ESPN’s Ed Werder isn’t the type of reporter that throws wild speculation out. When he states something, he usually has some kind of inside information to back it up.
An earlier leak from Jerome Simpson said that Ponder would most likely be the Vikings starting quarterback on Sunday. However Werder disagrees with Simpson’s statement and stated on Twitter that Freeman is expected to be the guy who gets the nod.
Who do you believe, Werder or Simpson? And who do you think should be the starter? We won’t find out for sure until the team names their starter, which will likely happen on Friday. Until then, the circus that is the Minnesota Vikings continues to entertain.
