At his press conference at the NFL Scouting Combine today (which we'll have more on tomorrow), Minnesota Vikings' head coach Leslie Frazier said that the backup quarterback position was "open for competition." The Vikings might bring in a free agent to serve as the backup to Christian Ponder, but it's equally likely they'll take a mid-to-late round flyer on a player that could serve as a third-string/developmental prospect if the team doesn't think McLeod Bethel-Thompson is capable of developing into a fully capable NFL quarterback.
So, the quarterback weigh-ins have a bit more significance to the Minnesota Vikings than one might there. They hit the scales in Indianapolis on Friday, and we have the results for you here.
