The Vikings Twitter account was nice enough to post this image of our new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater putting ink to paper this morning and signing his rookie contract.
That’s it. He’s official. He’s a Viking.

The formalities out of the way, now the real work begins. The work of beating out Matt Cassel to become the starting QB.
Everyone wants it to happen sooner rather than later. Teddy wants it. Mike Zimmer and Rick Spielman want it. Zygi Wilf wants it. The fans want it.
The only one who doesn’t want it is Matt Cassel.
Life sucks for a borderline starting QB trying to hang on against a first round draft pick. Everyone’s glad to have Cassel around as an insurance policy. But nobody really WANTS him. Not deep down.
And Christian Ponder? A mere afterthought at this point. He should get to work developing a talk show with his Twitter-block-happy wife.
Seriously Samantha. YOU posted the video of him washing his hair. And then you get mad at us for blogging about it and block us from your Twitter?
