New, comments

For the second time this week, the Vikings have parted ways with the former Chargers quarterback.

While we don’t know whether or not quarterback Brad Sorensen will be collecting an NFL paycheck in 2016, he’s certainly racking up a great deal of frequent flyer miles, courtesy of the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings have just announced that they have, once again, waived Sorensen from the active roster. The team had initially waived him on Tuesday, but brought him back to Minnesota and re-signed him after the injury to Teddy Bridgewater. Sorensen played more than half of the Vikings’ 27-25 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, thanks to Joel Stave suffering a hand injury during the contest.

This means that, as things stand right now, Stave and Shaun Hill are the only two quarterbacks on the Minnesota roster. General Manager Rick Spielman has said that he wanted to address the quarterback situation in the very near future, and with the way things sit now, that’s almost certainly going to have to be the case.

With the release of Sorensen, the Vikings’ roster is now down to 74 players. They need to be down to 53 in a little less than 24 hours. We’ll be keeping track of everyone that the Vikings release prior to tomorrow’s deadline.
