The search for a backup quarterback for young passer Teddy Bridgewater is already underway in Minnesota. From the sound of things, veteran QB Shaun Hill could be the team’s top choice.

In a relatively unimpressive free agent quarterback class, Shaun Hill is one of the better options. Despite being 35 years old, he has still shown that he can be effective in emergency situations and already has a tie to Minnesota since he was an undrafted free agent for the Vikings back in 2002.
Shaun Hill’s experience could be a valuable asset for Teddy Bridgewater. Although Bridgewater played very well at the end of the 2014 NFL season, some veteran guidance is always nice for a young player hoping to develop into a franchise quarterback.
Multiple sources confirmed the Vikings interest in Shaun Hill. Here are a couple of those reports:
Players can’t be signed until 4 PM EST on March 10th, but players and teams can agree to terms prior to that date and time. As of this writing, Shaun Hill and the Minnesota Vikings haven’t reached any sort of agreement, but there seems to be an interest in bringing Hill back to the Vikings. As always, we’ll keep you up to date on Vikings free agency news as we hear about it and pass the information along.
