a round […]

Mackey: We, as Vikings followers, have become quarterback masochists

By pmackey@1500espn.com

I’m convinced our recent quarterback famine here in Minnesota has led us all to become football masochists.

We see Christian Ponder throw for 233 yards and a touchdown in a Week 12 game against Green Bay and we say, “Hey! That was pretty good! We want more of that!” We see Matt […]
