Quarterback in the Vikings' Sights

Jay Cutler dreams fade quickly in the harsh light of reality – clearly, multiple people in the organization, not just Brad Childress, have serious reservations about what’s between the guy’s ears – but that doesn’t necessarily mean an end to the Vikings‘ efforts to add to their corps of signal callers.  In fact, there is at least one guy I know the organization is intrigued by:  Kansas State‘s Josh Freeman, who is scheduled to be among the draft prospects the team hosts at Winter Park on April 8-9.  The chances of the Vikings actually landing Freeman with the #22 pick are slim right now, but might improve if, for example, the Jets were to swing a deal for Cutler, leaving them less likely to snap Freeman up themselves.  That being said, I doubt the Vikes would forgo the chance to take an Eben Britton or a Percy Harvin with their first-rounder, even if it meant getting a highly-touted QB like Freeman who certainly has more upside than a marginal prospect like John David Booty.  But they’re having the guy in anyway, just to cover all their bases.  Chilly is nothing if not thorough.
