The 27-year-old Kafka was drafted by Philadelphia in the fourth round in 2010 out of Northwestern, but would go on to play just four games for the Eagles before breaking his hand and losing his backup QB job to Nick Foles.
The bouncing around then commenced for Kafka. The Patriots’ practice squad. The The Jaguars’ practice squad. In 2014, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Vikings now add Kafka to a QB mix that already includes Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill and Pat Devlin. There has also been talk about the Vikings picking up a young developmental QB late in the draft or as a priority UDFA.
Where does Kafka fit in the picture? Right now he’s a camp arm. A few weeks ago he was a guy barely hanging on to his dream, looking for one last shot at glory among the rag-tag veterans at the combine.
So camp arm is a step up for him.
