The Minnesota Vikings might not be playing this Sunday, but that doesn't mean they aren't active from the sounds of it.
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting (via the folks from Pro Football Talk) that the Vikings are the "most likely destination" for former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman.
During his reports earlier in the day, Glazer said that the two teams most prominently linked with Freeman were the Vikings and the Oakland Raiders. Despite what I was thinking earlier in the week, the folks from PFT seem to be of the impression that the Vikings wouldn't bring Freeman in "without a plan to use him." That seems to indicate that he would be inserted into the lineup much earlier than one would think a newly-acquired quarterback would be placed into the lineup.
It would be a bold move if the team were to sign Freeman with a plan to play him sooner rather than later. . .but, then, when you're 1-3, it might not hurt to make a bold move.
We'll have more on this story as more news comes across on it.
